Welcome to the  Amador Swim Team. This handbook covers general information that will enable you to understand the way Amador Swim Team functions in itself and within the Northern California Swim League. This is not a complete list, but covers the highlights, bylaws, and policies of both organizations. A complete list of Team and League Bylaws and U.S. Swimming handbook can be obtained from the Team Secretary.


The Amador Swim Team (Team) was established in 1973 to provide area children the opportunity to swim competitively. The Team is a recreational team with primary emphasis on fun and fitness. We encourage swimming in a manner which provides recreation, self-discipline, good sportsmanship, and competition in the context of a "full family" experience for the swimmers. The Team is a non-profit organization which relies on a strong parent organization to operate the Team and raise financial support.

We provide excellent coaching, equipment, and facilities for as many as 200 swimmers in Amador County. A permanent home for equipment, trophies, and records will more firmly establish the Team as a valuable entity worthy of community support. A long term, committed partnership with a pool facility should allow an expansion of the rigorous practice schedules to improve the skill levels and swimming experience for the greatest number of swimmers. The involvement of parents as members of the Standing Committees and the Board together with involvement of the Amador County community are both important to the accomplishment of our Team's goals.

A. The Amador Swim Team is governed by a Board of Directors based on a set of by-laws which are available on request. We are also members of Northern California Swim League and by-laws and policies are adhered to.

B. Voting members of the Board of Directors include President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, League Representative, Volunteer Coordinator, Member at Large, and Computer Admin.

C. There will be at least one general membership meeting where Team business is discussed and the following year's Board is elected. One vote per family of a registered swimmer is allotted for balloting.
