Los Gatos Aquatics is a competitive Year- Round USA Swimming Team. Our goal is to help every swimmer develop a love for the sport of swimming, for our swimmers to be confident and independent, and to help swimmers understand, create, and reach personal goals. Our swim team has been recognized as a Level 1 Swim Team by USA Swimming. We encourage our Year-Round Swim Team Members to participate in the United States Swimming (USS) competition program where they will travel to various competitive meets within the Bay Area. Our Year-Round Swim Team steps up the competition from Summer Swim Team. We believe in well-balanced, challenging workouts that include technique, endurance, and strength building exercises. We believe that “fun” is what keeps swimmers happy and keeps them improving.

INFORMATION

A registration packet will be available at the Front Desk in March.  Only completed applications (full payment, Parent Job Registration & Waiver) will be accepted.

 

 

SIGN-UPS

Sign-ups are divided into two priority groups. All sign ups within each group are first come, first serve. We hope everyone who wishes to return will be able to do so. If the roster (130 swimmers) fills before you can register your child, your child will be placed on the alternates list. Alternates will train with the team and will attend all social functions, but will have second priority on meet sign-ups. The last day to drop from the team (with coach’s approval) and receive a full refund is two weeks after first day of practice.

PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS

swim-team-swimmerSwimmers are strongly encouraged to attend at least three practices per week for 10 and under age groups, and four practices per week for 11 and older age groups, as well as represent the team at all meets. Eligibility for our league Championship Meet requires that a swimmer swim in at least two (2) league meets during the current season.

 

MANDATORY PARENT MEETING

The numerous details of Swim Team will be discussed at the Mandatory Parent Meeting held the week prior to start of practice at 5:00 pm. Parents are required to work at all meets, including the Championship Meet. Parents will also be asked to donate an item, i.e. baked goods, to the team’s snack bar at home meets and the Championship Meet. Money earned from the snack-bar sales is used to purchase needed equipment for the team.

We also offer a Pre-Season Swim Team program.  It is a great opportunity for all swimmers to get a head start and improve their stroke technique before Summer Swim Team begins.  Please click here for information on this program.
