Tidewater Aquatic Club
(TAC) was founded in March 1994, as a parent-run, year-round swim
team. TAC is a tax exempt, non-profit USA Swimming sanctioned team
for swimmers ages of five (5) and up. It dedicates itself to the
personal development of each team member towards their personal
goals, woven into a vibrant set of shared team goals. TAC's parent

mission, vision, and goals. The head coach manages and directs the
operations of the team to meet those visions and goals for TAC's
competitive swim program.
