Hammerhead Aquatics, formed in June of 2004, is Fort Lauderdale's premiere Masters Swim Club. Under the direction of founder and head coach John Grzeszczak, the team competes at the highest level and has won six IGLA World Championships.

The first title came in 2007 in Paris, France and was quickly followed up by a championship performance at the World Outgames in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2009. The third crown came at the 2011 IGLA Championships in Honolulu, Hawaii. Hammerhead also captured titles in Reykjavik, Iceland in 2012, and again at the 2012 World Outgames in Antwerp, Belgium. In 2012, Hammerhead Aquatics, was one of only three USMS Masters clubs to put a swimmer in the Olympic Trials in Omaha, Nebraska. In 2017 we will be the host committee for Aquatic Sports at the 2017 World Outgames, in Miami, Florida.

The team invites anyone to come and swim, as Hammerhead Aquatics promotes diversity, acceptance, friendship, competition and camaraderie. Beginning with just five members in its initial year, the team has grown to over 100 full-time members. We offer 14 pool workouts each week, and all ages and swim levels are welcome. Whether you are looking for a weekly fitness workout, becoming a world champion swimmer, training for a Triathlon or just looking to learn how to swim and want a great social outlet, Hammerhead Aquatics can fulfill all of your needs. Headed by a world-class coaching and instructional staff, all fees are based on ability to pay.

Get involved today and join the fun with Hammerhead Aquatics!

Coach John S. Grzeszczak, Sr. heads up the program. He brings over 30 years of swimming and coaching experience to this program. Coach John has led the Hammerheads to three IGLA World Championships and has been named to coach at the 2008 FINA World Championships in Perth, Australia. His love for the sport of swimming is truly exciting. Workouts are made fun and individualized depending on each swimmer’s needs. Not everyone is the same, so everyone gets the attention needed for them to excel in the pool, on the ground, and in life.
We hold practice 14 times a week including a guided clinic to help improve your technique, skill, and overall fitness level.
