Glenview Titan Aquatic Club  (GTAC)

The Glenview Titan Aquatic Club is a competitive year-round swim team for youth ages 7 to high school that swims out of Glenbrook South High School and Splash Landings. Our swimmers have achieved honors work at school as well as qualified and won in championship meets such as Regionals, Age Group State (formerly Junior Olympics) and Senior Championships. We welcome first time to experienced club swimmers to join us at the pool.

Our goal is to have a quality team, not just a large number of swimmers. As a result, we are selective but welcome all. Each season we assess your swimmer for not only their ability but we also look at their character, their willingness and desire to learn. Our swimmers receive personal coaching from USA Swimming accredited coaches. Most of the coaches grew up in the Glenview area and want to give back to their community.
