About MSC

 

Established in 1963, MSC is a competitive and recreational swim club based out of McAllen TX that is dedicated to the continued development of the sport in our area. 

Since 1994, MSC has been home to close to 5,000 participants and continues to produce many of the area’s top swimming performers, most of which compete at multiple levels each year including UIL district, regional, & state competition. Throughout the years our athletes have also gone on to compete at various national level meets and many have gone on to swim at NCAA Div I, II & III Universities. We are also the only swim club in the RGV that has a registered US Masters swim program available for anyone 18 & up wishing to continue or begin a swim training regiment

We are recognized by USA Swimming as a Level 2 Club for being a parent governed organization and operate year round with 2 competitive swim seasons. We strive to encourage kids to reach their fullest potential, display good sportsmanship & have a great time! 

MSC is a non-profit & member support  organization that relies on parent volunteers, fundraising events & local support to keep our team operational.

SAFE SPORT

USA Swimming and McAllen Swim Club‘s top priority continues to be keeping our athletes safe. No form of abuse, including child sexual abuse, has a place in our sport. As a part of our continued commitment to safeguarding our athletes, USA Swimming has enacted enhancements to our Safe Sport policy and education requirements for all USA swimming Clubs.

The U.S. Center for SafeSport (“the Center”), the separate, independent, organization that oversees all sexual misconduct reports in the Olympic and Paralympic Movement created the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies to set a baseline for acceptable safety standards that limit one-on-one interactions between adults and minor athletes. The Center urged all National Governing Bodies (NGBs) to add restrictions tailored to fit the sport.

  • On April 29, 2019, USA Swimming released its Minor Athlete Protection  Policy (MAAPP) addressing one-on-one interactions, social media and electronic communications, travel: local and team, locker rooms and changing areas and massages, rubdowns and athletic training modalities.  All USA Swimming member clubs are required to implement MAAPP in full by June 23, 2019.
  • Starting June 23, 2019, as a condition of membership, all athlete members ages 18 and over must complete Athlete Protection Training.  

We need every family to read and acknowledge the Safe Sport Policies to best ensure the safety of our participants. If you have any questions about the enhanced protection for our athletes and how McAllen Swim Club is doing everything we can to keep our swimming family safe please contact us at contactmsc@yahoo.com

Join us in our commitment to do more to keep our athletes safe and abuse out of our sport.
