About South Bay Aquatics

South Bay Aquatics (SBA) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to promoting the sport of swimming in Southern San Diego County. It was established in 2001 when the teams of Chula Vista Aquatics Association, National City Swim Club and Eastlake Swim Team merged to become one of the strongest swim teams in the county. Together they provide over 50 years of swimming excellence in the South Bay Communities of Chula Vista, National City, Eastlake, Bonita, Rolling Hills Ranch and other surrounding areas.

South Bay Aquatics is currently seeking qualified individuals to augment our existing coaching staff. Contact [email protected] for more information.

SBA’s swim program groups its members based on ability with age taken into consideration at the beginner levels. Proper technique and education about the sport is the foundation upon which we base our practice groups. As a swimmer develops certain skills and performance benchmarks, training and conditioning are introduced and increased at levels appropriate for each individual’s age and maturity. SBA is a member of the San Diego/Imperial Swimming LSC and United States swimming.

USA Swimming

USA Swimming is the National Governing Body for Amateur competitive swimming in the United States. The headquarters for USA Swimming is located at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Sixty-six percent (66%) of the revenues from the USA Swimming budget come from registration dues from athletes and membership fees from non-athletes and clubs.  When registered through USA Swimming, each swimmer has both liability and secondary medical insurance coverage. Each swimmer is covered at any organized practice of SBA and every competition that is USA Swimming sanctioned. Costs vary according to membership levels.

It is required of all SBA swimmers that they have a current USA Swimming membership. This membership not only supports swimming throughout the country, it also provides very important accident and medical insurance for every swimmer and club. Information on obtaining a USA Swim card is provided upon joining SBA.
