2014/15 Short Course Season is from September - April.
Due to a family medical emergency, there has been a delay in compiling the roster. The roster will not be posted by Saturday, as had been previously indicated. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
In case of lightning/thunder, the MSA website will be updated ASAP. ONLY if tryouts are cancelled altogether will there be a makeup day on Thursday.
Try Outs for the 2014/15 Short Course Season
Monday, August 11th will be 8 year olds and under
Tuesday, August 12th will be 9-10 year olds
Wednesday, August 13th will be 11 year olds and up
Thursday, August 14th - weather makeup day and/or callbacks
All try outs will be held at Dublin Indoor pool at 4:30 P.M. Please come to the table to sign in and submit your completed tryout form. Tryout forms can be found under the Documents tab (blue task bar). Please come on dates listed based on your child's age. Your swimmer also needs to bring goggles.
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.
Beginning 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).
