How to Join

Welcome New/Potential Parents and Swimmers!

UASC will be holding their New Swimmer Evaluations on Sunday, September 12th from 6:00-8:00pm at the Upper Arlington High School pool.  We will have swimmers evaluated in groups of 10.  Evaluations will last about 10 minutes in the water.  Swimmers will be asked to swim one lap of freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke.  

Swimmers are required to be able to swim 25 yards of continuous freestyle and 25 yards of continuous backstroke to be evaluated.

Black Bear tryouts will be limited to 7th & 8th grade and must be a UA resident.  All swimmers wishing to tryout will need to arrive at 7:20.  They will be asked to complete a swim set that will last until 8pm.  

New swimmer evaluation sign ups will close on Tuesday, September 7th.  I will email families their time slot by Friday, September 10th.  Please plan to arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to your time slot.  

We will have our Parent Board members present to answer any questions that you may have about the club.

Swimmers will be notified by email by Wednesday, September 15th if they were placed on the team.  Upper Arlington school district residents will receive priority over non-residents.    At that time swimmers that were placed on the team will be able to complete our on-line registration.
