Join the Select Team of Aquatic Racers!
We hold tryouts every evening at 7:15pm at our pool in The Colony.
No need to make a reservation, just show up and report to the coach on deck. Please bring a copy of swimmer's birth certificate to the try-outs.
The Select Team of Aquatic Racers have OPEN TRY-OUTS every night for swimmers 5-18 years of age wishing to take that next step in swimming at the above location. Select Swim offers a variety of programs including pre-competititve classes, structured age-group and national level practices for young swimmers interested in year-round swimming.
Try-outs for the team involve the swimmer meeting one of our coaches and going through a brief swim where they demonstrate their swimming skills. Based upon the try-out, the coach recommends the work-out group best suited for the swimmer. Swimmers must be accompanied by a parent during the try-out. A photocopy of the swimmer's birth certificate, or other legal document showing the swimmer's full name and date of birth, needs to be provided to the team at the try-out.
USASwimming requires a photocopy of a birth certificate or other legal document stating the athlete’s legal name and date of birth be provided at try-outs.
When considering a swimming program ask about...
Flexibility- We recognize the importance of a kid being a kid. Among young swimmers there are high priority things like birthday parties, soccer games, scouts, etc. We encourage these activities and have a practice schedule that works with you.
Record of Achievement- The Select Team of Aquatic Racers in its short tenure has produced US Open, USA Swimming Junior Nationals, USA Swimming Futures Championships, and USA Swimming Sectional qualifiers. In addition, our coaching staff has coached several Texas Age-Group Championships (TAGS) high point winners and event champions.
Team Focus- Ours is to develop a program for each swimmer based on their skill, age and interest. It is our belief that swimming with the Select Team of Aquatic Racers develops many enduring life skills which include self discipline, goal setting, sportsmanship, teamwork, nutritional awareness, confidence, persistence, responsibility, time management, concentration, conditioning, and positivity.
