Glacier Aquatic Club

Kalispell Aquatic Team (KATS), dba Glacier Aquatic Club (GAC) is a nonprofit,
parent board managed, community-based swim club. The club swims at two pools,
one located in Kalispell, MT, at Logan Health Fitness Center and the other in Whitefish,
MT, at The Wave. We practice year-round and participate in USA Swimming short
and long course competitions. GAC is open to swimmers of all ages and ability levels,
and athletes are encouraged to make swimming a consistent part of a healthy lifestyle.We rely on strong family participation, and team parents are expected to volunteer
for club duties and provide positive support to swimmers and coaches. GAC has been
operating in the Flathead Valley of Montana for more than 25 years. Glacier Aquatic
Club’s Mission is to develop and promote competitive swimming for all ages and
abilities. We aim to have a unique effect on encouraging a lifestyle of health and
fitness by developing athletes with high self-esteem, respect, and sportsmanship that
may better serve our sport, our community of the Flathead Valley, and the State of
Montana. We encourage swimmers to set challenging goals for themselves and for the
team and to see themselves as accountable for reaching those goals.
