Membership Information
Thank you for your interest in the Mississippi Makos Swim Team!
 

Tryouts:
Mississippi Makos Swim Team accepts swimmers ages 5 and up.  We encourage swimmers of different abilities to join the team throughout the year.  The only requirement is that they must be able to swim 25 yards unassisted.   Before joining our team, we ask that you come to have your swimmer evaluated for group placement and to learn more about our team.  This evaluation will help determine your swimmer’s correct group placement and give you an opportunity to talk to the coaches and parents of swimmers currently on the team.  Please have your swimmer bring a swimsuit, goggles and towel.

If you would like your swimmer to be evaluated, please
contact us with the following information and a representative will get back with you to set up a time for your swimmer to be evaluated.
 

  • Swimmer’s name
  • Swimmer’s age and birthdate
  • Parent name
  • Previous swimming experience
  • Contact phone number
  • If you are interested in swimming in Jackson/Flowood or Clinton
Annual USA Swimming Membership:
Every Mississippi Makos Swim Team swimmer is required to join USA Swimming because this membership covers the team’s liability at the pool and swim meets.  If the swimmer has not paid for this membership, he/she will NOT be allowed to swim.  The cost of USA Swimming membership for the 2017-18 year is $64.
 
In addition to this yearly insurance, Mississippi Makos requires monthly dues and an annual registration fee as shown below.
