Since 2010, in the interests of promoting health, fitness, instruction and learning San Mateo Athletic Club has offered Bulldog Swim Club (BSC) and Bulldog Aquatics programs conducted at the College of San Mateo Aquatic Center in San Mateo, CA. We offer competitive and recreational swim teams and programs for ages 5-18. Our coaches are positive and supportive of all levels of swimming. Emphasis is placed on stroke technique and developing children and teens who wish to improve their swimming and racing skills. Practices are offered 5 days a week (6 days for the Gold and Senior level athletes). Our developmental (non-competitive) programs are designed to foster a love for the water while learning the necessary skills to move up to the next level. We offer several intrasquad meets throughout the year to introduce our athletes to swim meets and provide a safe environment for them to race. Our competitive athletes swim year-round and regularly attend USA sanctioned swim meets. In these levels, we continue to focus on technique while developing a commitment to swimming and their team. 

Our swim lesson program is designed to develop a love for swimming with an emphasis on safety. Our instructors are trained to teach proper technique while ensuring that all swimmers regularly practice water safety. We love watching our swim lesson kids graduate to swim team!

**We conduct practices in the rain or shine. We will pull athletes from the pool in the event of lightning.
