USA Swimming Registration

In the past, WRA registered athletes when they attended their first "away" (non-home) meet. USA Swimming has recently rolled out a new, online registration system and parents are now required to complete the separate USA Swimming registration for their athletes. 

  • An email has been sent to all Silver, Gold, and Platinum swimmers, with a link to the registration site for 2023. An email will be sent to all Bronze and Blue swimmers prior to attending their first away meet of 2023.

A Note from the Coach: 

We are in the midst of the time of year when, with holidays, exams, and class projects, we have to exercise our time management skills and purpose to be consistent in our training in order to achieve our goals. 

For those swimmers who will be going out of town over the holidays, it is important to maintain your fitness and conditioning level - anything you can do to stay active will benefit the rest of your season. If you can find a pool to swim laps in, or a local USA swim team to practice with, that would be ideal.

The championship part of our season is just around the corner and, with that in mind, we need to stay focused on the goals we set at the beginning of the season.

At this point in the season, we are continuing to focus on:

  • Being consistent in practice attendance
  • Improving technique and building endurance through the effort put forth in practice
  • Gaining race experience and developing racing strategies through meet participation
  • Having a positive attitude at all times and learning to overcome adversity

Remember, more details on our training cycles can be found on our website under Team resources, or by clicking here.
