Mercersburg Swim Clinics are dedicated to improving your technique and helping you develop as a swimmer both inside and outside of the pool.  Mercersburg Academy’s storied aquatics program has produced over 30 Olympians and brings a tradition of excellence to their summer program.

The primary aim of Mercersburg Swim Clinics is to provide an experience that teaches swimmers the most innovative techniques available, while having fun. The philosophy is simple. Swimmers do not just compile distance, but rather work on improvements in starting, turning, and stroke techniques.

Mercersburg Swim Clinics participants stay in Mercersburg Academy’s state of the art residence halls that are recently renovated, air conditioned with carpeted hallways and have bathrooms on every hall with individual shower stalls. The swimmer to staff ratio is around 5 to 1 and coaches and instructors are current and former college swimmers or Mercersburg Academy graduates with swimming experience.

    • 24 Olympians who have earned 11 medals, (including four golds) representing the USA and 11 other countries
    • 243 High School All-Americans since 1935
    • 9 National High School/Interscholastic team championships

Over the last several years, alumni have gone on to compete at Amherst, Army, Bates, Boston University, Bucknell, Florida State, Lehigh, Navy, NYU, Pittsburgh, USC, St. Francis (N.Y.), Rice, Texas A&M, Williams, and Trinity (Texas).

  • Mercersburg’s swimmers and divers train and compete in the Flanagan Pool, a nine-lane, 25-yard facility that sports seating for 500 spectators, a Colorado Timing system, and an underwater video recording room. Dry-land training occurs in the McDowell Fitness Center which features 6,000 square feet of contemporary equipment and programming.

Construction is underway on Mercersburg Academy’s Lloyd Aquatic Center, which is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2019–2020 academic year, available to summer programs during the 2020 summer!
