Swim Club Trial Outline
The Duneland Swim Club
offers a trial program during the Fall/Winter season and
Spring/Summer season for beginning/new swimmers that are new to the
program. New swimmers must be at least 4 years old, be able to put
their face in the water, and swim 12 1/2 yards without touching the
bottom or side. This program is designed to give new swimmers
an introduction into the Duneland Swim Club structure and training.
Swimmers participating in this program will learn the basic skills
and techniques that will be used throughout their Duneland Swim
Club career. Practice times for these athletes will vary from
swimmer to swimmer, depending on their individual skill level and
comfort level in the water.
During the Fall/Winter
seasons the trial program will be offered EVERY 4
WEEKS throughout the season, ending prior to the Northwest
Indiana Swim Conference Championship Meet.
These Trial Programs are
not intended for those returning athletes not in our beginner
groups. This program will be offered to those individuals new
to the program or still developing the skills and comfort level
needed to progress into the Duneland Swim Club full membership

You will pull up to entrance #34 in your

they clear 100.0 they will be allowed to enter the pool.
Parents will need to park and wait as no non-participants are not
allowed on deck at this time. Your child will need a mask to enter
the pool area. Come dressed in your suit and bring
goggles. You will need to arrive at 10 minutes before your
desired trial time. You will need to sign this
waiver before the tryout. You can either email it to
Coach Christy by replying to this email or print, sign, and bring
with you to the tryout.
If you pass the try out we will tell you which group
to register for if there is space available and then you will go to
duneswim.com and complete online registration for new
swimmers. You must pass the tryout before you register!
You will also need to bring a copy of your birth certificate and
