The Mt. Lebanon Aqua Club (MLAC) offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. We offer year-round competitive swim teams as well as seasonal pre-competitive programs.  It is the goal of the Mt. Lebanon Aqua Club to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.

MLAC is a competitive swim team. It is the expectation that members will compete. A balanced schedule of various types of meets is made available to all swimmers. These meets provide swimmers many opportunities to compete within their age group with others of similar ability.

Our Stingray Group will be encouraged to swim in approximately 8 to 10 meets per year. All other training groups will compete in 10 or more meets per year. Stingray and Dolphin are encouraged to swim in meets for the experience and to gain confidence in their swimming, with no undue pressure. Improved times are tangible evidence of progress, and, as such, are rewards for the many hours a swimmer logs at practice.

Swimmers should have the opportunity to experience this success. However, if a swimmer senses undue pressure to perform there is a danger of dropout. Everyone loses if a promising swimmer drops-out, the swimmer most of all. It is our coaching staff's desire to have all young swimmers maintain a keen interest in swimming so that they will have long-term success.

Open Club tryouts are held in September and January, however a swimmer may try out for the team at any time by contacting us.
