Join SAC Today!

New swimmers and families interested in joining Scottsdale Aquatic Club are welcome to attend one of our summer tryouts listed below.  Swimmers will be evaluated by members of the SAC coaching staff and placed in a practice group based on their age, skill, and endurance level. 

The tryout is open to swimmers ranging in age from 6 years to 18 years old.   Prior swimming experience is encouraged to ensure the swimmer is ready for a year round competitive environment.  Recommended experience includes, but isn't limited to, swim lessons, competitive rec team, or swim school.  

Swimmers with previous club or high school swimming experience can contact the SAC office directly.  Please email Courtney Werner at with your swimmer's name, age, name of their club/high school, and a list of their top events/times.   The division director will review the information and place the swimmer in a group without the need to attend a tryout.

Registration for an upcoming tryout is easy.  Complete the Online Sign-up Form and select from one of our fall dates listed below.
