Joining Coral Springs Swim Club CSSC in South Florida

Becoming part of CSSC is simple:

  • Decide you and your swimmer are interested
  • Complete the preregistration paperwork
  • Tryout
  • Complete the one week free trial without deciding to move on to something else
  • Finish registration

It seems too simple. Don't worry. Figuring out the fee structure will keep you occupied during your swimmer's one week trial period.

In a hurry to be off? Print out the current CSSC Brochure (updated 09/18/2018).


You will know if your and your swimmer are interested because swimming will already be a part of your life. Swimmers are expected to know all four strokes and be able to swim 50y/m (yards or meters).

Granted it might take a special proud parent's or coach's eye to determine exactly what stroke the younger swimmer is actually doing.

What is important is that the swimmer should have the bare fundamentals of swimming to the point where he or she is safe in the water.

The Preregistration Paperwork

Welcome to the dark side of swimming. Once the coach has determined which group would be right for your swimmer, he or she gets a one week free trial. To take advantage of the free trial, you must:

  • Complete the combined CSSC and the United States Swimming registration forms.
  • Attach a check for the amount of $170, payable to Coral Springs Swim Club.
  • Hand these to the coach or the registrar.

Now you're ready to enjoy the free trial week.

Note: Your check will be held uncashed for one week. If you choose NOT to join CSSC, call the registrar or Laura Azevedo at 954-340-5032 before the end of the trial week and she will destroy your check.

The Tryout

The tryout takes a few minutes and answers two questions:

  • Is the swimmer safe in the water?
  • Where would the swimmer best fit within the CSSC program?

The coach makes these determinations.

VERY IMPORTANT - Your swimmer should be prepared to swim:

·  swimsuit (no swimsuit, no swimming)

·  towel

·  cap (optional)

·  goggles (optional, highly recommended)

The Trial Week

The trial week is important. During that week you, your swimmer, the coaches and the team will become better acquainted.

If any adjustments are needed, such as moving your child to a different group, these will be made during this week.

Remember: Call our administrative assistant Laura Azevedo at 954-340-5032 before the end of the trial if you choose NOT to join CSSC and he will destroy your check. If you don't call, you will be making extra work for everyone, including yourself.
