Nittany Lion Aquatic Club : Background-image


NLAC is the club for every swimmer!

This means that if you are 5, just completed a great summer season on the Park Forest, Welch, or SPRA swim team, and want to keep swimming, we are the Club for you.

If you are 9 or 10, and you want to get faster, whether it be to win an event at the CPSL Championships or make an A standard or a Junior Olympic Qualifying time, we are the Club for you.

If you about to enter high school, and want to be ready for the high school team, we are the Club for you.

If you are in high school and that is really your main interest, we are the out-of-season and (at times) in-season Club for you.

If you are in high school and want to make that progression from JOs, to Senior Champs, to Sectionals, to Futures, to Junior Nationals, to Senior Nationals, we are the Club for you.

What you might not know is that we provide a training and competition home for all kinds of swimmers and multi-sport athletes - Penn State students who want to continue training and competing in USA meets, Penn State students who want to get faster and make the Penn State Swimming and Diving Team, and Penn State students who participate in Paralympic programs.

Whatever your goals, whatever your interests, we are the Club for you. We have an unparalleled staff of experienced, dedicated, and accomplished coaches - read their biographies here. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact us.


NLAC Receives National Recognition!

Not even a global pandemic can stop our team! Through the last many months, NLAC has had limited pool time, practices in near freezing conditions, 1000's of temperatures taken, forms filled out and social distances kept. But even through all of that, we learned that our very own Nittany Lion Aquatic Club has been recognized as one of the top 200 swim clubs nationally! This just shows how dedicated our swimmers are and how hard you all work to achieve your goals. Great work! And...


Congratulations John!

NLAC swimmer John Brownstead has just been named a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, represent less than 1% of US high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring students in each state on the SAT.
