Three Rivers Aquatic Club (Fort Wayne, IN)
Three Rivers Aquatic Club (TRAC) was incorporated in the summer of 1999. Approximately thirty-five families joined together to form a private swim club who would train at the Helen P. Brown Natatorium. The club has grown to as large as 90 families and 150 swimmers. The Helen P. Brown Natatorium is a 43,000 square foot, state-of-the-art aquatic facility that features a 50-meter by 25-yard main pool and an additional small therapy pool, a diving well, locker rooms and shower facilities. A large mezzanine gives spectators a bird’s eye view of the swimmers below. The national award-winning design of the facility was completed in 1996 and was part of the renovation of South Side High School.
Philosophy TRAC believes lessons learned in the pool are lessons learned for life. Each swimmer is encouraged to cultivate competitive skills and sportsmanship in swimming. TRAC’s training philosophy builds solid character by promoting core values of honesty, respect, commitment, and self-discipline.
