The Year Round Swim Team is an annual program that trains and competes September to June, whereas the Summer Swim Team is only eligible to compete during the summer season, but offers off-season training for the rest of the year. You can register for the Summer Swim Team & Off-Season Training as a seasonal program, or pick the annual program option. Annual programs include a 12-month CGC membership for the participant and an option for dryland and yoga training; seasonal programs do not.
