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. 

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

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.
