Amherst Aquatic Club
Welcome friends, we hope you can join us for an informational meeting where we will discuss times, fees, next steps as well as answer any questions you may have. This meeting is for ANYONE interested in competitive swimming. Spread the word! 😉
Amherst Aquatics Club is a NEW USA Swim Team and, “promotes the culture of swimming by creating opportunities for swimmers and coaches of all backgrounds to participate and advance in the sport through teams, events and education.”
Amazing things are coming with this new organization. 🏊🏻♂️🏊♀️
Note: the South Lobby of Marion L. Steele High School is located off the parking lot behind the football field. When heading North on Washington Street, it is the first parking lot on your left.
Junior and Beginner’s Season will be for April & May and will allow swimmers to participate in USA meets in ADDITION to Amherst Summer Swim Season. This will NOT replace any component of Amherst Summer Swim rather it will complement it!
A new swim team is in its infancy stage of forming. The Amherst Aquatic Club (AAC) will be U.S.A. affiliated and will have a separate governing board than Amherst Summer Swim Team (ASST). AAC will be a separate entity from the ASST. As new information comes out, it’ll be shared by members of an AAC board.
From Jami L. Anderson, Administrative Assistant for the City of Amherst: If any swim team member(s) is interested in employment as lifeguards, please refer to the attachment for the application or stop at Amherst City Hall between 8:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday – Friday.
