Tryout for SAC

Sharks Aquatic Club, Cleveland County's only competitive swim club, would like you to try out for the team.

Welcome to Sharks Aquatic Club

Sharks Aquatic Club is a non-profit competitive swim team focused on developing swimming skills in the youth of the community and competing at the local, regional, state, and national levels. We are excited to have you.

Please take some time to visit our website at and read our parent and team handbooks.

We have six different training groups, based on both age and ability level. These groups are summarized below:

Hammerheads.  The Hammerhead group is an entry level group for swimmers who have recently completed swim lessons. Swimmers should be able to swim 25 yards of continuous freestyle and backstroke. Competition is not required at this level; however swimmers are encouraged to attend meets when they feel ready.

Tigersharks.  The Tigershark group is an entry level group for swimmers to begin refining the four competitive strokes through use of drills and fun games. This basic program prepares swimmers to begin competitions.  Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards of the four competitive strokes.

Mako 1.  The Mako 1 Group is group for swimmers typically aged 8-12 who have begun to compete in meets. This group normally practices five times per week with a focus on improving best times.

Mako 2.  The Mako 2 Group is a continued, advanced age group program typically for ages 10-14. Swimmers have become technically proficient in all four strokes, and are progressing to make state and regional time standards. This group improves in all four strokes and has training six times per week.

Senior.  The Senior Group is our highest level of training. This Group is for serious swimmers normally of age 14 and older. These swimmers will swim six times per week with additional specialized training (e.g. endurance, weight training) will be offered for this group. Senior swimmer goals include state, regional, sectional, and national competition levels.
