Membership Information

Two week free trial!

Your child can try SFST for free for 2 weeks to see if they like it. The first week of the free trial will just be kids doing the free trial. This week swimmers will focus on an introduction to what SFST is, evaluate the current levels of everyone, and show what the kids do at practice. Week 2 will be with the other team members in the practice group we think your child would fit into best. 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. 

Summer two week free Trial Information
Our summer season will be beginning the first week of April. We will be having two evaluation nights in March. On these evaluation nights your child will be evaluated by one of our coaches. Once your child has been evaluated the coach will place them in a group that they feel they will fit best in. Your child will then begin the two week free trial with their group the following week. Our March evaluation nights will take place on Tuesday, March 27th and Wednesday, March 28th.

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 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 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 over a three 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. **Therefore, the entire session fee will be billed, even if the swimmer quits part way through the session**

What If My Swimmer Joins Part Way Through A Session?

1. USA Swimming Fees - must be paid in full when your swimmer registers.

2. All Returning Members - Full session fees are due upon registration.

3. All New Members – Session fees will be prorated from the date of registration.
