Chinook Aquatic Club has been training young people in healthy athletic competition since 1976. We take pride in the accomplishments of our swimmers who have gone on to win National and Olympic championships, but we also see the swimming experience as one which provides important life skills to all our members, regardless of age or ability. Goal setting, persistence, self-discipline and positive thinking are some of the attributes swimmers take with them into all aspects of their lives. Chinook training groups are organized by ability level so that swimmers develop skills at their own pace. Swim meets are organized throughout the year for ability levels, so that even novices can participate in the competitive experience. Chinook Aquatic Club is registered with United States Swimming, the governing body of competitive swimming, and its extensive Age Group program. We have workout pools in Bellevue and Renton, Washington.
