Evaluations: Tsunami Swim Team accepts swimmers onto
the team through out the year at the first of each
month. Before joining our team, we ask that you come to have
your swimmer evaluated for group placement and 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. Evaluation does not guarantee registration with
the team. The only requirement for your swimmer is to be
able to swim 25 yard freestyle and 25 yard
backstroke. Please have your swimmer bring a suit,
goggles and towel.
