Suburban Aquatic League (SAL)
NAAC participates in the Suburban Aquatic League (SAL).
The Suburban Aquatic League is an organization of Age Group swimming and diving clubs in Bucks, Montgomery, and Delaware Counties, Pennsylvania (Suburban Philadelphia). Currently, the SAL is composed of more than 20 teams and is organized into four geographical divisions. The league sponsors a season of dual and championship meets, with dual meets generally beginning in early November, and the season ending with championship meets in February. All participating clubs field boys' and girls' swimming and diving teams. The league is run by parent volunteers. The mission of the SAL program is to develop skills in the sports of competitive swimming and diving; teach good sportsmanship; and provide a means of healthy self-expression for those participating.
