Summer Tryouts


All new swimmers must tryout for CWAC to ensure that they are both ready for the team and that they are placed in the proper group. CWAC recommends that all swimmers ages 7 and above who are interested in trying out for the swim team have, at minimum, a good understanding of all 4 strokes (backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle) and the ability to complete 25 yards of each.

If your swimmer does not meet this criteria, please visit the swim lesson page, where you will find more information about our Wolfpack Swim School and Pack Prep program that focuses on development of all 4 strokes and preparing swimmers for the swim team.

Prospective members will need to sign up for a time slot using the link below.  More detailed instructions will be provided for those that sign up.  If your child has been on a team before please be sure to provide the coaching staff with a list of their best times.  Tryouts should be done at the pool you are looking to attend.
