All swimmers who have not been active with CAT in the previous year must be evaluated before registering for any age group training squad.

Minimum Swimming Requirements:  Your athlete must be able to swim at least 50 yards freestyle, 25 yards of one other stroke, and be comfortable in the water. 

Evaluations for 2019-2020 will take place on August 26 and August 27 at Central Clemson Rec from 5 pm - 6:30 pm - you need only attend once and this is a drop-in event. Each evaluation takes about 15 minutes and is first-come, first-served.

These evaluations are drop-in: the swimmer should bring or be in a swimming suit, and optionally with goggles and a swim cap if desired. The swimmer should have a towel for afterwards.

If you cannot attend these evaluation sessions, or you are interested on September 1 or later, please contact Head Coach Jon Mengering at cat@clemsonaquaticteam.org.

Head Coach Jon Mengering will place your child into one of the Age Group Training Squads at the Evaluation. Before your child can attend practice, he/she needs to be registered and bring a copy of the child's birth certificate to the coaches.

Two Week Trial:  If you or your child are wondering if swimming is for you and your family, we offer a 2-week trial with registration.  You must complete the entire registration process.  Choose to pay with a check and bring the check to the pool.  We will hold the check until you make your decision.  If you decide not to continue after 2 weeks, your check will be destroyed or returned without being deposited.

Please note that the two week trial is not a fee-free two weeks; you will be charged for an entire month if you do join CAT.
