Sonoma Sea Dragons Swimming

Our club is a USA year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability.

All of our coaches, as members of the American Swim Coaches Association, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.

The Sonoma Sea Dragons has a long history of excellence, that unfortunately saw a period of transition when their training site was no longer available back in 2005. Coach Jane, feeling a sense of need in the community, brought the team back in 2007, and they now train at the Sonoma Aquatic Club where she has continued to pour a great deal of love and dedication into bringing the team back to its once stellar state!

With a dedicated coaching staff focused on developing athletes that love the sport and who will stick with it for the long-haul, the Sea Dragons are on the road to excellence once again!


How to Join/What to Expect

If you are new to the team, contact the coaching staff via email to set up a time for an assessment of your potential swimmer. We will then place them in the appropriate group based on their experience and where their current skills and fitness best fit the team.

The practice schedule changes throughout the year and is found on the website under the RESOURCES section. This is where you will also find information about swim meets, as well as on the main page toward the bottom. This section also contains important information about our team expectations for both parents and athletes, parent guide, how to attend swim meets, and much more. This is a great resource for you and your swimmer(s).

All of the group requirements are also found through the main page under the SWIM GROUPS tab.

New athletes to the team will pay a yearly USA Swimming registration fee and their first month’s dues within the first week of joining the team. The coaches will guide you through this process.

The cost for each group is between $90 and $125/month and can be found on the current schedule in the resources section.
