Meet the coaches and get your questions answered!
Middlebury Aquatic Club (MAC) offers an organized age-group swimming program for children from 5 years of age and up. We meet the needs of all swimmers, from beginner to advanced, by following a progressive developmental model that fosters excellence and commitment to the team in a fun atmosphere. We want swimmers to achieve their best, and as members of MAC, they will learn the value of sportsmanship and be empowered with physical, emotional, and intellectual skills to last a lifetime.
Our season begins October 10, 2016, and will extend into March for those swimmers qualifying for higher-level championship meets. Practices are held at Middlebury College’s Natatorium.
Swimmers who are at least 5 years old and can swim 25 yards independently are eligible to join our program.
