Swim Team: How to Join Swim Team

How to Join Swim Team

Streamliner Aquatics offers a USA Swimming year-round competitive program for ages 6 and over swimmers who are interesting in a competitive team experience. Swimmers may tryout and join the team at any time throughout the year.

Step 1: Contact a coach, Hong Shao at [email protected] or 510-396-2965 to set up a tryout time.

All swimmers need to undergo a tryout to be placed in a practice group at their appropriate level. Assessments during tryouts typically take approximately 10 minutes, and we may invite your swimmer to join the group for a full practice to ensure they are in the proper group.

Group Placement Standards

Step 2: Complete the online registration for your swimmer. There are two USA Swimming memberships: Flex and Premier membership.

The Crunch membership is not required to be on the swim team. However, if you would like to use other parts of the gym besides the swimming pool, you will need to contact Crunch to sign up for a Crunch membership.
