Cougar Aquatic Team: Welcome


Welcome to the Cougars Den

Founded in 1985, CAT is a recognized USA swim team that practices at the Haddam-Killingworth High School pool and competes at several locations and colleges around Connecticut and New England. Under the sponsorship of the Haddam-Killingworth Recreation Department, CAT provides competitive training programs where individual needs and goals are given careful consideration. Swimmers are grouped based on ability, age, and objectives.   Practices are available seven days a week with incorporated dry land training (strength training and exercises outside of the water), as well as periodic specialized clinics. Our team is open to swimmers with the desire and determination to succeed in a sport strongly dominated by outstanding student athletes. 



The mission of the Cougar Aquatic Team is to provide a competitive swimming program to Haddam and Killingworth, and its surrounding towns, that will develop student athletes who are a credit to society.  By providing high quality training for age group, senior, and   elite swimmers, emphasizing physical, social, and emotional development, the Cougar Aquatic Team is committed to excellence and dedicated to empowering our student athletes to be champions in and out of the water. 


We will measure our success by

our individual progress, team unity, and family participation.



The vision of the Cougar Aquatic Team is to continue its dedication

in providing a competitive swimming program that consistently

produces student athletes that are a credit to society.
