AGE GROUP TRYOUTS

         
   
 
Annual Age Group Tryouts
 
Every July, we hold our annual age group tryouts.  Tryout swimmers (ages 6 to 13) will be asked to practice with one of our training groups, appropriate to age and ability.  Instead of having one specific "tryout date", we feel this is the best way for us to evaluate a swimmer.  Most importantly, this format allows the swimmer to see our team and coaches in a true practice atmosphere.  For information concerning Age Group Tryouts, please contact Coach Chris at [email protected]
 
2021 Age Group Tryout Information
 
Unfortnately, we have closed tryout requests for all age groups due to the overwhelming response and the number of spots available.  We do thank you for your interest in our swim team.  We wish we could take everyone, however, we are limited by pool space and practice time.     
 
Please Note
  • Swimmers must be legal in all four competitive strokes. 
  • We recommend you look at our Practice Group Descriptions.
  • All tryouts will be held at Regis Jesuit High School.
  • Swimmers and parents will be notified by email of our decision the first week of August (this is a tryout.....unfortunately, not everyone makes the team).
  • Our first practice of the 2021-2022 Short Course Season will begin Tuesday, September 7.
Tryout Evaluations
 
Our evaluations are based on:
  • Technical ability, judging all four strokes (IM mindset).
  • Fitness capacity.  We do understand some tryout swimmers might not be in the best physical condition, but we do like to see effort.
  • Potential!
  • Enthusiasm, confidence, and swimming with heart.
  • Willingness to pay attention and learn new technical skills.
  • Previous swim team experience.  Best times, if available.
  • Age, but most importantly, maturity.
