New Swimmer Evaluations Spring 2018
SPY Swim Team will host evaluations for potential swim team members on Monday March 19th, Tuesday March 20th, and Thursday March 29th. Evaluations will take place from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM on each of those dates.
Evaluations for swimmers take 10 to 15 minutes depending on the age of the swimmer. We look at all four competitive strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly). 8 and under swimmers may not be able to perform all four strokes legally, but we need to see that they have experience or an idea of what the strokes are. Swimmers 9 years and older should be able to display a proficiency in all four strokes.
Swimmers do not need to be current YMCA members to be evaluated, but all swimmers who are placed on the team must be YMCA member to be a SPY swim team member. Swimmers only need to attend 1 evaluation, there is no need to attend multiple nights.
If you have questions you can email SPY Head Age Group Coach Alex Totura. If you are unable to make the specific evaluation dates, then email about setting up another time.
