New Swimmers Interested in Joining AAC

Any swimmers interested in joining one of the Competitive Programs at AAC (Age Group, Age Group Plus, Age Group Performance, Senior Prep, or Senior) MUST schedule to attend a practice in order to join the program.

Swimmers interested in joining one of AAC’s developmental and conditioning programs (Mini Gators, Gator I, Gator II, Gator III, Swim Clinic, Middle-School Sprint, or High-School Sprint, or if you’re not sure) must attend one of the New Swimmer Evaluations.

New swimmer evaluations for the 2019-20 year will be held on July 25th (registered in full) for Arlington County residents and on July 25th for anyone interested in joining AAC. All evaluations will be held at Wakefield pool from 6-8pm.

IMPORTANT: Your Registration Fee must be paid at the time of your Swimmer Evaluation in order to reserve a spot on the team.

Your swimmer will be evaluated by an AAC Coach and you will be advised as to which group you qualify for registration. Once you are an active member of AAC, you will not need to do any future tryouts. Your coach will provide a recommendation at the end of each swim season. Minimum requirement for entry level is to easily enter the water and swim 25 yd freestyle with side breathing and 25 yd backstroke without stopping beginning at age 6 or above.

All of our coaches, as members of USA Swimming and the American Swim Coaches Association, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.

Team Support

The Arlington Aquatic Club, sponsored by Arlington County, is a non profit club run by its Boosters Board which meets periodically throughout the season. All members are welcome at each meeting and encouraged to be involved in team activities and fundraisers.

We are constantly growing and training swimmers to maintain a well-rounded competitive swim team.
