Two Week Free Trial

Two-Week Free Trial:

  1. What is the Two-Week Free Trial?
    1. A two-week free trial is an evaluation done by the coaching staff to place each swimmer in the appropriate group level. We start accepting swimmers out of lessons around the age of 6 and up. Each swimmer is different and may or may not be ready. We give them two weeks to see if they enjoy the team, are able to do the required skills, and place them in the correct group. After the two-week free trial we will discuss your child’s level and what to do next. When swimmer’s show up, they should be ready to swim with a swimsuit, goggles, and towel.


  1. How do I schedule a Two-Week Free Trial?
    1. We offer the two-week free trial at any time during the season. We encourage families to complete a two-week free trial at the beginning of the season but we understand that sometimes other activities get in the way. The two weeks must be consecutive and we encourage swimmers to attend as many days during those two weeks as possible so we get an idea of where to place them on the team. To inform the coaches of when you will be participating we ask that you call the team at 605-988-4170 so we are ready for your swimmer!


  1. What swimming strokes does my child need to know to join the team?
    1. In order to be eligible to be considered for a spot on our team, a swimmer must be a least 6 years during the season, able to complete 25 yards of freestyle, 25 yards of backstroke, and able to tread water for 1:00 without stopping. Swimmer who can complete the minimum requirements may be asked to demonstrate other skills such as butterfly or breaststroke, competition turns, and starts as part of the tryout process. While these skills are not required, they help us correctly place the swimmers within the right group.
