Summer Tryouts


All returning swimmers must register online before March 31 - registration now open. Please check with your coach on what group you will be in. If you are not returning to the team please e-mail Coach Dave so he can deactivate your account.


All new swimmers must tryout for CWAC to ensure that they are both ready for the team and that they are placed in the proper group. For a description of the groups and requirements click here. Tryout dates and times are below. You only need to attend one day and you do not need to sign up for a specific date or time, just show up and you will be tested.  Tryouts usually take about 10-12 minutes.

Upon arrival please make sure you fill in a tryout worksheet with your child’s name, age, date of birth, current group (if applicable) and clearly written e-mail address. Once complete please return the worksheet back to the main table and wait until your child’s name is called by a coach. If your child has been on a team before please be sure to provide the coaching staff with a list of their best times.
