Winter 2022-2023 Swim Season


Welcome to South East Aquatics Registration for the Winter 22-23 Season!  We are looking forward to having your swimmers join us.

We are happy to provide numerous swim opportunities to athletes, including a pre-season and a regular season, a competition team and a developmental team, and a participant level for those wishing for more flexibility.

PreSeason Programming:
Our PreSeason runs from September 6th through November 2nd for our swimmers wanting to get a head start on the season.  This is an excellent way to get back into "swim shape". Cost of PreSeason is $250 for for all registration groups.  Registration for PreSeason is now closed.
 
Regular Season Programming:
Regular season practices begin on Monday, November 7th and continue through February 16th.
   

Competitive Practice Groups: For those who have at least one season of swim team under their belt and feel they are ready for a higher level of training.  Practice groups tend to be smaller, so coaches can focus more on fine tuning an athlete's technique.  No special invitation needed for this group.  If you feel your swimmer is ready, you are welcome to sign them up at this level.
