Central California Swimming (CCS) provides online membership registration services for individuals, both athlete and non-athlete, who wish to become members of CCS and its parent organization, USA Swimming. Membership in CCS and USA Swimming will be deemed effective on the date that the online membership application is submitted and the monetary transaction for the membership fees is approved by our credit card processor. A confirmation of membership application may be printed at the time of submission and will be emailed to the athlete or parent/legal guardian of the athlete.

USA Swimming, however, has membership requirements for some, but not all, categories of members in addition to the submission of a membership application and payment of membership fees. An individual's membership in CCS and USA Swimming will not be considered "Valid" until any and all membership requirements are met. Membership cards for affiliated members (associated with a member club) will be forwarded to the member club within 30 days of the membership becoming "Valid". Membership cards for unaffiliated members will be forwarded to the individual member within 30 days of the membership becoming "Valid".

CCS also provides online meet entry services for athletes wishing to participate in swimming competitions sanctioned by CCS. An athlete will be considered entered in the meet once his or her entries are submitted and the monetary transaction for the meet entry fees is approved by our credit card processor. A confirmation of meet entry may be printed at the time of submission and will be emailed to the athlete or parent/legal guardian of the athlete.
