Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Fitness and Competitive Swimming Training

Structured, coached 90 minute practices offered seven days a week at multiple pools in the D.C. area

Population(s) Served

DCAC will provide scholarships to DCAC swimmers who would otherwise be burdened by the cost of pool dues

Population(s) Served

DCAC will award an undetermined number of scholarships to DCAC swimmers to aid in offsetting expenses for swimmers competing in the International Gay & Lesbian Aquatics Championships and/or Gay Games.

Population(s) Served

To honor the memory of the mothers of two long time DCAC members. The Marcay Dickens and Joan Dever Scholarship Fund encourages DCAC swimmers over the age of 65 to compete in the annual IGLA competition and to offset costs associated in participation.

Population(s) Served

Swim for Life is an open water swim competition and fundraising event to benefit local watershed organizations that advocate for clean, local waters as well as Washington, DC-area HIV/AIDS nonprofit organizations

Sanctioned each year by United States Masters Swimming, Swim for Life begins and ends at Rolph's Wharf on the Chester River, which is one of the Chesapeake Bay's most beautiful tributaries. Athletes have the choice of swimming 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 miles. We also offer a 2.4 Mile Triathlon Challenge swim.

Population(s) Served

Swimmers who are under the age of 30 will receive a quarterly reduction in the cost of their pool dues. The mission of the program is to engage and retain younger swimmers who may be financially burdened by large pool dues fees.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are hoping to offer an affordable option for adults in the D.C. metro area to reap the benefits of swimming, whether it be for fitness or competition.

We are looking for sponsors of the team that will allow us reduce the costs of membership.

Our board of directors have established fundraising events and have solicited local businesses. We have also requested a programmatic partnership with D.C. Department of Parks & Recreation. It is a slow moving process.

After a large loss for fiscal year 2017, we tightened up our controls and raised our fundraising efforts. We will still be at a loss in 2018 and are looking for funding opportunities so that pool dues are not increased. That would create a barrier to our financially challenged members.
