Thank you for your interest in the New Fairfield AquaFlyers Swim Team. 

The New Fairfield AquaFlyers swim team program welcomes swimmers between the ages of 6 and 18. The program is held year-round and is comprised of 2 seasons: the short course season (September through March) and long course1) season (April through July). A swimmer can participate in one or both seasons during the year.

Transferring swimmers: Swimmers who have previous swim team experience and are interested in joining the AquaFlyers are welcome to contact us via email [email protected] A transfer might be possible at any time if capacity allows.

New Swimmers: Swimmers who are new to competitive swimming and interested in joining the team are invited to attend a tryout session. Tryouts are usually held prior to each season (March and August) at the New Fairfield High School Pool by appointment only.

During tryouts, coaches will individually evaluate each swimmer based on his/her knowledge of the 4 strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly), speed, attitude, age and previous swim experience. Athletes who are selected to join the AquaFlyers will be placed on one of 6 practice teams that match his/her ability and maturity. Depending on the practice team, swimmers will practice 3 to 6 times a week. 

To be an NF AquaFlyer you do not need to be a resident of New Fairfield.
