Two week free trial!

Your child can try SFST for free for 2 weeks free! The last two weeks of every month we will host an evaluation night. This will usually take place at the EmBe down town. At this evaluation night one of our coaches will work with your child for about 15 minutes to see what they know in the water. Your child will then be placed in a group for their two weeks free. At the end of your 2 weeks one of our coaches will let you know how the trial went and how to register fully with the team. 

Fall Two Week Free Trial

We will be hosting our evaluation nights on Tuesday, September 4th and Wednesday, September 5th at the Midco Aquatic Center. At these evaluation nights your child will be evaluated by one of our coaches. The coaches will be looking to see what your child is able to do in the water and find a group that will fit your child best. All you will need to bring is a swimsuit, towel, and goggles. This evaluation should last around 15 minutes. You will also get the chance to meet some of our coaches as well as some parents of swimmers on the team. Your child will then be able to start their two-week free trial on the first day of swim practice for our fall/winter season - Monday, September 10th. 

To sign up for the fall/September evaluation night click HERE

If this two week trial period doesn't work for you please be on the lookout for our October two week trial - October 22nd- November 2nd

Please also register your swimmer in our system.  To do that, click Meets/Events at the top of this page, find NEW Swimmer Registration and click Register Online.  The system will walk you through what is needed.   Please complete this registration prior to your first date in the pool.

Swim Season Breakdown : Since Sioux Falls Swim Team is a year round competitive team, our swim seasons are divided into 3 sessions for each calendar year.  The 3 sessions are:  Fall, Winter & Summer. 

·     The Fall and Winter sessions consist of the Short Course/Indoor Season over 6 months which means that all training and racing are done indoors in a “short course” pool. A short course pool is a 25 yard pool (also known as SCY Pool) or a 25 meter pool (also known as a SCM Pool).

 

·     The Summer session consists of the Long Course/Outdoor Season over 4 months which means that most of the training and racing are done outdoors in a “long course” pool. A long course pool is a 50 meter pool (also known as a LCM Pool). 

Fees for each session are billed  month billing cycle through the SFST website (Please see payment schedule listed below). The first month of a session is due prior to the start of each session.  A swimmer enrolled in any session (Fall/Winter or Summer) understands the session fee, in its entirety, is due and payable to Sioux Falls Swim Team.  We have a 30 day termination form available under Parent Resources.
