Thank you for your interest in MAC’s Competitive Swimming Program. MAC has been fostering excellence in the sport of competitive swimming for 40 years. Throughout these years, MAC athletes have proudly represented our community at Local, Regional, Provincial, National and International events. MAC has come to be recognized as one of the top clubs in the Canadian swimming community.

We pride ourselves in providing opportunities for swimmers to develop their full potential in the sport of competitive swimming.


Every new swimmer must attend an assessment conducted by a MAC Coach to determine whether they have the swimming skills and abilities to join our program.

Swimmers will be assessed for admission into either our Competitive program or our Introduction to Competitive program ("Olympic Prospects").  Usually swimmers that have never swam competitively before and are under the age of 10 will be assessed for our Olympic Prospects.  All new swimmers over the age of 10 will be assessed for our competitive program. The assessment will take about 15 - 20 minutes.

Please contact our MAC club office at 905-475-8161 or at [email protected] to book an assessment.


  • Assessment form (bring the completed form with you on the day you choose to attend)
  • Swimsuit (No baggy shorts or ’beach wear’)
  • Towel
  • Goggles
  • Cap

All swimmers should be changed and ready to swim at the start of the session.  No decisions regarding group placement will be made on the day of the assessment.  Each swimmer will receive an email with their results within a couple of days.  If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].


MAC normally swims at the Markham Pan Am Centre, Centennial Community Centre, Cornell Community Centre, Angus Glen Community Centre, and Thornlea Community Centre. Some groups occasionally swim at different pools based on availability and pool closures. Depending on the group your child swims in you may have practices at one or more pools.  Not all groups swim at all pools so you may find that your child’s group does not swim at the pool closest to your home.


See 2020-2021 Training Schedule under the "Groups" drop-down tab for information on where and what time each group trains.
