All groups for our Spring Session are CLOSED.
Albright Aquatic Club (AAC) is a year-round competitive age group swimming club that participates as part of the United States Swimming Association. Our goal at Albright Aquatic Club is to provide a fun, safe and educational environment for our swimmers. We enthusiastically embrace the opportunity to aid in the development of the swimmer’s self confidence and self-esteem. As a part of our commitment to our swimmers, we offer a wide variety of training options with a well-trained and experienced staff.
The Albright Aquatic Club Program consists of four phases and includes a Fall Session, Winter Session, Spring Session, and Summer Session. The Fall Session typically begins the Tuesday after Labor Day and runs for six weeks. This session is designed to begin preparations for the USA Swimming Middle Atlantic Short Course Swimming Season. This session is also open to swimmers who will not participate with us during the USA Swimming competitive season on an openings available basis.
The Winter Session is our primary competitive session. AAC competes in a wide range of USA Swimming events including regional invitational meets as well as dual meets with other local USA Swimming clubs. This season begins immediately after the Fall Session and runs through late March or early April, depending on when the swimmer's last competitive meet is scheduled.
The Spring Session typically begins around the middle of April and runs for six weeks through the end of May. This session is intended to prepare swimmers for the USA Swimming Middle Atlantic Long Course Swimming Season. This session is also open to swimmers who did not compete with the club during the winter session on an openings available basis.
Our Summer Session runs for 10 weeks from the first week of June through August. This session is open to AAC registered USA swimmers only and is designed for those who want to compete during the USA's summer long course season.
AAC has a variety of training groups available for swimmers of differing abilities and interests.
Mini Cubs: For 8 and Under Swimmers. This group practices on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 6 PM to 7 PM. Swimmers in this group are expected to be able to swim 25 yards of any two strokes. (This group is not a swim lesson program and swimmers must be able to meet minimum expectations set by the coaching staff.)
Mighty Cubs: This group is typically for 9-10 and 11-12 age swimmers but can also include older swimmers who are new to competitive swimming. Swimmers can practice up to FIVE times per week. This group practices Monday through Friday from 6 PM to 7 PM.
Lions: This group is typically for more developed 11-12 and 13-14 age swimmers. Swimmers can practice up to SIX times per week. This group practices Monday through Friday from 7 PM to 8:30 PM and on Saturday from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM.
Pride: This group is reserved for our most advanced swimmers and entry into this group is determined solely by the coaching staff. Swimmers can practice up to SIX times a week. This group practices Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7 PM to 9 PM, Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 7:30 AM to 9 AM. Admission into this practice group is at the discretion of the Coaching Staff.
High School Swimmers: AAC also offers supplemental practice sessions for swimmers who will primarily practice with their High School team but remain interested in competing with AAC throughout the Middle Atlantic Swimming Season. Swimmers in this program practice with AAC full time up to the start of the High School season in November, can supplement high school team practice during the season, and return to AAC at the completion of the High School season and train for competition at Junior Olympics or Senior Championships. Our High School program also includes the spring session as well.
