Competitive Swimming in South Jersey

Kroc Center-Camden and Medford Fitness Center

                               

 

 

All Blue Wave Aquatics members are required to be registered members of USA Swimming. There are some significant changes to the USA Swimming registration process - and ALL members will be required to register through the new platform.

Annual BWA registration fees have been adjusted and the cost of USA Swimming fees have been removed, as those fees will be paid separately from BWA fees and directly through USA Swimming.

ALL BWA MEMBERS MUST BE REGISTERED WITH USA SWIMMING. This registration process will take place separately from the BWA site. Account holders will be responsible for registering team members. The registration window for USA Swimming will open on or about September 1st. The approximate cost for all team members (Pre-Team excluded) is $85. Pre-Team will be able to register with a Flex membership at the cost of $20.  Detailed instruction will be provided as it becomes available to BWA from USA Swimming.
