What is USA Swimming?????
USA swimming is an optional program geared for the athlete who really enjoys competitve swimming and wants to make an increase commitment to the sport. SAC USA Swimming can be compared to a "travel team" in other youth sports. You must be a USA swimming member to participate in USA meets. USA meets are very popular and close quickly.
SAC competes in the Middle Atlantic Region. Here is a link to Middle Atlantic Swimming
USA Swimming is the governing body of our Olympic team, Junior National team, etc? USA Swimming
Cost of USA Swimming:
The cost to be a USA swimming member is $80 (September 2019- september 2020). The $80 icludes your insurance and SPLASH magazine subscription. In addition, there is the coaching/training fee of $210 for the month of February and March. You can either pay the base membership fee now $80 and be billed the remainder after the SAL season is over or pay in full now ($280 includes $10 savings) and not be billed in January.
Why should I register and pay now?
As stated above, USA meets fill very quickly so we need to send entries in before the meet becomes too full and they close.
USA swimmers will be coached through the SAL season (end of January) as part of the payment to participate in SAC winter swimming. Once the SAL season is over there will be a winter session(February/March) and spring/summer session (May/June) leading up to a long course meet in mid-June. The charge for the additional coaching time is $210/ session. $210 for winter training session and $210 for spring/summer training session(there will be a separate optional registration in the spring).
Where do I signup for these USA meets?
SAC USA swimmers will compete in additional meets about once a month through June. (They will be listed on the events tab of our web site) Swimmers sign up for meets and choose their own events. There is an event entry fee charged by the host club. There is no requirement that you must participate in USA meets. Also a swimmer can choose to swim in additional USA meets that SAC is not attending as a group. USA meets are listed on the USA Swimming (mid Atlantic) web site.
A swimmer must be aged 8 or older and swim a 25 free in under 20 seconds.
