Hillsborough Aquatic Club Swim Team


The Hillsborough Aquatic Club is a Swim Team program run by the Orange County Sportsplex that exploded onto the scene in 2011. Promoting healthy living, friendly competition, and teamwork, HAC Swim Team is an excellent activity for kids of all ages and abilities. Coaches stress hard work, but not at the expense of having fun! Groups range from beginners as young as 6 all the way up to High School aged swimmers. We encourage everyone who is new to the program to come to evaluations offered in early August and April/May each year. Or come on out to practice to see what it’s all about. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Swim team is a great way for your child to stay healthy – body, mind, and soul!
KidsPlex offers After School Care for HAC Swim Team participants. If using Orange Public Transportation or Sportsplex transportation, your child must be registered with KidsPlex After School Care.
