So you want to join SUSA?  Here is what you need to know:

We begin with a tryout

Most tryouts are held on scheduled days at Washington City Community Center. Please contact Coach Dani (TEXT 435-669-6093)  to find out when the next tryout will be held.

Once we evaluate your child's skills, we will be able to tell you which of our groups would be the best fit. 

We can then discuss locations, practice times and costs of the program.  Generally, we have the following options, but your child's tryout is critical to determining the appropriate group.

  • Pre-Comp 1 -- Intermediate Skills -- 3 days per week for 30 minutes.
  • Pre-Comp 2 -- Advanced Skills -- 3 days per week for 40 minutes.
  • Pre-Comp 3/Team Prep -- Conditioning and skills preparation for joining team -- 3 days per week for 50 min.
  • Royal Rays 1 & 2 (intermediate skill levels) -- practice minimum 3-4 days per week for 75-90 minutes
  • Stingrays 1 & 2 (advanced skill levels) -- practice minimum 5-6 times per week for 90-120 minutes, dryland workouts for Stingrays 2
  • Senior Development (ages 15+, intermediate and advanced) -- practice minimum 4-5 times per week for 90-120 minutes
  • National Development (ages 15+, advanced) -- practice minimum 8 times per week for 120 minutes plus dryland workouts

Once you have been assigned a group, go online to register at www.susastingrays.com.  

Click on the button labeled "Registration" under the pictures on the Home Page.  Choose the correct team -- either Competition Team, Pre-Comp Team, or HS Development.  Please note that registration for Summer Team is a different website and database (the link will take you there).

For Pre-Comp groups, you pay a one-time fee per session.

For our Competition Team, you will be required at registration to pay USA Swimming registration* and team membership dues.  If registering after the 25th of the month, you will not be billed for that month (you can start on the first of the following month).  If registering before the 25th of the month, you will be billed for that month.   Dues range from $75-$120, depending on your location and practice group.

Please pay attention to the agreements you are electronically signing at registration, particularly the Financial Responsibility Contract.  Submitting registration means you have read and agreed to these agreements, which are required to become SUSA members.

You do not need to be a member at any of the facilities to join.  However, if you choose to practice at Summit (and your child is not a member), you will be billed for a Summit non-member usage fee as part of your monthly dues.  Pre-Comp groups pay a non-member fee per session.

After registering, you should receive a confirmation email prompting you to create a login and password.

This password will allow you access to our site, including viewing your billing account, signing up for meets and checking results.  If you do not receive an email within one week of registering, please call Coach Dani at 435-669-6093.
