The Sharks Aquatic Club is a parent run and professionally coached competitive swim team swimming out of pools in both Shelby and Kings Mountain, North Carolina. The certified coaching staff strives to provide each swimmer with: direction, technical adjustments, goal setting, discipline, and a positive learning experience.
Our swimmers compete locally, regionally, and nationally.

The mission of the Sharks Aquatic Club is to provide a positive environment where swimmers have the opportunity to succeed and grow in the sport of swimming. We strive to create the highest quality of swimming through hard work, discipline, and goal setting in a team environment.
All swimmers are supported and valued regardless of ability.

Beyond providing the highest quality of training and performance, we strive to instill lifelong values such as self-confidence, honesty, integrity, and teamwork which will allow our athletes to be successful in and out of the pool.


Welcome to the Sharks Aquatic Club!

The Sharks Aquatic Club is a year-round swim team program serving Cleveland County and the surrounding areas. The program serves swimmers age 6 years and older. SAC is a member of USA Swimming, Inc. (USAS), North Carolina Swimming,

Inc. (NCS), the Western Carolina Swim Association (WCSA), and the Blue Ridge Swim League (BRSL).


The goal of the program is for each swimmer to reach his or her capability potential (regardless of competitive level). The program fosters swimmers’ development and maturity into excellent competitive swimmers. Through the commitment and dedication learned through SAC, the program strives to help the swimmer develop a positive self-image beyond swimming and understand the benefits of commitment, dedication, self-discipline, time management, and goal setting inside and outside of the pool. The team’s organizational by-laws are also located on the team website,

Financial/Service Commitment to our team:

Please see our Team & Parent Handbooks under the "Parent Information" tab for financial commitment and volunteer service hour requirements. Service hours may be earned by working at a meet, serving on the SAC Board and committees, and assisting with team functions.  We strive to keep costs reasonable and our total membership engaged. Therefore, we ask for assistance from parents and other family members with volunteering and helping the team.

Dues and other fees are drafted at the beginning of each month.  We hold practice and meets all year, but we bill on a ten-month cycle for our year round swim program.  You will not be billed for monthly dues July and August. 

We look forward to having you join the Sharks Aquatic Club and are excited for another great season!
