Team History

In 2003, Power Aquatics Swim Club was started by the Tipton High School Aquatics Director and Coach, Shawnna Lancaster. Shawnna added to Tipton's long history of summer swim programs and made swimming and training available throughout the entire calendar year for the local students of the Tipton community. In 2004, Jason Lancaster and Brent Lord converted Power Aquatics to an officially recognized club affiliate of USA Swimming.

Power Aquatics has had satellite club locations at a variety of school systems over the years including at Hamilton Heights, Warren Central, Decator Central and Ben Davis.  Over 1,000 families have used the services available from the swim club.  The club swimmers have qualified and competed in swim meets such as Divisional meets, State meets, Zone meets, Mid-States, Speedo Sectionals, Speedo Futures, Speedo Jr. Nationals, and Speedo Nationals. Alumni have swam at colleges and some have obtained swim scholarships at colleges such as Purdue University, Ball State University and Indiana State University.  At least four Power Aquatics alumni currently coach at USA swim clubs.
