Ready to join BLAST

(1) Prerequisites for trying out for the team are the completion of American Red Cross Level IV Swimming Lessons or equivalent.

(2) Tryouts can be scheduled at an agreed-upon time and place between coach and swimmer.  

(3) Once you have been invited to join the team, you will want to begin our registration process, which is online. Please select, “start registration” to begin the process. If you have been registered with USA Swimming in the past, you are considered a “returning” swimmer. This registration process will also require you to use a credit card to complete the process. Added to this will be a fee for the BLAST Annual Patron Fund.

(4) BLAST registration process involves consenting to the terms, policies, and procedures laid forth by the BLAST administration. When signing, please make sure you are aware of what is expected of you as a family. 

(5) When you bring your swimmer to their first official practice as a BLAST team member, please show your age group Coach a copy of the receipt from the registration process. This communicates to the Coach your swimmer is ready to start practices. 

Upon joining the team, each year you will need to register with USA Swimming as a member of BLAST.  There is a separate fee for registering with USA Swimming. You will also be required to pay the Annual Patron Fee, along with your USA Swim fee during the returning members' registration period each fall.

You will also be responsible for paying the team monthly dues as outlined here.
