The dates for Try-outs for the Short Course 2010/11 Season have been finalized.
Monday August 9th Ages 11 & over
Tuesday August 10th Ages 9 & 10 year olds
Wednesday August 11th Ages 6-8
Thursday August 12th Rain date/Possible call-back
Try-outs will start at 4:00 pm each day at Dublin's outdoor pool. Please try to arrive no later than 5:15.
Swimmers will be asked to swim a length (25yds) or two (50 yds) of the pool in each stroke that they are able to do. Proper side-breathing during freestyle is a requirement.
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).
Try out forms are under the Documents tab. Please print, fill out the swimmer and parent info and bring to your tryout.
