About MAC

The Montour Aqua Club (MAC) is a private, non-profit, competitive swim club. We are part of the Western Central Pennsylvania Swim League (WCPSL) and Allegheny Mountain Swimming organization (AMS), which is under the USA Swimming umbrella.

Our sessions are broken up as follows:

  • Fall: September through December
  • Winter: January through March
  • Spring: April through June
  • Summer: Sessions are planned annually and typically run about 6-7 weeks.

The club has a parent-run Board of Directors. The Board governs the activities of the club and is bound by club by-laws. All officers are parent volunteers. Ideally we would like each position to serve 2 years. A new Board is elected each March.
