WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • We will be hosting simple tryouts for new members starting the week of August 16th
  • You may book a tryout with our Team Manager Danica Garbett at [email protected]

HOW WILL THESE TRYOUTS WORK

  • Tryouts will be a simple 20-minute session with the aspiring swimmer and one of Nemwarket Stingrays coaches
  • Swimmers will come in and the coaches will assess a few basic skills to make sure we are placing young swimmers in the appropriate program for them to learn and progress
  • Our staff is well aware that swim lessons have been challenging to come by during the pandemic so we are not looking for perfection, we just want to see what each aspiring swimmer can do

SKILLS WE WILL BE LOOKING FOR

  • Young aspiring swimmers who love the water
  • Coachable young swimmers – can aspiring swimmers listen, take in corrections, and learn
  • A basic freestyle/front crawl and a basic backstroke/back crawl are essential
  • Comfortable in both deep and shallow water

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY SWIMMER’S TRYOUT?

  • Our Newmarket Stingrays coaches will be providing feedback to aspiring swimmers and will be available on a limited basis to give feedback to parents
  • Group placements will not be made the day of your tryout
  • After your child’s tryouts Newmarket Stingray’s Head Coach Dave Ling will contact your family regarding next steps in terms of placement and registration – this feedback will come the Friday of the week your swimmer(s) attended their tryout

HOW MANY TRYOUTS DO I HAVE TO ATTEND?

  • Just 1, although we will have multiple weeks of tryouts so if you feel your child did not get put their best foot forward in their first tryout we will welcome you to come to a second session
  • Because tryout space is limited there will be a $10 administration fee associated with a second tryout session
