The Mount Pleasant Swim Club and the LTP Racing Club will be merging this spring to form the South Carolina Swim Club, with former SwimMAC coach Pam Swander leading the brand-new program.
We reported yesterday on an e-mail from SwimMAC announcing Swander’s departure from the program this spring, and now the South Carolina Swim Club has confirmed that Swander will be heading up the newly-merged program.
Swander will serve as Head Coach and Club Director for South Carolina Swim Club, which will now serve about 500 swimmers – each of the two former clubs featured roughly 250 swimmers. The South Carolina Swim Club will span four different pools and should have a combined coaching staff of around 20.
Swander will take over the new position beginning on April 1. The South Carolina Swim Club released a statement from Swander on the new position:
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to move to the Charleston area to join one of the country’s up-and-coming programs,” said Swander. “I have had a remarkable and successful journey with SwimMAC that has made this new opportunity possible. I’m looking forward to joining the quality coaching staff, families, and swimmers at this club and working with everyone to build a championship program in Charleston.”
