Competitive Swimming and Diving
UDAC believes that every child can achieve life-long success through aquatics. UDAC's team-oriented philosophy enables us to provide a nurturing environment for everyone, from novice to national qualifier. Our program of comprehensive skills instruction, along with multiple levels of competitive opportunities, encourages all of our athletes to pursue personal excellence through teamwork in the sports of competitive swimming and diving. UDAC is a member of the Suburban Aquatic League (SAL) and Middle Atlantic Swimming, offering local dual-meet age-group competition (Oct-Feb) plus year-round USA Swimming and AAU Diving training and competition at all levels. UDAC also offers a pre-team program for those children who want to participate in the competitive program, but first need additional work on their strokes, strength and/or stamina.
