Swim & Dive Teams

The Missouri Athletic Club has two pools that are utilized throughout the year for private and group swim and dive lessons and clinics as well as practice and meets during swim season.

Teams and Registration Info


Gateway Swim and Dive League dates and times will be announced once St. Louis County releases the summer's updated protocols for pools and youth sports. Until this time, we are planning to participate in the league. If Gateway does not host summer league, the MAC will prepare their own swim program for MAC children.


The Penguins Swim Team is comprised of registered youth ages 5-18 who engage in practices and swim meets. Head Coach, Lauren Fonseca oversees a staff of coaches who provide age specific training.


The Puffin Pre-team is for younger swimmers (ages 3-5) who cannot yet swim the full length of the pool. The six-week Puffin Pre-team season offers practice two or three days a week.


Register children ages 5-18 for the MAC’s Dive Team. Practices are Monday-Friday mornings. Meets occur on Saturday mornings starting at 9 a.m. There are typically three dive meets and one dive conference meet.

For all participants returning from the 2019 team (there was no 2020 team), registration opened Monday, April 5. All 2019 Penguin and Puffin swim team members and their siblings will be guaranteed a spot on the 2021 team if registered before open enrollment begins on May 3. For new families, registration opens May 3 and ends on May 17.
