Sheridan Swim Team: Membership Information

Who are we?

Sheridan Swim Team is a parent run age-group swim team.  We are a member of USA Swimming, and a 501c3 Non-Profit organization.  We have two seasons, a Short Course (yards) season throughout the Fall and Winter, and a Long Course (meters) season throughout the Spring and Summer.  We offer a wide variety of programming ranging from Learn-to-Swim for the brand new, to highly competitive for the experienced.  We also offer a wonderful River Country Summer League program, that serves as a great introduction to truly competitive swimming. 


New Families:

When a new family decides to join our program the first thing they must do is create an account.  Creating an account requires:  First and Last Name, Email, Address, and Phone Number.  Open Registration will take place prior to and during the first month of the SC and LC seasons.  Families will be able to register outside of these windows by contacting the Head Coach. 


Registering New Members:

Once a family has an account, they can register new members for the account.  Adding new members requires: First and Last Name, Middle Name (or initial), Gender, and Date of Birth.  Once registered, these new members will appear as “Pending Approval” until they have been assessed and appropriately placed by the Head Coach.
