SAC FALL/WINTER REGISTRATION 2021-22
*Registration will begin August 9th 2021 for Returning Members and August 16th for New Members. Registration will close September 17th, however we fully expect our registration to sell out way before then.
Registration for SAC programs will take place securely online via Team Unify club management services (no mail-in form/checks). There will not be any in-person registration.
Swimming and diving registration will close once we hit our maximum capacity so please register as soon as possible.
SAC Fall/Winter Programs include:
SAL Swimming and/or Diving Season -Suburban Aquatic League (SAL) dual meet season for swimming and/or diving athletes; weekday evening practices including select Saturdays and Sundays. Starts in September, finishes early February. See Calendar for practice reference. Practices are NOT mandatory and we do understand that school life is hectic, however swimming and diving are sports that require consistency in the water.
Note: We are asking that all those athletes that are registered for the 2021-2022 SAL season to please participate in the SAL meets to continue our high level of success. Space is at a premium for those that will be competing.
SAC USA TEAM - USA Swimming membership (optional) includes additional USA Swimming meets in addition to our SAL meets. Training after the SAL season ends until the end of March will include a separate fee and registration(later in the winter). Travel meets and opportunities to participate in local Middle Atlantic competition (Junior Olympics, Silver Champs, Bronze Champs, etc)
What is USA Swimming:
USA swimming is an optional program geared for the athlete who really enjoys competitive swimming and wants to make an increase commitment to the sport.? You must be a USA swimming member to participate in USA meets. USA meets have become very popular and close quickly. This is why SAC is opening up our registration 2 months earlier this year.
SAC competes in the Middle Atlantic Region. Here is a link to Middle Atlantic Swimming
USA Swimming is the governing body of the Olympic team, etc? USA Swimming
SAC Pre-Team - The pre-team is designed for those athletes that still need to master all four strokes and not yet ready for competitive SAL swimming. The swimmer must be able to consistently do laps in the pool. These are not swim lessons! The team practices twice a week and will culminate in a Mini-Meet. Season lasts from November until mid-January. If your child HAS NOT competed on a summer or winter swim team before, but can swim freestyle , unassisted, this is the spot for them!
