Registration for the 2020 swim season is CLOSED. Please check back next year for swim team opportunities.
Swimming with the Cobras provides each child the opportunity to discover their potential, develop self-confidence and participate in a positive social experience. Through daily instructional practices and scheduled meets, we hope each swimmer will develop their swimming skills, learn good sportsmanship, make progress toward achieving their personal goals and most important of all, have fun.
Below you will find a brief overview for Eligibility, Registration, Pool Membership, Practices
Please read the Parent Handbook, available on www.gocobras.com for detailed information. The handbook can be found by clicking on DOCUMENTS.
Children ages 5 (must turn 5 on or before September 1, 2020, AND be entering kindergarten in the Fall 2020) through graduating seniors are eligible to become members of the Cobra Team. Swimmers compete in the following twelve separate gender (girls and boys) age groups: 5 & 6 yr. olds (freestyle and backstroke only), 7 & 8 yr olds, 9 & 10 yr olds, 11 & 12 yr olds, 13 & 14 yr olds and 15 through 18 yr olds. Swimmers age 7 and older swim all strokes.
The 2020 registration fee is $185 per swimmer for Cress Creek Commons Homeowners and members of the Cress Creek Commons Bathe and Racquet Club. The fee increases to $195 per swimmer after April 20th. The fee for non-homeowners and non-pool members is $285 per swimmer and increases to $295 after April 20th. All team registration forms are available on the website, www.gocobras.com.
Information on how to purchase an annual pool membership is also available at www.cresscreekcommons.com. There is also a pool membership application form available on the team website under the Documents tab.
Your team registration fee pays for Naperville Swim Conference fees, insurance, ribbons, team equipment costs, some social activities, coaches' salaries and pool maintenance & repair. Revenue from concessions and Sponsorships also helps to cover the costs of running the team. The Cobras Swim Team, not the Commons, is responsible for purchasing and maintaining all swim team related equipment which includes starting blocks, lane lines, computers, stop watches, bull horns, electronic starter, backstroke flags, kick boards, and much more.
Swimmers whose families are not members of the Cress Creek Commons Pool are not allowed any additional usage of the pool beyond their morning practice periods, swim meets and team social events. However, for an annual fee, non-residents of Cress Creek Commons can join the pool for the season. See the website www.cresscreekcommons.com for more pool membership information. There is also a pool membership application form available on the team website under the Documents tab.
The only time a swimmer will be allowed to change practice times is with Head Coach approval. The pool is cleaned every Wednesday morning so practice times will be later every Wednesday.
