Swim Team

We will accept in-person payments and have swimsuit try on/pickup
on Sunday, April 23rd 2pm-4pm at the Edgemere Clubhouse.
Registration Deadline is Monday, April 24.
The 2017 summer swim season is just around the corner and we are excited to welcome all of our returning and new swimmers! Here is some important information on fees, dates, and how we run our team.

The Chadds Walk Tidal Waves Swim Team is a Cobb County Summer Swim League (CCSSL) team open to children ages 5-18 (as of 5/31/17).  Registration fees are per child and include ribbons, a team medal, instruction, and participation in five league meets. The team is self-sufficient and relies heavily on parent participation. All programs are funded from registration fees and concession profits.

*We will offer rookie league swimming lessons for 4 year olds on Monday, Tuesday and Friday. The fee will be $5 per child per day and it will be paid at each class that your child(ren) will attend. Please go to Contact Us and select "Swim Team" to send us a message if you plan on being part of our rookie league program.

**For all working families that struggle with joining swim team because of practice times--we are working to find a solution for you! We are considering holding a practice on Tuesday night for kids that are unable to attend morning practices. The kids could also compete during the Wednesday night meets. The cost of joining swim team would be reduced because of the fewer number of practices. We need to hear from you if you are interested in this option so that we can determine the costs and sort out the details. Please go to Contact Us and select "Swim Team" and let us know if you would join swim team if night practice is an option.

2017  Tidal Wave Registration Fees

          $95 – First Swimmer – ages 5-14  ($80 for each additional swimmer in family)

          $20  – Per Swimmer – ages 15-18

          *If a swimmer is not a member of the Chadds Walk HOA, then there is a non-member fee of $10 per child.

Team Suits and Gear

Our Tidal Wave team suit for the 2017 and 2018 seasons will be the Speedos brand Angles suit (Blue) and can be ordered through the registration link. We will have the suits available to try on at the Edgemere Clubhouse from 2:00-4:00 on Sunday, April 23. You can exchange sizes at the clubhouse. Alternatively, we will have the suit you ordered ready for pickup at the first practice, but you will not be able to exchange sizes at that time. Tidal Wave suits are strongly suggested, but not required.
The cost for is $38 for male suits (jammers) and $55 for female suits.
Swimmers will also need goggles and swim caps (optional).

Parent Participation

Our swim team relies heavily on parents participation in order to have successful swim meets. Every parent needs to volunteer for a shift for each swim meet in which your child is participating. If you find that this is impossible to do, please contact the coordinators and we will find a solution for you.
