Open for New Members

Welcome to the Clemson Aquatic Team (CAT) electronic registration for the 2019-2020 swim season!  Founded in 1978, CAT is a year-round, parent owned swim team.  There are training groups for novice competitive swimmers, groups for swimmers with varying degrees of competitive swimming experience, and a US Masters Swimming training group for adults (fitness, triathletes, or competitive adult swimmers).  The team currently practices from September - July at Central Clemson Recreation Center (CCRC). 

Both returning swimmers and new swimmers must register through the online registration portal.   Please follow the instructions to register for the swim season. 

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.  If your child was a member of CAT last year, there is no need for a swimmer evaluation. Before the first practice, all new swimmers must provide a birth certificate (email to cat@clemsonaquaticteam.org).

New Swimmer Evaluation: We will hold evaluations Monday August 26, 2019 and Tuesday August 27, 2019, 5-6:30 pm (either day but not both). It is drop-in and the evaluations are first-come first serve, and take about 15 minutes in the water. Please have the child in a swim suit, with googles if you have them, and a towel.

After August 27, please contact Head Coach Jon Mengering at cat@clemsonaquaticteam.org to schedule new swimmer evaluation.


New Swimmer 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. Note: This does not mean your swim fees are prorated for the two weeks if you join.

We look forward to having you join the Clemson Aquatic Team and are excited for a great swim season!

Note: USA-S or USMS registered athletes from other teams who wish to train with CAT while in the Clemson area temporarily, may train a maximum of 15 days/year without joining CAT and paying swim fees.Visiting or Temporary Swimmers not registered with either USA-S or USMS must provide proof of registration with either organization prior to swimming with CAT.

If your swimmer has not yet been evaluated, please do not continue the registration process!
