North East Aquatics Team (NEAT) is a United States Swimming (USS) team. Our team is based on building upon the success of each swimmer as he/she advances from beginner swimmer through his/her platinum swimming career. We offer five levels of instruction within the team and strive to match age and swimmer development with the appropriate level of instruction. We emphasize the physical development, personal development, and stroke development of each swimmer in an atmosphere of fun, dedication, and competitive swimming.

Competitive swimming leads to the development of new friends, better levels of physical fitness, self-discipline, advanced organizational skills, and sportsmanship.
