Fall 2012 Try Outs for New Swimmers

All swimmers who have not previously swam with the team (this includes those who swam on Mighty Mites last year) are expected to come to try outs to be evaluated for a space on the LMAC competitive team.  Coaches need to see each new swimmer's ability level so they can be appropriately placed in a training group that suits their strengths and needs.

 

Reminders for Try Outs:

  • Please print, fill out and bring the (already completed) New Swimmer Questionnaire with you to your child's try out.
  • Try Outs on September 4th5th and 6th are only for those interested in COMPETITIVE swimming (and diving).  These swimmers, even those 8 and younger, should be able to swim at least one length of freestyle and backstroke legally and have a working knowledge of breaststroke and butterfly.  
  • Swimmers who are water safe and have already been through a swim lesson program are welcome to try out for Mighty Mites / Mighty Piranhas on September 10th or 11th.  These groups will teach proper stroke mechanics.
