The MAC Swim and Dive Team coaches turn belly flops into graceful dives and water wing dependents into avid swimmers.
The Missouri Athletic Club's swim and dive programs are touted as two of the best in St. Louis because of the professional coaching staff and the numerous fun activities offered to swimmers and divers throughout the season in addition to practices and meets. During practice, the coach to swimmer ratio is one to eight so children are watched closely while in the pool and provided with training specific to their skills and abilities. Youth enrolled in the swim and dive program have fun with others their own age, become more comfortable in the water, participate in healthy physical activity and competitions.
