NPAC is a member of the Middle Atlantic local swimming community within USA Swimming. A swimmer must be registered for USA Swimming to be eligible to compete in any Mid-Atlantic swim meets. Registration is good for one year. All NPAC US swimmers will be registered as a team during Fall registration; by the end of September.

The NPAC US team trains and competes throughout the year. Though NPAC US swimming includes the development of young swimmers, please carefully consider whether your child is prepared for the rigor of this program. US practices are conducted at a faster tempo than SAL practices. US swimmers quickly execute their warm-up in preparation for a main set that includes more yards and faster intervals than a SAL workout. As the NPAC US swimmers enter middle school their training also includes a 30 minute gym workout (dryland) prior to entering the water. Morning (before school) practices are available for Middle School and High School US swimmers. All US Swimmers also swim NPAC - SAL. Contact Jeff Faikish (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in having your child swim NPAC - US.
US Meets are optional meets that most often run on the weekends and may require a hotel stay. US swimmers can choose which meets they would like to attend and which events they would like to compete in.
