Golden West Swim Club offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Golden West Swim Club to offer age specific training that encourages proper stroke mechanics for all of our athletes and is geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities. All swimmers are assigned to their group by the coaching staff based on ability and maturity. Our registration process is designed to be as simple and convenient as possible.
We offer the following programs:
- Pathways – Learn to swim
- Junior Guards
- Swim Groups – Competitive training groups by age and skill
- College Swim Program
- Master Swim Program
Joining the team process is simple:
- Attend a placement session. We ask that all swimmers schedule an “assessment swim” so that the coaching team can determine the best group for the swimmer. To request your “assessment” appointment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. At this time, we will email you a document with the team’s basic policies and procedures. Please review this document carefully – if you have any questions, please ask! After the “assessment”, the coach will provide you with the registration forms.
- Complete the registration forms and return them to the coach at your next practice. You must complete the GWSC registration form so that we can set up your account on our secure website. You must also complete the USA Swimming registration form, and you must provide a copy of a government-certified birth certificate or passport. Once we receive these completed forms, we will process your registration, and will email you instructions for signing on to your account on the GWSC website, so that you can access the “members only” sections of the website
- You will receive regular email notifications from the GWSC regarding swim meet sign-ups, volunteer job sign-ups, and any other team-related news. Please check your email on a regular basis.
Thanks again for your interest in Golden West Swim Club. We are excited to for you to join our team and look forward to seeing you at the pool.
