Woodland Swim Team

 Outreach  Program

Outreach membership offers qualified individuals the opportunity to become a USA Swimming year-round athlete member at a reduced fee. The goal is to provide opportunities in swimming to under-represented and/or economically disadvantaged youth.

Outreach Athlete membership is available to qualified Swimming athletes in accordance with USA Swimming guidelines. The purpose is to make membership available to athletes who might otherwise not be able to afford regular membership. The current USA Swimming Outreach Athlete membership fee is $5.00 and the Sierra Nevada Swimming fee is $3.00.

Other than the membership fee, an Outreach Athlete member is not distinguishable from an Athlete member.

Applicants for Outreach Membership must be eligible for food stamps, eligible for free or reduced price school lunch programs, or eligible for Section 8 Public Housing. The athlete will provide a photocopy of an approved application for one of the programs with a 2016 Outreach Membership Application. The athlete’s club shall submit the application for membership, whether as a new or renewed member, to Sierra Nevada Swimming together with a copy of the documentation proving eligibility for participation in the Outreach Program.
