FAQs

Who is eligible?
The team is open to all swimmers age 6-18 who can complete the tryout and have not swam for a USA team during the current year. A USA swimmer who has swam after January 1 of the current year can practice with the team, but cannot participate in any competitions.

When is registration?
Registration for the summer season occurs in late April/early May. Registration for the off-season varies some, but winter registration is generally in September and spring registration in February. Exact registration dates will be posted on the News page when they are set. Returning swimmers have the option to register before new swimmers for all seasons.

How do I register?
Registration can be done online at www.planoparks.org by clicking Register Online button, then go to Programs, Aquatics and finally Specialized Aquatics. It can also be done at any recreation center in person or over the phone.

What do tryouts consist of and when are they?
To qualify for the team, swimmers 10 and younger must be able to swim freestyle (front crawl) and backstroke (back crawl) 25 yards each without stopping.  Swimmers 11 and older must be able to swim 25 yards of all 4 competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly). Swimmers try out for the team after registering. Waitlisted swimmers only try out if a spot becomes available for them and they have not previously completed a tryout.  For the summer season, there is a specific day in May (will be posted on the News page) that everyone tries out due to the large numbers. For all other seasons tryouts please email Anita Dupree at planoaquaducks@gmail.com to request a tryout.  If a child does not qualify for the team all money will be reimbursed, if you have already signed-up.

How often do the Aquaducks practice?
During the summer season the Aquaducks swim Monday through Friday. During winter and spring seasons they swim twice a week, either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday.

Are the fees monthly, yearly, or per season?
The Aquaducks fees are per season. The winter season, spring season, and summer season all have separate fees. For instance, the summer fee covers all of June and July.

I’m not getting the weekly emails, what do I do?
Send an email to: PlanoAquaducks@gmail.com and ask to be added to our emailing list.

What is the withdrawal policy?
The withdrawal policy is the same as for all parks and recreation classes. A swimmer must withdraw two weeks prior to the start date to receive a full refund. A swimmer may only withdraw after that time if there is someone on the waiting list willing to fill their spot and a $5 administrative fee will be charged. If a swimmer must withdraw due to a medical condition (e.g. broken bone) a refund will be given based on how many practices they must miss.

What equipment or other expenses are involved?
The only required equipment is a swimsuit and towel. Optional equipment includes goggles and a swim cap. However, if your swimmer prefers goggles, they must supply their own goggles. The Aquaducks do have a team suit, cap and shirt but the purchase of all these things are completely optional. Entry into swim meets is $3 per person.

Where can I buy swimsuits, goggles, etc?
There is a swimming store named Xtreme Swim Shop at the NE corner of Park and Coit. This is where you can buy the Aquaducks team suit and other swimming equipment. ( 2220 Coit Rd, Plano, TX 75075)
