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.  Minimum requirements include the following

  • Proper breathing patterns for freestyle and butterfly
  • Knowledge of all 4 competitive strokes
  • Ability to swim all 4 strokes legally
  • Ability to swim consistently in freestyle for a minimum of 50 yards 

Swimmers with previous club or high school swimming experience can contact the SAC office directly.  Please email Courtney Werner at [email protected] 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 Tryout Online Sign-up Form and we will be in touch when specific dates are finalized


Fall Tryout Dates

Additional dates will be offered starting in late summer and throughout the fall portion of the season.  Dates may be limited due to the practice and meet schedules.  Some groups may have limited availability and coaches will communicate options to each family following the swimmer's evaluation.  Please revisit the website for additional dates and times.  New members are welcome to join the club throughout the season. 

Families will be contacted prior to each tryout date below with additional details for tryout procedures and an outline of guidelines that will be followed.
