CST Tryouts (pick either day)
Tryouts for CST will be held on Wednesday April 25 at 4 pm and Saturday April 28 at 9 am for swimmers age 5-18. You may choose the time/date most convenient to your family. Swimmers should wear their suits and bring goggles and a towel. During the tryout the coaches will evaluate each swimmer's readiness for competitive swimming. The 8 and under kids will be asked to swim the length of the pool (25 yards) doing freestyle, though 6 and under swimmers are not expected to complete the lap necessarily. Backstroke will also be evaluated. Coaches will be looking for swimmers who don't mind getting their face wet, are willing to listen to instruction, and enjoy being in the water. For ages 9 and up, 2 laps of freestyle and 1 of backstroke will be required. Bring a friend and a great attitude!
After both tryout days the coaches will determine who has made the team and will email you accordingly. Depending on the number of returning swimmers and new swimmers, some may be placed on a waiting list or referred to swim lessons.
You may want to have your swimmer take a few lessons prior to tryouts. Please contact the CWAC staff (256) 775-7946 to set this up.
