In 1964 a group of swimming officials and coaches got together to form a new club.
The club became known as St Patrick’s Amateur Swimming Association.
It would be made open to any person who wished to join. This philosophy of inclusion is still part of our mission statement today.
At the start of the 2008/09 Summer Season the club changed it's name to Launceston Aquatic Club (LAC) to better reflect it’s location and membership base.
