 Irish Aquatics (IA) swims at two locations: Bremen High School and Rolf's Aquatics Center on the campus of the University of Notre Dame.  IA has earned a Level 1 program designation by USA Swimming.


Irish Aquatics is a USA year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to national competitor.

All of our coaches, as members of the American Swim Coaches Association, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.


IA is a non profit club, is run by its elected Board of Directors and Parent Advisory Board which meets each month. All members are welcome at each meeting and encouraged to be involved in team activities and fundraisers. We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team through short course and long course programs. Thank you for joining us. We are looking forward to meeting you. Please feel free to ask another member or coach any question you may have. Irish Aquatics; PO Box 10142, South Bend, IN 46680
