  • Joining the Swim Team Step One: Tryouts

Doing a tryout is the first step in joining the team. This is a chance for the coach to see if the prospective swimmer is actually ready for swim team, and if so which level they will start at.

Tryouts for the swim team are done in the form of a drop in practice. All interested swimmers must pass a tryout before registering with the swim team. Please contact Head Coach Jen Purvis [email protected] to schedule a tryout.

*Please note that not everyone who tries out makes the team. Crimson Aquatics has an open door policy and anyone not ready is encouraged to take any needed lessons and come back again for the next try out. 

Athlete placement into a training group is based on their age and ability. The coaches are the only ones qualified to make that determination. 

Please note that Crimson Aquatics is a competitive swim team, and that practice and meet attendance is expected.
