Whether you are interested in the Year Round Competitive Team or Seasonal, the SCAT Placement Trial is the first place to start.

Athletes will go through a series of swimming and learning skills to determine the best practice group.
Placement emails will be sent out to all athletes after the completion of all of our Placement Trial dates with a link and date to register. Registration will open to all on July 20th and slots will be filled on a first come first serve basis. Participation in a placement trial does not guarantee a slot. You must register on the site.
