FAQ

Does my swimmer need to tryout if we were part of the SeaWolves this summer? NO they can join up!  The coaching staff will help approve them for the program as long as they sign up during the SeaWolves registration period July 6th-July 19th.  If you are a SeaWolves swimmer you will need to try and sign up again during the open registration period later in August.

I was on another seasonal rec team this summer or am coming from swim lessons, do I need to have my swimmer tryout?  YES!  If they have competitive times, please provide those to the coaching staff during tryouts.  Tryout times will be posted on the CCA webpage and will be occurring through the middle 3 weeks of August.

Are there attendance requirements, and does my swimmer HAVE to attend meets? There are not attendance requirements, and they do NOT have to attend meets.  However, if the attendance and meets are a concern we feel our FALL TEAM program may be a better fit.  The objective of this program is to introduce swimmers the expectation of year-round USA Swimming.  Please note that if your swimmer(s) signs up for either the Spooktacular or Fall Team Invite meets there will be a requirement for families to volunteer in order for their swimmer to compete in the event.

What do they need for workouts? Swimmers need to come prepared in their suits, goggles, and CCA swim cap.  If they have their own swim equipment (kick board/fins) great bring them in! We do have that equipment they can borrow.

Are meet fees included? No- USA Swim meets require separate entry fees.  Coaches will help swimmers select and approve events for both meets if they choose to attend.  Spooktacular is a larger meet with up to 800 swimmers (split into an AM and PM session).  The Fall Team Invite is a short fun meet with a few of our local Fall Teams so the swimmers can finish the season strong!

If my swimmer wants to keep swimming can they join year-round after then end of this program? Absolutely!  Our staff will provide information to those interested on how to join CCA Swimming’s year-round program.
