CMAC is a year-round swim program. You may start at anytime throughout the year.  If your child passes the tryout and you are interested in joining, you will need to complete your full registration with our team electronically via this web site.  See more details below.

CMAC's model is based on a 3-tier progression from developmental groups, to performance groups, and finally the elite groups.

Costa Mesa Aquatics Club is part of USA Swimming and Southern California Swimming. As a member of CMAC most athletes are encouraged to compete in monthly meets on a regular basis. Our meet schedule is posted on our Events tab.

To schedule a tryout, please contact:

Do not register until AFTER tryout.  Following the tryout, your child's group coach will assign them a registration group.

Be sure to register your swimmer in the group as directed.
