WHAT ARE THE SKILL REQUIREMENTS?

Swimmers will be evaluated on their endurance and stroke technique. Requirements vary by age but in general, they must successfully complete the following to be considered for placement on the swim team:

  • 100 yards continuous freestyle (4 laps short course)
  • 50 yards continuous backstroke (2 laps short course)
  • 50 yards continuous breaststroke (2 laps short course)
  • 2 x 25 yards butterfly (2 laps short course with a rest after each lap)

If your swimmer cannot yet complete the above requirements to join the swim team, please click on the "Swim Lessons" tab to join SwimAmerica or start private lessons!

 

WHAT TO BRING TO A TRYOUT?

  • bathing suit
  • goggles
  • swim cap- if possible

Please arrive at the NTC a few minutes before your appointment with Coach Alex. Let the front desk know you're here for a swim team tryout and they will send you through the lockerrooms to the pool deck where Coach Alex will meet you.
