Tryout Information
  • The objective of our tryouts is twofold.  First, they help our coaches evaluate a swimmer's ability to ensure proper group placement.  Secondly, they give swimmers and parents insight into our team and competitive swimming; we want to make sure that swimmers are ready to make the year round commitment and that we are a good fit for each family.
  • Swimmers should be prepared to tryout in a stroke clinic/practice type atmosphere with extensive instruction from our coaches.  Swimmers will be asked to perform drills and swim all four competitive strokes (swimmers must be legal in all four strokes). They will also be asked to execute a few dives and turns.  We feel this format gives us the best information on a swimmer's ability and interest in learning new technical procedures. It also provides an opportunity for us to interact with each individual swimmer and demonstrate some of the technique drills that we use during our regular practices.  Most importantly, our clinic format allows the swimmer to see the importance we place on the fundamentals.
  • Following each tryout session, we will evaluate and consider each swimmer based on their tryout performance and previous experience.  Swimmers and parents will be notified by email of our decision within the tryout week. This is a tryout, not everyone makes the team.
  • For further information concerning our Annual Age Group Tryouts or general team questions, please contact chris@denverswimacademy.com.  As always, we look forward to a fun and educational tryout.  Thank you again for your interest in Denver Swim Academy.
