Welcome to the Berkeley Aquatic Club Electronic Registration platform for the upcoming 2018-19 swim season! This registration is for current swim team members only.

Deposit: Each returning swimmer is required to pay a $368 (including $68 annual USA Swimming registration) NON REFUNDABLE deposit, payable by credit card by July 8th, to secure his/her place for the 2018-2019 season. The deposit will be applied in full to your annual program fees. After July 8th, the initial registration will be closed and the coaches will update their rosters prior to Summer tryouts. We are not able to guarantee your spot after the deadline. A late fee of $25 per swimmer will be added for those who register after the July 8th early registration deadline and your swimmer may be required to try out again during summer tryouts.

  • Team Suit: This year's team suit is a new style and all new sizing from Speedo. Families must visit the Team Store to have their swimmers try on sample suits and place their suit order in person. An email will be sent in July when sample suits are available for try on and orders will be taken.

Juniors, Seniors $650

The Volunteer Hours Commitment (per family) for the 2018-19 Season:

Volunteering is an important part of life at BAC. Hourly requirements for 2018-2019 are outlined in chart below. Please note that we track hours worked by VOLUNTEER PERIOD: hours are fulfilled each period and then your balance resets to zero. Hours cannot be rolled over or combined. Detailed information on Volunteer Requirements can be found on the website under Parent Info>Volunteer Hours. 

All families should sign up for at least one Trained Volunteer Team with which they will fulfill the majority of their hours. This is particularly encouraged for Junior and Senior families.* During registration when asked to "Select Group" please choose your preferred job from the pull down menu. You can also select "Volunteer Jobs - Non-Trained" until you are ready to commit to a specific team. If you have two parents each with a trained job and would like to split hours, select one trained job during registration and email the second trained job to BSAcommunications@berkeleyaquaticclub.comFor a description of Trained and Non-Trained Jobs click here

**Unfulfilled volunteer hours will be billed at $35 per hour. The final numbers of hours are subject to change and may be increased or decreased if there are any substantial changes to the meets we are hosting.


Practice Schedule for 2018-19 Season will be similar to 2017-18. Please visit the Athlete Info. section of the website to review.
