Lucas followed that swim with a new mark in the 9-10 boys 200 back with a 2:37.95. That time bettered Nathaniel Hartman's 2012 time of 2:38.77.

Spring/Summer Trophy League with CAT

Prospective Trophy League swimmers! Trophy League registration is currently
on hold during the COVID-19 closures. This section will be updated once we know when
we will be able to resume our programs.

Join us for fun, fitness, friends, and water safety

WHO CAN JOIN? Swimmers ages 5+ who are able to swim 25 yards of freestyle & backstroke and are comfortable in deep water can join our team! Swim meets are available but not required. We also offer Fun Meets during practice time to help get the kids comfortable with the process.

TRY US OUT! Trophy League registration starts April 1 and runs until August 14. We offer each swimmer a trial week to see if we are a good fit for you and your family. Just come to Osborn Aquatic Center any weekday during the school year, go to the deep end of the pool and ask to talk to a CAT coach.

3:30pm-4:30pm for ages 10 & Under
5:30pm-6:45pm for ages 11 to 14
3:30pm-5:00pm for ages 14+

WHAT IS THE PRACTICE COMMITMENT? Practices are offered everyday, but there is no minimum that you must attend. We limit our 10 & unders to 3 practices each week, and encourage our 11 & overs to do at least three. It is easy to work out a schedule that is compatible with other sports and activities.

WHAT IS THE COST? Trophy League is $425 if joining in April, $350 in May, $275 in June, and $200 in July. The lump sum cost includes monthly dues, pool rental fee for practices, USA Swimming fees, meet fees for the four Trophy League meets, a t-shirt, swim cap, end of season Trophy League party, and awards. High school aged swimmers who are not interested in Trophy League meets may join the team on a monthly basis, and should contact the Business Manager for cost information before registering.

HOW DO WE REGISTER? Online registration which was intended to open on March 20 has been delayed; please check back in the future for announcements about registration. Click on "Start Registration" and follow the simple steps. You may pay with credit card or check; if you choose the check option, please leave a check in the CAT dues box at Osborn, which is in the CAT Corner just to the left after you enter the lobby. As part of the registration process, you will choose a password which will allow you to access your CAT account on the website. This account can be used to review your invoices with the team as well as to sign up for meets. Any questions about registration or cost should be directed to our Business Manager, Rhonda Soule', at
