There are many opportunities throughout the year to tryout for TWST. Look under the "Join TWST" tab and then go to "swim trial dates" to see the list of upcoming opportunities. The Trials are always held at the CISD Natatorium at 19133 David Memorial Dr. (behind the Portofino shopping center)
Requirement for Tryouts:
All swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool unassisted demonstrating, at a minimum, freestyle and backstroke. There is NO tryout required to go into our Pre-TWST swim lessons.
Swim trials are offered during a 1 hour time frame. Please arrive on time and wait in the lobby (not on the pool deck). All swimmers will be taken to the pool all at once by a Coach for their evaluation. The coach will evaluate the swimmer's strokes and breathing technique. Have your swimmer ready to get in the water when you come to the NAT with suit, goggles and a towel.
The Coach will evaluate each swimmer and let the parent know which practice group they would be best suited for. The Membership Administrator will then go over the Registration packet with all the families at the same time and answer all questions. If your swimmer is recommended for our competitive team then you will be offered a one week free trial to see if it's a good fit for your family and your swimmer(s).
If you plan on participating, please email Carolyn Fenter at CFenter@itwst.orgto let me know to expect your child. It helps us to know the number of coaches that will be required. However, if you don't know until the last minute you are still welcome to show up.
Swim trials are limited to children 5 years and older. Younger children must enroll in our Pre-TWST lesson program.
We look forward to meeting your swimmers!
