Swim Team Tryouts for 2022-2023 season
Try Outs for the 2022 - 2023 Short Course Season
2022 - 2023 Short Course Season runs from September-April.
Swim tryouts will be held in INDOOR pool.
Tryouts will begin at 8:00 a.m. each day. It would be helpful for last names beginning with A - L arrive at 8:00 and last names beginning with M - Z arrive at 9:00. Although this is not required, it will help reduce waiting time for swimmers.
Monday, July 25: 8 years old & under
Tuesday, July 26: 9 - 10 year olds
Wednesday, July 27: 11 years old & over
Make up tryouts for all ages - Saturday, July 30, 8:00am - 10:00am (in the OUTDOOR pool)
The 11 and older try out will be run as a group and it will be run like a practice. Expect to be in the water for approximately 30 minutes. The younger age groups may be doing try outs on a one-by-one basis, or possibly in small groups.
All try outs will be held at Dublin Indoor pool. Please complete the online form before coming to the pool and then come to the table to sign in .
A typical practice session lasts from 1-1.5 hours, appropriate for their age group. We don't expect new swimmers to know how to swim all of the strokes at the try out, but coaches will be looking at breathing as well as how movement through the water, and the potential to complete a practice.
Beginner Swimmers: Coaches are looking to see what you can do, what your potential is, and whether you will be able to complete a one hour practice with a group of your peers. (Swimming 20 lengths or more during practices is to be expected.) Sidebreathing during freestyle is expected.
Experienced Swimmers: In addition to a demonstration of your strokes, coaches want to know your past swim team experience in order to place you in the correct practice group. A list of your fastest times in a variety of events will be helpful in determining placement. (Times are available on the USA Swimming website for swimmers transferring from another USA Swimming club team).
