WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR TRYOUT

Tryouts take approximately 10 minutes where swimmers will be asked to perform the following skills:

1. Swim 25 yards/meters non-stop freestyle with side breathing (rhythmic breathing)

2. Swim 25 yards/meters non-stop backstroke with rhythmic arm stroke, staying relatively horizontal on the back for the duration

3.  Swim 25 yards/meters non-stop breaststroke, turning feet out during kick.  

4.  Swim at least 1/2 pool length using butterfly

5.  Dive head first into deep water and glide to top

6.  Perform a front somersault in the water

We are not looking for "perfect" strokes, but Freestyle and Backstroke should be very solid, and breaststroke should have feet turning out, even if timing is off slightly.  Butterfly, we are looking that the swimmer can get their arms out of the water simultaneously.
