All swimmers interested in joining DeKalb Aquatics Swim Team need to complete an evaluation. Evaluations are usually scheduled on Thursday and Saturday. Please contact our administrative assistant Caroline  

Evaluations will be administered by a member of the coaching staff in order to place the athletes into an appropriate training group.                                                                      

Each swimmer will be asked to perfom 1 start and a lap of each stroke. Swimmers that are trying out for Gold Groups and above may be asked to do swim an interval set or participate in a regularly scheduled practice.

Swimmers with previous experience swimming on a USA Swimming Club teams may not be placed without taking part in a formal evaluation. Questions regarding the DeKalb Aquatics evaluation process please contact Caroline at
