Established in 1968, the North Baltimore Aquatic Club continues to do what it does best — provide quality instruction for swimmers and parents, and produce outstanding young men and women. NBAC has developed 11 Olympic athletes, who have won a total of 26 Gold, 5 Silver and 6 Bronze medals in the Olympic Games. World, American, and National Age Group Records in addition to hundreds of World and National Rankings, are the product of North Baltimore’s combination of creative imagination and hard work. NBAC is the only USA Swimming club to achieve gold medal ranking every year since the inception of the Club Excellence Program in 2002 and is a member of the inaugural Podium Club. NBAC graduates have attended prestigious universities and have found considerable success in their post swimming careers. All money raised by this event supports the NBAC Endowment Fund (501c3).
