Nashville Aquatic Club
40 Years of
Tradition, Dedication, Excellence

NAC is a year round competitive swim program that has been operating in the Middle Tennessee area since 1975. The Competitive Team is comprised of seven practice groups ranging from the entry-level swimmer to the Olympic Trial qualifier.  Our non-competitive programing, PreComp and SwimFit, both use the same core principles and progressions as our Competitive Team. 

The NAC philosophy is on long-term athlete development, which allows for gradual development of athletes in the early stages, and adaptation as they progress, developing character traits to help them to reach a higher level of athletic excellence.
Many of our swimmers go on to compete collegiately as student-athletes.  Check out our current list of Collegiate Swimmers.

The team fosters self-improvement and goal achievement. Values such as hard work, self-discipline and perseverance create a culture of positive athletes and team success.  For a list of NAC athletes who have reached the highest level of our sport, check out the NAC Hall of Fame.

The NAC Mission
Nashville Aquatic Club aims to develop the character, skills, and desire necessary for each child to maximize his or her potential. Through swimming, we aim to develop physical fitness, self-discipline, and self-esteem, which will assist children in maximizing their personal, intellectual, and athletic potential.
