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.

If you would like your swimmer to be evaluated in the months between September-June, please email us the following e-mail: 
information@tstkc.org  with the following information and a representative will contact 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

Please take a minute to look through our website.  There is a lot of helpful information. 

 

If you have any questions, please direct them to:  information@tstkc.org

What to wear?
Swimmers must come to the evaluation session ready to swim. This includes:

  • Proper swim training attire. Baggy shorts or ’beach wear’ are not acceptable. Call or email if you are unsure what this means.
  • Goggles and a swim cap if the child needs one.
What to expect?
Evaluations will determine if the child is ready for organized competitive swim training. They are comprehensive and can be physically stressful. All activities are age appropriate and simulate what athletes will experience in actual workout sessions.

Why should my child swim?
Tsunami Swim Team is one of the premier youth sports program in the Kansas City Metro area. There are many benefits to getting your child involved in competitive swimming, including:

  • Swimming promotes physical development.
