Membership Information

The Palos Orland Swim Association would like to invite swimmers to try out for our competitive swim team for the 2018 Spring/Summer Season.  The season will begin on April 9th and go through the end of June. The championship season runs through July.

Some things have changed this season so please read all the information!

Registration is open from February 5th - March 3rd!

*New this Season: 

There will be no fees charged at the time of registration. Fees will be charged on April 1st. If you choose the payment plan option, the plan fees will be charged: April 1st, May 1st and June 1st.

Anyone wanting to sign up after registration is closed will be put on a wait list and notified if we have available spots on the team.

Each swimmer participating on our team will be required to attend a minimum of 3 meets per season (swimmer's choice and includes our intrasquad meets). We are a competitive swim team and the Coaches want to see the kids compete at meets and attain official USA swim times.

Returning Swimmer Time Trial:

We will be having returning swimmer time trial practice in March. All returning swimmers will be required to participate in the one-day time trial; March 6th, 7th, or 8th from 6:00-7:30 pm. After registration closes on March 3rd, we will send out an email to sign up for the time trial day. After all swimmers attend the time trials, Coaches will be dividing the swimmers into their designated practice groups. Your swimmer will start the first day of practice in their designated group.

New Swimmer Team Tryouts:

We will be offering a tryout for all new swimmers ages 5 years old and up (we will consider 4 year olds based on ability) that would like to be on the team. Tryouts will be held on March 12-15th from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. Swimmers should plan to attend all 4 days. Coaches will notify you by March 19th if your swimmer has made the team, if you are on a waitlist or should attend swim lessons.

If you were notified you made the team, your swimmer will be assigned a practice group and that is the group you will attend on the first day of practice (April 9th). If you are on the waitlist, you will be notified in April, if we have available spots on the team for your swimmer.

If the swimmer wants to leave the team after the first week of practice, a parent must contact the POSA Board or Head Coach by April 14th. The registration fees will be refundable at this time (a processing fee for credit card payments will be deducted from the registration fees refund).
