Attached to this newsletter is the tryout flyer and tryout FAQ for the 2019-2020 winter season. The first tryout occurs tonight at the Old Bridge YMCA – Registration starts at 5:30pm, and Warmups will start promptly at 6:30pm. Additional tryout dates during August will be posted at a later time. All FOBY swimmers who fulfilled their commitment requirements from the 2018-2019 winter season have retained their spot on the team for next season and do not need to tryout. Those who did not fulfill their requirements were contacted last week. In order to make tryouts go as smooth as possible, we are requesting help from our returning swimmers and their families. Hours completed by swimmers can be signed off as volunteer hours. Feel free to forward the tryout flyer and information to any families who are interested in joining us. For more information, please visit our website – www.fobyswimteam.org
