Registration Process

All ECA registration is completed on-line through our website and if possible should be completed before attending an ECA tryout.  Use the Join ECA! link to create an account.  Choose the site your swimmer will participate with and choose "New to East Carolina Aquatics" when asked to select a group.  You will not be charged anything until your swimmer has completed a tryout for group placement.   If your swimmer has completed a tryout before you register electronically, you can choose their assigned group during registration.  Swimmers will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.

Proof of Age

A copy of your swimmer’s birth certificate is required by US Swimming to complete your swimmer's registration.  Please bring a paper copy at the time of the swim test, or an electronic copy in the form of a scan or picture can be emailed to General Manager Scott Pake.  Alternatively, you can fill out the NC Swimming Proof of Age Form.  


The Board of Directors is in the process of setting fees for 2019-2020. 

Registration Fee: ECA's registration covers membership to US Swimming, a swim cap, and a t-shirt.  This fee is collected during registration.  Registration is fees will be determined by group placement.  Most beginner level swimmers will pay a smaller registration fee, which includes participation in 2 sanctioned meets.  Intermediate and advanced groups will pay the full registration fee. 

Monthly Dues: Monthly dues depend on group and site.  For more information on group pricing see the contact list below.  

Additional Fees: Additional costs throughout the year include meet registration fees, which range from free to $85, equipment costs (goggles, etc), and team suit orders.  Team suits are required for competition and will cost will range from $35-$65.  Non-competitive swimmers are not required to purchase a suit and meets are always optional.  


The tryout is an evaluation process that generally involves a one-on-one interaction between a coach and your swimmer to ensure proper group placement. Generally, if your swimmer can swim across the pool without stopping, there is a place for them within our system. Swimmers must bring swim suit and goggles. To schedule a tryout, please contact Scott Pake​.
