Swim Team Tryouts

Thank you for your interest in joining The Claremont Club Swim Team.

Tryout requirements:

Swimmer must be legal in all four competitive strokes; butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle.  Any swimmer that doesn’t have a solid foundation in all four strokes will be asked to get additional training before returning for another tryout.

Currently, a few of our training groups are at capacity for safe training. If a swimmer demonstrates legal strokes during the tryout, it does not guarantee a spot on the team. If the group that is suitable for the tryout is at capacity, we will add the swimmer to a waitlist.  TCC Swim will notify the family when a spot becomes available. 

To schedule a tryout you please complete the Tryout Assessment Form by clicking on the link below. Once you complete the form you will be contacted via email to schedule your tryout appointment.    

Dues and Fees:
$130.00 per month/swimmer
$   50.00 Beginning escrow fee
$   72.00 USA Swimming registration 
$   10.00 team transfer fee (if transferring from another team)

Booster Fee:
$300.00 1st child per year
$225.00 2nd and 3rd child per year
We typically charge half of Booster fee in October and remaining balance in November however, we are not charging Booster fees at this time.
