Aloha and Welcome to Hawaii Swimming Club's Home Page


We bid our last respect to "Coach" Soichi Sakamoto, who founded Hawaii Swimming Club in 1945 and Started the Keo Nakama Swimming Invitationals in 1946.

As early as the mid-1930's, he developed interval training, speed play in the irrigation ditch flumes (currently known as Fartlek-training), the swim bench. He was truly an innovative coach - ahead of his time !

There are stories about "Coach" Sakamoto, just click on the button to your left "Stories".
