Tryout Requirements Please Read

Swimmers will be asked to participate in a typical practice session, appropriate for their age group. This practice could last 1-1.5 hours, so please plan on staying the entire session.

Beginner Swimmers: Coaches are looking to see what you can do, what your potential is, and whether you will be able to complete a one hour practice with a group of your peers. (Swimming 20 lengths or more during practices is to be expected.)

Experienced Swimmers: In addition to a demonstration of your strokes, coaches want to know your past swim team experience in order to place you in the correct practice group. A list of your fastest times in a variety of events will be helpful in determining placement. (Times are available on the USA Swimming website for swimmers transferring from another USA Swimming club team).
