Here’s how you can become a part of the Blue Fin’s Team!
1. The first step is to contact the Blue Fins. Many families arrange time to meet at the pool with one of our coaches to learn first-hand about our team. The Punta Gorda branch holds try outs on Tuesdays, Thursday at 5:00 p.m. at pools. Punta Gorda pool is located at the South County Regional Park and Port Charlotte is located on the campus of Port Charlotte High School.
2. All swimmers must complete a registration form, a medical release form, code of conduct form, and turn in a copy of the child’s birth certificate. If a new member has competed for another USA Swimming team in the previous four months, a transfer form must also be completed.
3. Our coaches will want to meet the swimmer first hand. The coach may want to watch the athlete swim in order to place them in the appropriate training group. Coaches will simply be choosing the most effective training group for each swimmer.
4. Start having fun!
There are 2 branches of CCS Blue Fins:
Babcock Ranch & Punta Gorda
