2015-2016 Registration Information

ECA is no longer accepting registrations for the 2015-16 swim year. We will have information posted for the new season soon. We look forward to working with your swimmers! Please contact Scott Pake with any questions at (252) 945-8400. 

Registration Process

All ECA registration is completed on-line through our website and should be completed before attending an ECA tryout. A paper copy of your swimmer’s birth certificate is required at the time of the swim test. A link will be posted on this page when registration opens. Then follow the process for setting up an account as a new swimmer. There is a $120 registration fee for all swimmers that covers membership to US Swimming. Swimmers will be signed-up on a first come, first serve basis.


The tryout is an evaluation process that generally involves a one-on-one interaction between a coach and your swimmer and ensures proper group placement. Generally, if your swimmer can swim across the pool without stopping, there is a place for them within our system. Swimmers must bring swim suit and goggles. Dates and times for each site will be posted here.
