Does my child already need to know how to swim? Is there an age requirement?
After the summer, what if my swimmer wants to continue?
We hope to provide all athletes with not only the necessary skills to be a part the Elk Grove Aquatics club (EGAC) but also a love for
swimming. EGAC has qualifying times. Swimmers will be tested at the completion of the swim season. Swimmers whose times qualify can join EGAC during their upcoming season enrollment. If your swimmer is not quite ready for the EGAC program, they can re-enroll in the following Sprint Gator swim season at Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center. The Sprint Gators is run in 3 seasons: April-July, August-November, December-March.
All swimmers must become members of USA swimming in order to participate in Saturday practices or USA meets.
