Scottsdale Aquatic Club (SAC) as a member of USA Swimming, Inc., is a year-round, competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. As a club, we are dedicated to giving our swimmers the best opportunity for achieving their potential and swimming at the highest level of competition. Our goal is to provide each and every member the best environment to improve their swimming skills and achieve success. SAC has been incorporated since 1964 and is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization run by and elected Board of Directors which meets monthly.
The SAC coaches 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 the pool will be time well spent. The coaches aim to provide the best opportunity for ALL of our athletes to grow and improve as well as to allow them to practice in groups with peers that are of the same relative age, maturity and ability levels. Coaches will place your child in the most appropriate training group when joining the program. SAC wants each child to feel successful in their practice group and the coaches will move swimmers to the next level only when they feel the swimmer is ready to succeed at that next level.
SAC swimmers compete in meets that are held locally, within Arizona, Regionally, Nationally and Internationally. We are sponsored by the City of Scottsdale and most SAC practices are conducted at Cactus Pool, located at the corner of North Scottsdale Road and Cactus Road. We are glad you have chosen competitive swimming as a sport and SAC for your child to be a member. We are proud of our team and each swimmer’s accomplishments. If you have any questions, feel free to talk with your swimmer’s coach, the head coach, or a board member.
