Welcome to the Madison Aquatic Club Electronic Registration platform for our up coming swim season! We are pleased to offer electronic registration and payment processing. The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you easily declare for swim meets, sign-up for jobs, see your children's swim times histories, maintain your own contact information, and more.

 

We are back in the water beginning June 13th!

Registration will open on Thursday, June 11 at 9pm

We welcome everyone back to the pool!  Please read through the following information which will help guide us through this anything but normal season.  Please register promptly since space is limited. As we move to Phase 2 of Forward Dane, we anticipate being able to accommodate more swimmers.

It is important to understand the process and approach the coaches will take to the return to the pool. There are factors the coaches are keeping in mind that affect their planning especially since we have been out of the water for several weeks and fitness levels of our athletes may vary. We will be starting with slightly fewer than normal practices as we ramp up to July.This season will allow us to take a detailed, systematic and patient approach to refining skills, techniques and endurance. All swim practices will be 1 hour with 45 minutes of dryland to follow and 15 minute between groups to clean.

REGISTRATION & GROUP LEVEL INFORMATION:

  • This season will be divided into groups more broadly to assist everyone more easily.  
  • Instead of selecting your swimmer's roster group color, you will be selecting a specific practice time option.
  • Space is limited because of the distancing guidelines we are following. Please register promptly. Once a group is reaches 8 swimmers, it will be closed.
  • As we progress with Forward Dane and we anticipate adding another swimmer to each lane.  At that point, limits will be updated in registration and we will be able accept additional swimmers.

IMPORTANT WHEN REGISTERING SIBLINGS or MEMBERS OF THE SAME HOUSEHOLD: 

  • Register your oldest swimmer only. 
  • On the second registration screen that says "Existing Swimmers", select your oldest swimmer and their roster group..
  • On the next screen that says "Registration Fees" select the sibling "add-on" option to indicate the sibling/household member practice frequency preferred. This will help to avoid taking an additional lane space for a sibling within size limitations programmed into each practice time group slot but still get the second swimmer recognized.
  • 2nd swimmer "add on" fees programmed in registration are for June only. Remaining swim fees will be handled according to your registration invoicing preference.

Our goal is to help nurture athletes to develop confidence, respect, discipline and dedication that will help them be successful in life.  We provide swimmers of all ages and abilities the opportunity to participate in the sport and to provide a lifelong enjoyment of swimming.

Minimum requirements to join the beginning swim team group is the ability to swim 25 yards freestyle and 25 yards backstroke.  We have a variety of options for swimmers of all abilities.  If you are unsure if your child is ready for the swim team, email Janis Katz, MAC Business Manager at janiskatz@gmail.com for more information and/or to set up an evaluation.

WE WELCOME NEW MEMBERS THROUGHOUT THE SEASON.
