The Shippensburg Aquatic Club (SAC) offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of SAC to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual to the best of their abilities.


Any athlete who can swim the length of the pool (25 yards) unassisted is eligible to join the team.

Practices will be broken into groups based on age and ability level.

Group 1 - Age 8 and Under Swimmers and all Beginners

Beginners of all ages that are not yet comfortable swimming multiple strokes or swimming 50 yards unassisted will swim with Group 1. Group 1 will also include all 8 and under swimmers. 8 and under swimmers who can swim the length of the pool are eligible to compete at meets once they are comfortable. Beginner swimmers over age 8 will need to progress to Group 2 in order to compete in meets.

Group 2 – Age 9 and Over Advanced Swimmers

Age 9 and Over swimmers who are able to complete two lengths of the pool, unassisted, of at least two strokes, will practice with Group 2. Group 2 will focus on development of the strokes with practices tailored to the ability levels within the group.


Meet schedules are tailored based on the competitive needs and expectations of each training group.
