So, you are considering joining the Starfish Swim Club. We would like to let you know what to expect when you join us for try outs and swim evaluations.

Current Starfish Parents will be on hand to greet your family, have you sign in and collect your paperwork (see below). A Starfish Coach will have your swimmer demonstrate the competitive strokes to the best of his or her ability.  Each swimmer should come prepared with a swim suit, a swim cap and goggles. At the conclusion of the swim evaluation, the coach will speak briefly to the swimmer and parent(s) about squad placement. Coaches make placements based on the a swimmers' age and ability.  There will be time to ask any questions you might have of the parent volunteers.

In order to facilitate this process for the volunteers that run our try outs, we require that you bring the following paperwork to swim evaluations:
1)  Copy of Birth Certificate to be given to Starfish (this is required for USA Swimming Registration)
2)  Swimmer Evaluation form completed
3)  A USA Swimming Transfer form, completed, if you are transferring from another USA Swim Team

If your swimmer is given a place on a Starfish Squad please be prepared to complete the registration process within 2 days.  A Starfish Board Member will be in contact with you via email to help so that the USA Swimming Registration can be processed before the first day of practice. The USA Swimming Registration fee is collected within that 2 day period.  Club payment options will be discussed at the swim evaluation.  (There is no payment plan for swimmers that start swimming with Starfish during the Long Course season, but if your swimmer stays with the team there are payment plans which begin in September)

Please email Greg Antolick at [email protected] with any questions and to let us know that you are coming to tryouts.Thank you!
