The Palos Orland Swim Association would like to invite swimmers to try out for our competitive swim team for the 2019 Spring/Summer Season. The season will begin on April 22nd and go through the End of June/Early July. The championship season runs through July.
Some things have changed this season so please read all the information!
Registration is open on March 15th - April 12th for returning swimmers and March 15th - April 16th for New Swimmers!
Anyone wanting to sign up after registration is closed will be put on a wait list and notified if we have available spots on the team.
Each swimmer participating on our team will be required to attend a minimum of 3 meets per season (swimmer's choice and includes our intrasquad meets). We are a competitive swim team and the Coaches want to see the kids compete at meets and attain official USA swim times.
New Swimmer Team Tryouts:
We will be offering a tryout for all new swimmers ages 5 years old and up (we will consider 4 year olds based on ability) that would like to be on the team. Tryouts will be held on April 15th and 16th. Swimmers should plan to attend at least 1 day but can attaned both days. Coaches will notify you by the end of the week if your swimmer has made the team, if you are on a waitlist or should attend swim lessons.
If you were notified you made the team, your swimmer will be assigned a practice group and that is the group you will attend on the first day of practice (April 22nd). If you are on the waitlist, you will be notified in April, if we have available spots on the team for your swimmer.
If the swimmer wants to leave the team after the first 2 weeks of practice, a parent must contact the POSA Board or Head Coach by May 3rd. The registration fees will be refundable at this time (a processing fee for credit card payments will be deducted from the registration fees refund).
Please come on the first day of practice (April 22nd) to your designated age group practice. All 10 and Unders are from 7:00-8:00 and all 11 and Overs are 8:00-9:00.
