Seal Beach, CA- October 14, 2020- TYR Sport is proud to announce that it has been selected as the exclusive swimwear supplier for SwimMac Carolina.
Founded by five families in 1977, SwimMAC has always been tuned into the local community. Within two years of its onset, the MAC program grew to 60 swimmers and continued to grow dramatically over the next several years. Between 1980 and 1985, the MAC family included more than 300 competitive swimmers, and developed into one of the largest learn-to-swim programs in the country. Continued growth and partnership within the local community has allowed the program to expand into the seven-facility network and ten-thousand member organization it is today.
SwimMAC Carolina has a long history of excellence both in and out of the pool. Named as one of the top swim clubs in the nation for the past decade by USA Swimming through its Club Excellence program, SwimMac is very proud of its student-athletes, who consistently make up one of the largest contingencies on USA Swimming’s annual Scholastic All-America Team. SwimMAC accumulated the largest number of USA Swimming Scholastic All-American athletes in the country in 2020, and many of their swimmers have gone on to be highly regarded recruits sought out by colleges across the country.
“SwimMAC is excited about our new partnership with TYR as the interactions to date have been just that, a partnership,” said head coach Eric Lane. “The customer service and relationships with various parts of our program have been top-notch. TYR’s commitment to anticipating our swimmers' needs is evident by the fabrics they choose, the quality of their apparel materials, and the tech suit patterns they produce, that are both comfortable and technologically advanced.”
“SwimMAC has an incredible history, not only for the success of its competitive teams, but also for its ability to serve the local community with its invaluable learn-to-swim programming,” began Matt DiLorenzo, Chief Executive Officer of TYR Sport. “Their mission to empower young people to be champions in life through excellence in swimming, aligns with our core company values.”
Named for TYR, the Norse god of warriors, our company is committed to cultivating a culture of greatness, both in and out of the water. Through vision and American ingenuity, we have become a brand synonymous with the athlete.
From the planning stages to the production floor, everything we do revolves around synthesizing creativity, experience and competition. For us, engineering the most advanced performance products is more than just a goal, it’s a requirement.
