Membership Requirements:

In 2019,  if your child is 6 years old or younger, as of June 1, 2019, they must be on the waitlist to have a chance to join the Aqua Bears.  We will contact swimmers ages 5-6 for a swim evaluation.  The Aqua Bears will have open online enrollment for new 7-18 year old swimmers, after priority registration for returning/sibling swimmers.  More information will be available about the open online registration for 2019 on our website March 1, 2019.

Anyone may join the Aqua Bears swim team, provided there is space available in the appropriate age group(s). Swim team members must pay a family team fee and a swimmer fee.  In addition, we require team service hours from each family, each season.  The swimmers and parents must fulfill the obligations described in the Team Service Hour page for the return of the volunteer deposit.

There are no "try-outs" for the team. However, for safety reasons, we have set forth the following guidelines. To be an Aqua Bear, a swimmer must be able to swim freestyle with side breathing across the pool without stopping or assistance (preferably 2 official swim strokes for 9+ year olds).  We also have an Aqua Cub program which is reserved for younger children ages 4 to 6 who do not yet swim well.  In order to be an Aqua Cub, a swimmer must be comfortable in the water. They must be able to hold onto the wall unassisted while they wait their turn, they must be able to push off of the wall and torpedo 5 yards to a coach, and they must be able to hold onto a kickboard and kick the length of the pool.  Children ages 6 and under will be evaluated by the coaches or board members to determine placement as an Aqua Cub or Aqua Bear.
