OUR MISSION

Building exceptional people through excellent swimming


OUR VISION

Our vision is to develop a well-balanced training program so every member achieves their maximum potential both in and out of the pool. Our program offers a natural progression of levels from a traditional swim team participation to a top-level competitive swimming program. We are committed to providing a safe environment for all participants. To do so we have athlete protection policies and guidelines in place.


OUR VALUES

  • Nurturing a "One Team" Philosophy by fostering a cohesive team environment through competition, club events, our mentor program, and strong communication. 

  • Supporting Needs by creating an enjoyable and disciplined workout structure that works for swimmers competing at various levels within the sport.

  • Providing a Path that offers a well-defined, long-term approach of gradually increasing degrees of commitment to reach peak performance levels with each member.

  • Creating a Positive and Safe Environment by giving our swimmers the right resources and a positive learning environment at each site pool where they feel safe and comfortable to swim.

 

OUR SOLIDARITY STATEMENT

In this time of reunification and rebuilding our club, PAC would like to welcome all of our members. Whether you are newcomers or oldtimers, have been swimming through the pandemic or took a break, live in one of Portland's four quadrants or one of its many suburbs, we are thrilled to have you as part of our community.

As we move forward from these trying times of uncertainty, our community of parents, coaches, and swimmers are unwavering in being at the forefront of bridging the racial and income disparities in this sport. As we strive to build and sustain an inclusive environment that embraces and values diversity, we pledge to foster fairness, equity, inclusion, and belonging of every race, color, national origin, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, and family income level.
