Join Our Team:
Tryout Information: Short Course (25 Meter pool) try-outs will be scheduled in late August/early September. Please contact [email protected]
Important: In order to participate, you must contact us to get a scheduled time for your swimmer(s) tryout. Walk-ins are not allowed. Please have a bathing suit, towel, flip-flops or slides and goggles (if you have them) for your swimmer. Tryouts take about 15-20 minutes. Please note the pool water can be colder than what your child might be used to so please speak to your child and prepare him/her accordingly.
Due to the pool time allocated to the AquaFlyers, we have a limited number of openings on the team for this Long Course season. No placement decisions will be made during tryouts.
For more information about the different practice teams, practice schedule, and program fees click on the red "Teams" tab located near the top of our website.
Thank you for your interest in the New Fairfield AquaFlyers Swim Team.
The NF AquaFlyers program is comprised of 2 seasons: the short course season (September through March) and long course season (April through July). For those not aware, "long course" and "short course" refer to length of pools and not length of seasons. A swimmer can participate in one or both seasons during the year.
Swimmers interested in trying out are invited to attend an tryout session (held just prior to each season). During tryouts, coaches will individually evaluate each swimmer based on his/her knowledge of the 4 strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly), speed, attitude, age and previous swim experience. Athletes who make the AquaFlyers will be placed on one of 7 practice teams that match his/her ability and maturity. Depending on the practice team, swimmers will practice 2 to 6 times a week.
To be an NF AquaFlyer you do not need to be a resident of New Fairfield.
Important: Due to the size of our pool, we have a maximum number of roster spots on each practice team. While we try to accommodate all swimmers, there are times when we have to limit the number athletes due to capacity. As a result, tryouts do not always guarantee a position on the team.
All tryouts are held at the New Fairfield High School Pool. If interested, please e-mail [email protected].com to schedule a tryout.
