2021-22 TRYOUT INFORMATION
Hello,
Thanks for your interest in our swim team program. Below is some information on when we are having tryouts.
 
Anyone interested in trying out for the Short course competitive swim team at the Sussex County YMCA please have them contact Coach Ray at [email protected] or [email protected]   In their correspondence, they will include the age of the child and any past competitive swim team experience, how many years and what team. 
 
Please have anyone who may have been referred to include that swimmers name or parents' name. The family who referred the child will receive a $10.00 meet fee credit as long as that child signs up for the swim team. The referrals are unlimited so if you get five then $50.00 additional dollars will be posted into your meet fee/escrow account. SPREAD THE WORD!!
 
More information is posted on our team website at www.scymcaswordfish.org
 
Coach Ray will contact them via email and set up a 15-minute timeslot to evaluate each child on one of the following days/times.
