APOLOGIES to all of our athletes and families, but in all the excitement that this time of year (and the recent weather) brings, I completely forgot to send out a couple of our meet recaps! Back in January, we had athletes brave the first batch of winter weather to compete at two different meets.  30 of our middle school and older elementary school athletes made the trek down to Indy to the CSC Winter Invite held at IUPUI.  This meet is known for being one of the most competitive club...

Congratulations to all our SWAC athletes who represented Team Indiana last weekend at the Mid-State All Star Championships! Adrianna Germann, Allie Heine, Sydney Koehrn, Charlie Lang, Owen Lindsay, Jillian Lynam, Macartney Mahler, Eryn McLaughlin, Ripley Merritt, and Jason Starodub were all chosen to compete by being one of the top 4 Indiana athletes in their event(s), and they were joined at the meet by Coach Theresa who was selected to be a part of the Team Indiana coaching staff! “Quads” is a championship-style meet that matches the fastest athletes from Indiana against those from Kentucky,...

December 7th-9th, SWAC sent ~50 athletes to the NASA Winter Classic meet up in Middlebury.  This meet is always a fun one for our team and serves as the first “travel meet” for many of our younger athletes.  On Friday and Sunday, our middle school athletes also got the chance to test themselves against many of the Northridge High School team members, which is always fun to see. This year was another great experience for our team as the swimmers put up some strong performances and capped what has been...

Last weekend, SWAC went with a “divide and conquer” approach as we had athletes competing at two different meets.  Splitting the team does sometimes add an extra level of stress for our athletes, families, and coaches, but from time to time we think it’s necessary to make sure all of our athletes are provided with the appropriate racing opportunities. This time around, our athletes showed that they were more than up for the challenge, as they once again shown through at both competitions! We sent 40 athletes, mostly high schoolers...

THANK YOU one last time to EVERYONE who helped out with our 2018 SWAC Fall in the Pool Invitational!  Hosting a meet that size is a lot of work for the entire team (and, combined with a broken Summit pool heater, slows down the meet recap delivery process quite a bit), but we’re grateful to be able to provide such a good competitive environment for our SWAC athletes close to him. This year’s meet was another great installment for out team, with 23 different athletes winning individual events and more...

Hello SWAC Families! SWAC is very pleased to announce that we will be hosting a three session Fitter and Faster swim clinic here at Summit on January 12 & 13 for our Age Group athletes! We know that many of you have traveled to take part in these clinics before, so we're very excited to be able to offer the opportunity right here at home. SWAC has worked together with the Fitter and Faster staff to choose a curriculum that will focus on areas important to our athletes' development. We think that these clinics will...

Each week, SwimSwam, along with Michael Phelps’ MP brand, selects a handful of outstanding performances from across the country to highlight as their “Wonders of Age Group Swimming”.  This week, SWAC’s own Adrianna Germann was recognized for her performance at our October IMX meet!  (They've fallen a little behind the schedule, but we won't hold that against them) You can read a the full recap of Adrianna's performance and see who shared the honor with her HERE. Congrats, Adrianna-keep up the good work!

Last weekend SWAC sent 80+ athletes across town to the TRAC Fall Classic held at Helen P Brown Natatorium.  It was a quick meet, but a great chance for our swimmers to show off how hard they’ve been working through the early part of the season. It was another great meet for our team overall, with 8 different athletes winning individual events and EVERY SWAC athlete earning at least 1 lifetime best swim (either by dropping time or completing an event legally for the first time)!

Last weekend we sent 50+ athletes to the OLY Fall Classic held at Oakland University in Michigan.  The meet also served as our annual “team travel” trip with the athletes traveling together in a charter bus and rooming together at the hotel. Having to manage and compete outside of their normal routines and support systems is a challenging but important experience for all of our athletes, and they did a great job not only performing at the meet but representing SWAC well throughout the entire trip! Many, MANY thanks to...
