September 3 - March 14



All swimmers who have not participated in a swim meet for a competitive team either as part of NSSC, a high school team, the YMCA, or another member club of U.S.A. Swimming, must go through an evaluation.  This evaluation will take place during a two day free trial.  After the free practices swimmers will be asked to either take Level 4 or 5 lessons through UMD or will be granted permission to practice with the team.

Two Day Free Trail: We use the "two day free trial" to assess swimmers ability and make recommendations about where the swimmer should be placed.  Come to the beginning of any week day practice.
