The Palos Verdes Aquatic Club is a year-round competitive swim team, chartered through both Southern California Swimming and United States Swimming. The team employs a USS certified coaching staff; senior coach Michael Camp, age group coaches:  Ly-An Cantimbuhan and Shannon Aguilar. All have a variety of experience working with and motivating children. Other qualifications include extensive backgrounds in competitive swimming as both coaches and swimmers. The following is general information about PVAC to give prospective members an idea of what the program is about.

Starting Out: New swimmers need to have their skills evaluated by a member of the coaching staff so he/she will be placed in a workout group that will meet his/her individual needs. Swimmers should arrive at the Palos Verdes High School pool in their swimsuit, and bring a pair of goggles and a towel. If necessary, there are restrooms available for changing. A parent/guardian should accompany the swimmer the first day in order to complete necessary paperwork.  

Ages: 5+ years and up ( Practices are designed to accommodate different ages and abilities.)

Competition : Swimmers should plan to attend approximately one meet per month. Meet schedules are handed out at the start of each new season. Swimmers may choose which meets they want to attend mid-season, but are expected to attend all mandatory championship swim meets.
