The Souderton Area Community Aquatic Club (SACAC) offers our swimmers the opportunity to join Souderton’s USA Swimming team.  Our USA Swimming team attends several USA Swim meets during the SAL season in addition to the regular SAL meets.  USA Swim meets provide swimmers with a chance to try different events, and allow swimmers to gain valuable racing experience.  These meets also give our swimmers a chance to form new friendships within the swimming community.

Our USA Swimmers are encouraged to strive to qualify for Middle Atlantic Swimming’s Junior Olympics (JOs).  JOs is a championship meet that takes place fist week in March.  In order to compete in JOs swimmers must be age 14 and under, they must be registered with USA Swimming, and they must have swum the qualifying times in a USA Swimming meet.  The 2019 Junior Olympics Short Course qualifying times can be found here, 2019 Short Course Junior Olympics Qualifying Times. updated when 2020 times are released  If a swimmer does not qualify for Junior Olympics they can choose to attend the Sub JO champs (Silver Meet) at the end of March. The silver meet Qualifying times can be found here, 2019 Qualifying Times for Silvers updated when 2020 times are released

Our USA Swimmers are encouraged to continue practicing for up to seven weeks after the regular SAL season ends (early February) until JOs (March 2-5) and MA-silver meet (March 24-26).  There is an additional fee to cover costs such as renting the pool, paying our coaches to attend meets and practice, and paying lifeguards for the additional practice.
