New Swimmer Tryouts

The tryout is an evaluation process that generally involves a one-on-one interaction between a coach and your swimmer. Swimmers must have some basic skills to participate with the makos like the ability to swim 25 yards without stopping, floating on their front and back, treading water, and kicking with a board. Tryout dates will be determined. Swimmers must bring swim suit and goggles.

Tryouts will be held Tuesday, May 15, from 6:30-7:30 PM
