The swimmer must swim continuously every year to remain eligible. Any siblings of the swimmer will become eligible to swim as a legacy swimmer.
    • Special Circumstances related to eligibility requirements will require review and approval by the board.


Swimmers must have approved membership with the Coves Swim Team and meet the eligibility requirements stated above.

Full payment of homeowner association dues, swim team fees and a current USA Swimming membership are required before a new or returning swimmer can practice or participate on the swim team.

A. NEW SWIMMERS and ALL 8 & UNDER SWIMMERS must demonstrate their ability to swim. The coach will set a date in which the swimmer will be required to swim the width of the deep-end of the pool. This requirement is necessary for the safety of the swimmer. The coach, after evaluating the swimmer’s ability, will make a recommendation to the board regarding their membership.  If any swimmer does not fulfill the requirements, all swim team fees (not including USA Swimming or Northland Conference fees) will be refunded by the treasurer.
