Age Group South Division

The Age Group South Division is designed specifically for swimmers ages 6 to 12 years old, ranging in ability from beginner competitive to the top 12&U swimmers in the state.  These families typically live in South Scottsdale, or other cities in the East Valley.  These groups provide an opportunity for swimmers and families to join SAC and practice at a location closer to their home and school.  Coaches are focused on the long-term development of each individual and swimmers are able to progress through the program at their own rate to reach their potential.
