Registration for the 2018 swim season will open in March, 2018. Please click on Registration Info tab above to get started on/after March 1st.
Swimming with the Cobras provides each child the opportunity to discover their potential, develop self-confidence and participate in a positive social experience. Through daily instructional practices and scheduled meets, we hope each swimmer will develop their swimming skills, learn good sportsmanship, make progress toward achieving their personal goals and most important of all, have fun.
Below you will find a brief overview for Eligibility, Registration, Pool Membership, Practices

The fee for non-homeowners and non-pool members is $275 per swimmer and increases to $285 after April 11th. All team registration forms are available on the website, www.gocobras.com.
Information on how to purchase an annual pool membership is also available at www.cresscreekcommons.com. There is also a pool membership application form available on the team website under the Documents tab.
Your team registration fee pays for Naperville Swim Conference fees, insurance, ribbons, team equipment costs, some social activities, coaches' salaries and pool maintenance & repair. Revenue from concessions and Sponsorships also helps to cover the costs of running the team. The Cobras Swim Team, not the Commons, is responsible for purchasing and maintaining all swim team related equipment which includes starting blocks, lane lines, computers, stop watches, bull horns, electronic starter, backstroke flags, kick boards, and much more.
Swimmers whose families are not members of the Cress Creek Commons Pool are not allowed any additional usage of the pool beyond their morning practice periods, swim meets and team social events. However, for an annual fee, non-residents of Cress Creek Commons can join the pool for the season. See the website www.cresscreekcommons.com for more pool membership information. There is also a pool membership application form available on the team website under the Documents tab.
