Get Evaluated

WHAT DO I DO FIRST? 

Get evaluated. Contact Age Group Coach Kayla Mumpower at kaylamumpower@gmail.com to set up an evaluation appointment for your swimmer. Evaluations are done on Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 6:30 at The Columbus Aquatic Center.

WHAT DO I NEED TO GET EVALUATED?

A simple swim suit and a pair of goggles.

WHAT SKILLS MUST I KNOW? 

All incoming swimmers trying out for placement in one of our Developmental Groups must be able to demonstrate the following during their tryout:

  • Swim one lap (25 yards) freestyle/front crawl continuously and without assistance
  • Swim one lap (25 yards) backstroke continuously and without assistance

Swimmers who demonstrate proficiency in freestyle and backstroke may be asked to swim breaststroke and/or butterfly as well as longer distances in order to determine proper group placement in one of our more advanced Developmental Groups or in our Age Group Program.

WHAT AGES? 

Swimmers should be 5 years old by September 1st of the calendar year to be a part of the Hurricanes year-round program.

ANY COSTS? 

No cost for evaluations.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? 

10 - 15 minutes, plus you can talk with a coach about any questions you may have.

WHAT DO WE DO AFTER THE EVALUATION? 

You will have a short consult with a coach to discuss your swimmer's evaluation and which group is the best fit for your athlete's needs.
