Competitive FAQ

Why does my swimmer need to be registered with US Swimming (calendar year- annually?)


To compete in US Swimming sanctioned meets, a competitive swimmer is required to be a member of US Swimming. A DACA swimmer must be a member.




What equipment does my swimmer need?


Kick Board
Soft Fins
Pull Buoy
Paddles (small red or green)
Goggles
DACA Cap
DACA T-Shirt
Higher level groups may require additional equipment. Further information should come from the swimmer's coach.




Do you hold classes in the rain?


Competitive practices are generally held in all weather conditions. Lightning and other severe weather may result in cancellation. Refer to the DACA website Homepage for cancellation information.




How do I change practice times and locations?


Families are welcome to request time and location changes, and can be accommodated according to group size and space availability by calling the Competitive office, 408-253-7946. If DACA is unable to accommodate a request, swimmers can be placed on a waitlist.




What if my child is injured or ill?


Illnesses or injuries of a short period of time should be called in to the Competitive office as a courtesy to the coach. DACA does not pro-rate monthly fees. A medical leave of absence for a longer term illness or injury will be accepted with a doctor's note. A place will be held and fees not charged for a swimmer out on medical leave. A doctor's release must be submitted to return.




How do I re-enroll?


Returning swimmers can find a DACA Returning Competitive Registration Form under Competitive Program on the DACA website.




Are there make-ups or credits for cancelled or missed practices?


There are no refunds, credits or make-ups for missed practices.




How do I withdraw? If I leave the program is my spot held?


An electronic Withdrawal Notice can be found on the DACA website and must be submitted and received by the 21st of the month prior to the intended month of inactivation. DACA does not hold a swimmer's place when withdrawn.
