Tryouts

2021 - 2022 Competitive and Waves programs 

Come be a part of NYAC and train with the best! 

(If you were registered with NYAC in 2020 or 2021 you do not need to attend a tryout as your swimmer already has a placement) 

 


As we move into Step 3 we are working on confirmation and direction from our pool facilities for programming next year. 

We will shortly have available our 2021-2022 Schedule, host tryouts, and be able to open registration.

NYAC offers  2 youth swimming program streams that have been servicing the North York and GTA Communities for over 60 years. 


Waves

  • is our development team where swimmers are taught the four competitive strokes, emphasizing mastering the kicks. We also introduce swimmers to flip-turns, diving, and the basics of racing.

What are we looking for in the Waves Program?

  • Swimmers aged 6-12
  • The ability to swim 25m (1 full lap of a pool) in front crawl without stopping
  • A love for swimming, the willingness to try their best and take direction from a coach

 


Competitive Stream

  • For and Swimmers aged 6-18 that are interested in going further in the sport of competitive swimming.  We welcome swimmers that are just starting out with competitive swimming all the way to the National and International swimmers. 

What are we looking for in the Competitive  Program?

  • At least 3 types of strokes must be mastered: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and knowing how to do the dolphin kick for butterfly.
  • Is the swimmer TRAINABLE? Do they listen attentively?  Do they respond to instructions and follow through?
  • Is the swimmer DETERMINED?  Do they have a desire to be a part of a team at NYAC?  Can they function within a larger group of swimmers?  Do they want to get better? Do they have the confidence and desire to compete?  Will they attend the program more than 80% of the time?  
  • Are you INTERESTED?  Does your family want to be a part of the NYAC community?  Do you want your child to compete?  Are you able to commit?  NYAC is a not-for-profit Club, and when you commit your swimmer to NYAC, you are committing to volunteer hours at swim meets and some of those swim meets are not meets that your child will be at.
