Joining the Team
We’d love to have you join us! Here are the details you need:
First, schedule a tryout by emailing us at SeniorCoach@westsideaquaducks.com. Tryouts are our way of evaluating your swimming skills and comfort level in the water. After your tryout, you’ll be placed in the Swim Group that best suits your skill level.
Next, visit our Documents page and download our 2017-2018 New Member Registration Packet, the 2018 Photo Release, and the 2018 Medical Form. Complete all of these forms and mail them to Westside Aquaducks, P.O. Box 1084, Petaluma, CA 94953 before you attend your first practice. Along with your paperwork, you will need to include a payment for one month’s dues, your family’s annual membership fee, and your Pacific Swimming registration fee (see Fees, below). Once we’ve received your paperwork, you will receive information via email about how to log into your new account on our website and set up your automatic payment plan. Once that's complete, you are welcome to begin swimming with our team! You'll also want to download and read our Parent-Swimmer Handbook. It'll answer lots of your questions.

*If your family has more than one swimmer, your second and subsequent swimmers receive a 15% discount on monthly dues. If you are joining on or after the 15th of the month, your dues will be prorated by 50%. All other regular fees apply.
Annual Membership Fee
This $75.00 fee is paid once a year per family. If you join the team after August 1, the fee is prorated to $40.00.
Pacific Swimming Registration Fee
This $73.00 fee is paid once a year per swimmer. Existing team members are billed in October of each year for the following year’s Pacific Swimming registration.
We understand that occasionally there are circumstances which might challenge a family’s ability to cover its regular expenses. We have four scholarships available at any given time. A scholarship may cover up to 75% of a swimmer’s dues for up to six months. To apply for a scholarship, simply e-mail our Board of Directors (firstname.lastname@example.org) and explain your circumstances. Qualifications include an account that is current (paid in full); regular attendance and an appropriate attitude at practices; and regular fulfillment of volunteer service to the team. The Board will review your request at its next meeting and will notify you immediately thereafter.
