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 August 30th and 31st. Swimmers should plan to attend at least 1 day but can attend both days. Coaches will notify you by Wednesday 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 (September 1st and 2nd - no practice the 3rd).
