Easton Aquatic Club was (re)founded in 2010 by Ed Black. Remembering all the great summers he had spent growing up in Easton and competing in the summer league at Heil Pool, Coach Ed, with the help of his son Chris, and brother Joe, put together a small team and joined the Penn Jersey Summer League (the premier summer swim league in the Lehigh Valley).
The team has changed a lot since then. They won league championships in 2012, 2015, & 2016. Coaches have changed, including Coach Ed who retired in 2016. Hundreds of young swimmers have come through the program including many, junior Olympians, PIAA state swimmers NCAA conference champs, and an Olympic trial qualifier. What remains is something that was instilled early on: Believe, Commit, Succeed. Those words not only build strong swimmers but strong character.
As always the club, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, continues to provide area children an opportunity to enhance their swimming ability through application of the latest technique while promoting core values of education, character, leadership and competition.
