How do I tryout for the team?

We encourage each child and parent to observe one of our regular team practices, which are held Monday through Friday starting at 5:00 pm. Interested swimmers ages 6 through 18 must be able to swim 2 of the 4 competitive strokes across the pool (25 yards) and will be evaluated by our coaches. To schedule a tryout, please click here or email us at swiminfo@rainbowaquatics.org

 

Do I need to complete any forms before the tryout?

No, forms are not necessary prior to tryouts. Upon assessment and placement by a coach, your swimmer may practice with a free two-week trial. After the trial period, registration forms must be completed. Click here for link to registration forms.
