Before you arrive,  print out this Tryout Form, complete it and bring it to the pool to save yourself time.

Preparing for tryouts

Parents must be present during tryouts and must sign a tryout form, which acts as a waiver for the club.

Swimmers spend five to 10 minutes in the water. The start time depends on coach availability.

Swimmers should come to the pool ready to swim with suit on, towel handy and goggles adjusted.

Swimmers should be able to enter the pool without assistance and swim at least 25 meters. They should be able to float on their backs and swim at least partially across the pool using freestyle.

A member of the coaching staff will assign swimmers to a practice group at the end of the tryout. LAMVAC coaches consider both the physical and mental readiness of each swimmer.
