Want to Join Bulldog Aquatic Club

The Bulldog Aquatic Club exists to promote the development of young people into responsible athletes through the sport of swimming.   

  • We work to achieve our purpose by encouraging our swimmers to Work Hard, Be Disciplined, Work as a Team, Set Goals, and Swim with Confidence.  
  • We also promote and support the academic success of our athletes.

  • We are a year-round competitive swim team, not a recreational team.    

  • We seek to be well represented and successful at the State level, Sectional level and beyond.  

Bulldog Aquatic Club (BAC) attracts swimmers from Livonia, Northville, Novi, Plymouth, Canton, Westland and other nearby Detroit, Michigan suburbs.  We swim in Northville and Livonia pools, but we are known around the state of Michigan for our excellence.  Our pride is our swimmers; our mission is excellence; our home is the water; our family is the team; our name is B-A-C.

Interested in joining the Bulldog Aquatic Club?

At the beginning of each of our three sessions during the year, Bulldog Aquatic Club offers the opportunity for swimmers to come and be evaluated by our coaching staff for group placement and try out swim practice without charge. During "try-it," swimmers new to BAC are able to swim side-by-side with current BAC team members at practice.  Prior to or during "try-it" your swimmer will be evaluated for potential group placement.

"Try-it weeks" are held at specific times of the year and may be different for different swim groups. You must contact our Membership coordinator at to schedule and evaluation or make a reservation in order for your swimmer to participate in a "try-it week."  Generally, the try-its will be held at the beginning of each session.  Generally, evaluations for our younger groups will take place a few weeks before the beginning of each session. Our sessions start September 1st (Session I), January 1st (Session II), and May 1st (Session III).

The next "try-it" period will be for our Session I.  Session I practices start September 1st.  Try-it week will be the first week in September.

Evaluations for the Bulldogs, Jr. Dogs, Underdogs and Puppy I and II may be held at the Northville High School School pool in Northville in mid to late August.   After evaluation in August, swimmers in these groups can attend practice during Try It week as noted above to have the opportunity to try out an actual practice.

Evaluation and Try It for the Sr. Dogs will be held the first week in September at the Stevenson High School pool in Livonia.  New swimmers will have the opportunity to try out an actual practice.
