Sea Dawgs Competitive Swim - 110115

REGISTRATION WILL NOT OPEN UNTIL AFTER SUIT FITTING

If you are looking for a competitive swim program for your child, consider the Sea Dawgs. The Cambridge Sea Dawgs is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization that promotes competitive swimming for the children of Cambridge and the surrounding towns! The mission of the program is to provide an inclusive environment for all participants through a dedication to sportsmanship and healthy competition.

Our program is open to any child between the ages of 5-18 who can swim 25 yards of freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke without assistance or stopping. A basic understanding of butterfly is also expected. Please, remember this is not a learn to swim program; any swimmer interested in joining our team must have prior swim knowledge and instruction. Fundamentals of each competitive stroke is required.

The swim season runs from late September through mid-March. Swimmers are expected to attend three practices a week and six regular season meets, in addition to a championship meet at the end of the season. The coaching staff expects an attendance rate of 75% or more for practices and 100% attendance for meets; this allows swimmers the chance to chart their progress and see improvements towards their individual and team goals. Parents/Guardians and Children should heavily consider this commitment before registering.

For us to continue to provide a swim team at a reasonable cost, we rely on parent volunteers. We enjoy a swim meet schedule that requires a minimal amount of out-of-town travel. In turn, we provide officials, times, scorekeeper, and several other roles that are involved in running a meet. We require parents/guardians to volunteer at least three times throughout the season. Parents/Guardians can sign up a week in advance through an interactive online signup sheet sent via email.

The cost is $425 for the first child and $225 for each additional child. Additionally, there will be a suit cost of $15 per female suit and $5 per male suit. The suit fee will be collected during registration. The cost is partly subsidized by both the City of Cambridge and thanks to the parent volunteers who organized and worked the concession stands throughout the 2018-2019 swim season.

Tryouts for 2019-2020 Sea Dawgs - for current Sea Dawg members (those who participated in the 2018-2019 Winter team and the 2019 Spring team) will be as follows: Monday September 16th for those with the last name beginning A-H, Tuesday September 17th for those with the last name beginning I-P and Wednesday September 18th for those with the last name beginning Q-Z. The time is 5:30-7:30pm. New swimmer's will tryout on Friday September 20th. Those with the last name beginning A-M will come between 5:15-6:15pm and those with the last name beginning N-Z will come between 6:15-7:15pm. Group assignments and the practice schedule will be emailed to parents/guardians by Sunday at midnight.

SUIT FITTING AND REGISTRATION
Monday September 23rd from 5:30-7:00pm for swimmers with the last name beginning A-M

Wednesday September 25th from 5:30-7:00pm for swimmers with the last name beginning N-Z

Please do not come in on a day other than what has been assigned. This is a busy time for the front desk, coaches, and those helping with the suit fitting. Please fill out your registration form in advance and be ready with your child's bathing suit size. Knowing the approximate size in advance will help save time. The swimsuit kit, provided for try on, is limited to 1 suit per size.
