Interested in learning more and/or trying out?

If your swimmer is at least 6 years old and can swim some freestyle with side breathing and some backstroke, for 25 yards, they could be ready to join our team! 

Please EMAIL US and provide the following info: 

  1. Swimmer's NAME and AGE
  2. Level of experience with swimming
    • What level of lessons have they completed?
    • Have they participated on a summer league/rec team or a USA Swimming team?

Once we've received your info, one of our coaches will get back to you about scheduling a tryout.  Please complete the online Tryout Form prior to your tryout.


Tryouts with one of our coaches will last about 30-45 minutes. 

Swimmers should be prepared to swim in the outdoor pool and arrive with suit on under their clothes and with goggles and towel available. 

After your swimmer has been evaluated, you will be given one of three outcomes: 
  • your swimmer is ready to join the team and will be assigned to a squad.
  • your swimmer is ready but will need to be on a wait-list as their squad is currently full.
  • your swimmer needs to gain a few more skills and try out again in the future.

Once your swimmer has been assigned to an open squad and you are ready to join, please review the Fees and Commitments and complete the Online Registration.
