NAC 2018-19 Spring/Summer Tryout Information
Where: Lincoln-Way East Aquatics Center. Park in the back (east) lot by the football field. Enter the main athletics entrance on the East side facing the field. Through the doors and to your right is the pool.
When: Monday, April 8th please arrive no earlier than 6pm and no later than 7:30pm.
What to bring: A towel, swim suit (does not need to be a competition suit, can be a leisure one), goggles,if you have them, and a cap.
What to expect: When you arrive, we’ll have you sign in. You’ll be given a slip of paper that will have your child’s name on it. This will be given to the coach who evaluates your child. Please don’t lose it, return it to where you signed in when the evaluation is done.
The coaches will observe your child swimming to determine his/her ability within the various strokes. Based on this, they will be initially assigned to a roster group (see “Team Info”, “Swim Groups” on the site for more information). There will be some shuffling of kids the first week or two as skills emerge. Placement is also based on age, as we will try to keep the same ages together as best as possible.
You may observe tryouts from the pool stands upstairs, or you may go out on deck and observe but you must remain seated in the bleachers. Please have your child go through the Boys/Girls PE locker rooms, adults must go through the adult locker rooms if going out on deck.
After the tryouts: There will be Coaches/Board Members available during tryouts to answer questions. If you have any after you leave, use the “Contact the Board” button on the web site.
Registration is online through the web site. Another document will be posted that will go over fees and team policies.
