Welcome to the 2017-18 SCY Season!

Welcome to the New Trier Aquatics Family for the 2017-18 SCY Season!

No Tryouts are required for Masters swimming or Water Polo, although we encourage basic water safety skills as well as getting a thorough check-up with your doctor to make sure you are cleared to participate in an athletic endeavor.

Season Fees will be charged on September 8th after your athlete has been assigned to their training group. As a registered member of New Trier Aquatics, signing into your private account delivers you access to job sign-ups, declaring for competitions and social events, private time tracking participation and much more.

A few things to remember for the fall season - 
1) Make sure to order the appropriate gear for your athletes so that they have everything on the first day of workout. We recommend getting a fun gear bag and labeling everything clearly with their name in Sharpie. Suggested (not-required, but encouraged for durability) practice suits are also available  through our vendor, Kiefer

6) Make sure to read all our team policies (there aren't that many...) especially our volunteer policy. So much of what we do depends on having a great group of volunteers. We don't have a volunteer requirement, because we really want our team to be a community of positive and enthusiastic support for our athletes.
