Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we have had to cancel
our Try-outs for Short Course and Learn to Swim program until
further notice. Please continue to check back as our next
season begins in April.
Try-outs for Short Course
have been canceled this season.
The NF AquaFlyer program is
comprised of 2 seasons: the SHORT course season
(September through February/March) and LONG course season
(April through June/July). For those not aware, "long course"
and "short course" refer to length of pools and not length
Swimmers interested in trying out are
invited to attend an evaluation session (held just prior to each
season). During evaluations, coaches will individually
evaluate each swimmer based on his/her knowledge of the
4 strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly),
speed, attitude, age and previous swim experience. Athletes who
make the AquaFlyers will be placed on one of 6 practice teams that
match his/her ability and maturity. Depending
on the practice team, swimmers will practice 3 to 6 times a
an NF AquaFlyer you do not need to be a resident of New
to the size of our pool, we have a maximum number of roster spots
on each practice team. While we try to accommodate all swimmers,
there are times when we have to limit the number athletes due
to capacity. As a result, evaluations do not always guarantee a
position on the team.
All evaluations are held at the New Fairfield
High School Pool. If interested, please e-mail
