Participation in New Swimmer Evaluations does not guarantee placement on the San Ramon Aquacats Swim Team. All swimmers participating in the New Swimmer Evaluations will be notified by e-mail, of their status with the team by our registrar.
Several age groups are full with returning swimmers, therefore we may only have a few spots available in your child's age group. You will be notified if your swimmer is put on a waiting list for their age group.
Swimmers invited or accepted to the team will receive a pass word to log-in to the team web-site and proceed with the registration process. Swimmers invited to the team must register between the specified time slot given by the registrar or their spot on the team will be given to the next swimmer on the waiting list.

This program is designed for water safe swimmers ages 3 to 8 where Group 1 will encompass swimmers age 3 to 6 and Group 2 will encompass swimmers age 7 to 8. Swimmers must be able to swim 15 feet unassisted and evaluated prior to registration. This is a non-competitive program, so swimmers will not be participating in the summer league meets. At our last home meet or on the final day of practice, all Kitten swimmers will be invited to swim in a 25 yard freestyle event (coaches can be in the water to help assist if needed) for their graduation. Program will start on June 4, 2018 and will run for 8 weeks. Swimmers are also invited to any team social events. Cost for the program is $325.00 and there are no required volunteer hours. Completion of the program will also give the swimmer priority registration for the 2019 season.
