The Mundelein Mustang Swim
Club (MMSC) is a swim team offering competitive, stroke
development, and social opportunities for children ages 6-18 in
Mundelein and surrounding communities. Children are required
to be evaluated by a coach to determine their readiness for
the team, and should have a desire to compete in age and
ability-appropriate swim meets before joining.
As a member of USA
Swimming, Inc. and Illinois Swimming, Inc., swimmers participate in
sanctioned meets throughout the season. Swimmers who achieve
USA Swimming time standards are eligible, and are encouraged to
compete in regional, state, zone, sectional and national level
