Swim Team is a sports movie full of familiar highs and lows, great expectations and come-from-behind victories.
"Swim Team" mostly aims to educate and inspire; on those counts, it succeeds.

Uplifting sports documentary.
Real heroes are parents like the ones in this movie. Some are single mothers, sacrificing, struggling, going above and beyond, out of love for their children. This movie celebrates them, along with their children who succeed, against the odds.
