The Nonprofit Triangle Aquatic Center’s mission is to build and operate public aquatic facilities for the health, safety, recreation and competition needs of Triangle citizens and aquatic organizations. In pursuit of this mission, and to support more public access to swimming programs, TAC has created four (4) scholarships to provide more opportunity and affordable access to swimming programs for the children of the Triangle.
