Swim Competitions In San Jose

Youth Swim Meets for Level 5 and Up

Waterworks Aquatics hosts year-round swim competitions in San Jose. Our swim competitions provide a supportive environment to build swimming confidence and friendships. Children ages two and older, and level 5 or above will be grouped with their peers of similar age to compete with one another in our state-of-the-art San Jose aquatics facility.

All participants will receive a ribbon at the end of each meet. Once they have won 15 ribbons, they will receive a trophy rewarding them for their hard work and dedication.
