Welcome to the Aptos Cabrillo Swim Club, ACSC THUNDER! We are one of 120 swim clubs that make up Pacific Swimming which is the third-largest regional association under our governing body, USA Swimming. All of our coaches are certified under USA Swimming and attend annual seminars and workshops geared towards age group and senior swimming.

ACSC’s mantra of “Building Strong Minds and Healthy Bodies in a Caring Environment,” requires hard work and discipline. Traits that support a healthy attitude whether you come in first or last in a race. Fortunately, one of the side effects of working hard is swimming fast and having fun! Each child develops at different rates, but we adults, coaches, and parents, can support this difference by following some basic recommendations below. Here at ACSC, we strive to develop conscientious swimmers that are contributors to our team and to the community as a whole.

Our team offers the following levels of instructions year-round: Swim Lessons, Pre-Competition, and Competitive team with practice locations at Simpkins Swim Center in Santa Cruz, Cabrillo College Pool in Aptos, and Aptos High School Pool.
