In addition to raising money for the UVAC Scholarship Fund, this helps the club buy new essential equipment, cover meet costs and fund athlete travel.

The team donated $546 to the USA Swimming Foundation. The Foundation works to strengthen the sport of swimming by saving lives and building champions—in the pool and in life.

The UVAC Team swims at the White River Junction, VT location and practices at the Colby Sawyer pool in New London, NH as well. The team has 135 members from all over the Upper Valley including towns like Bridgewater, Grantham, Hartland , Hartford, Quechee, Reading and Woodstock.
