About Us

Friends' Central Aquatics offers swimmers of all levels the opportunity to pursue their interest in the sport. The Swim School introduces young people to swimming and focuses on developing proficiency in the four primary strokes. The Swim Team provides swimmers the chance to hone their skills while participating in the exciting world of competitive swimming. We strive to put every child's safety and health as our forefront in FCA as we strive to maintain FCA as a safe place for all swimmers.  All swimmers work at their own level of competency, and the staff strives to balance the demands of competitive training with attention to swimming as a lifelong source of pleasure.

FCA is a member of USA Swimming and competes in our Local Swimming Committee (LSC), Middle Atlantic Swimming Incorporated. The program has an excellent, dedicated staff, led by our FCA Director  Will Gallagher, Head Coach Jack Eichenlaub, and Head of Swim School, Bridget Brown.

FCA Vision Statement: A welcoming community where athletes are driven to achieve their full potential through dedication and teamwork.
