Alamo Area Aquatic Association-Palo Alto (AAAA-PA) Swim Teams

AAAA-PA is divided into three main programs: Senior (Gold), Age Group (Silver), and Developmental (Bronze). Each of the three groups is designed to provide a competitive swimming experience appropriate for the age and skill-level of each athlete. 

Registration

USA Swimming registration is required for all athletes upon joining the team. There is both a USA Swimming fee, as well as an AAAA-PA club fee associated with registration that must be paid annually. In addition to the yearly registration fees, each member is also responsible for their monthly dues associated with their practice group. These fees are subject to change annually and members will be notified in advance.

 

Annual Registration and Club Fee

  • USA Swimming Registration Fee: $78
  • AAAA-PA Club Fee: $100 (to include one team gear annually)
  • USA and AAAA-PA Registration Bundle: $150

 

Discounts Available:

  • Outreach Athletes: 50% reduction in practice fees for swimmers who participate in Free/Reduced Priced Lunch Programs (must provide documentation from school)
  • Multiple Children: $10 off each additional child in swim team program

 

All team participants must pay the full monthly dues by the 1st of each month. There will be a five (5) day grace period, by which time a $15 late fee will be included and $5 every day thereafter. Payments are encouraged to be made online at alamo.edu/pac/. 

All NEW swimmers are required to provide a copy of their insurance with their registration and team application, along with any supporting documentation for transfers and outreach verification. Failure to properly register your athlete and/or pay monthly dues will result in your child being dismissed from the team.

Competition Fees

In addition to monthly dues, each athlete is responsible for any fees associated with swim meets they attend throughout the year. These entry fees will be due to Palo Alto College on the day of each swim meet. Once entered, each swimmer is responsible for these fees regardless of whether or not he or she attends the meet. If entry fees have not been paid, the swimmer will not be entered into any following meet until the balance is covered. Any balance not paid after 90 days, will result in the swimmer being dismissed from the team.

Team Gear

AAAA is sponsored by Arena USA and each team member is required to be outfitted in our Arena Team Apparel at all swim meets, including Arena Navy Blue swim suit, Arena Navy Blue Backpack, and Yellow AAAA Team Swim Cap. Equipment can be purchased at SwimFreak or our team store at SwimOutlet. The AAAA-PA Club Fee will help provide an assortment of gear for the swim team, to include caps, kickboards, fins, equipment bags, etc. September 2018, club fees will go towards the purchase of personalized Arena Backpacks for all members of the swim team, as well as t-shirts and other necessary equipment.
