Injury Prevention and Mobility

Below are just a few of the many resouces available to aid your swimmer. If your child complains of a nagging shoulder-- take it seriously. Sometimes a swimmer may just need rest. Other times it could be a sign of something more involved. Remember, early diagnosis and prevention can save weeks of recovery and time missed.

If you are looking to tryout for the team please call us at (661) 388-5301 and we will schedule your evaluation.

To become officially registered with the TEAM all required Forms and Code of Conducts must be completed through the paperless registration process. These forms are only accesible after you have become and Account Member. To become and Account Member the athlete must complete the USA Swimming Athlete Membership form and associated fees. From which point the Family's Account can be built on the TEAM website and the Paperless Registration process can begin.

General:

There is so much to learn in the sport of swimming. In fact, not unlike other sports, swimming has its own lingo. You can find a glossary of terms in the resource button. Rule One-- don't feel overwhelmed by the sport. There are a few basics, such as training gear which can all be found in the Group & Schedule Tab. 

Paseo Aquatics families can do all of their swim shopping locally at Conejo Swimworks in Santa Clarita. Everything from practice suits to goggles-- even Paseo Aquatics gear-- can be purchased there. You can also find a lot of these items online at Amazon.

We generally carry Paseo Aquatics swim caps in stock. Black and White caps are available for all group levels. Colored caps denote achieved times (i.e. Gold Caps = Championship Cuts; Blue Caps = Far Western Cuts, etc), 2-3 times a year we will take orders for customized caps which have your names on the sides.

Team warm-ups are available through Speedo, with whom Paseo Aquatics has a sponsorship deal. Warm up orders are placed twice per year. Conejo Swimworks will size the athletes to confirm proper fit and customization. 

Spirit wear is also available for swimmers and family members. Some items are kept in stock. Additional orders can be placed with Denise Bartlette ([email protected])

Hammerhead Caps are required for all athletes in the WHITE PYRAMID (Discovery through Advanced). Paseo Aquatics sells these caps for $30.00 each. All swimmers will be provided a cap and their account billed accordingly.
