Membership Information
Online registration for the 2019-2020 Sudbury Swim Team season FOR OUR RETURNING MEMBERS opens from September 1st - 15th, 2019.  NEW swimmers wishing to tryout MUST register online beginning September 1st - 18th, 2019 AND MUST ATTEND mandatory tryouts on Sunday, September 22nd, 2019.  Swimmers must be between the ages of 7-18 (minimum grade level is 2nd grade) as of November 1, 2019 and must have completed the upper levels of Red Cross swimming instruction. Swimmers must also meet the minimum swim requirements to earn a place on the team, including diving off the block and swimming the four competitive strokes:  freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.  There is some leniency provided to younger swimmers who may not be completely proficient with their butterfly stroke or diving skills.
Priority is given to returning swimmers from the previous season.  Depending on available spaces within each age/gender category, we accept new swimmers based on our annual tryouts.  Swimmers must register each year.  We only accept as many swimmers in each group as our team can responsibly manage.
We ask that you seriously consider the team commitment of 20 weeks, minimum of 2 practices per week and a required attendance at 6 of the 9 dual meets, as well as required participation at our championships in March. We realize that there are unavoidable conflicts that will occur, but we expect that team spaces will be well used given the large number of children in our community who are waiting to swim. Thus, we ask each swimmer and their families to make this commitment so that the maximum number of children who want to swim, can take advantage of our program.
Fees for the 2019 - 2020 season are $625 per swimmer.  If your child is accepted on the Lincoln-Sudbury High School swim team, he/she may compete at meets for us at no charge, however, he/she must be able to commit to 5 of our 9 dual meets.  USA Swim Team members may swim for us at a reduced fee of $312.50 per season.  If a swimmer drops out of our program prior to November 4, 2019, all registration fees will be refunded at 75%, minus applicable processing fees.  Once practices commence on November 4, 2019, registration fees will be refunded at 50%, minus applicable processing fees, for all requests made on or before November 15th, 2019.  There are no refunds whatsoever after November 15th, 2019.
