Illinois Swimming

Tryouts are now open for the Spring swim season at CLSC! If you are interested in joining the CLSC community, please sign-up for one tryout slot using the following links:

February 24th, 2023

March 31st, 2023

April 3rd, 2023

Tryouts will be approximately fifteen minutes long and are open for all levels of experience and proficiency. Your swimmer will be asked to complete a 25 freestyle, 25 backstroke, 25 breastroke, and 25 butterfly. Between each 25 yard swim, they will be allowed a break. In order to be considered, the swimmer must be able to complete the freestyle and backstroke portions of the tryout. During freestyle, the swimmer must demonstrate consistent side breathing technique. Depending on demonstrated proficiency, they may also be asked to demonstrate racing starts. 

The tryouts will begin in the deep end of the pool, so swimmers must also be comfortable in deep water (10 feet). Almost every pool we have a swim meet at will be at least 10 feet deep, so this is an important expectation. 

There are a limited amount of tryout slots, so please sign-up as soon as you can! Each slot can only accomadate one swimmer. Slots are first-come-first-serve. If there is enough demand, we may potentially add more tryout dates, so keep an eye out for that going forward! 

We will only accept a limited number of registrants depending upon current member retention, and decisions regarding a swimmer's participation on the team will not be made on the pool deck. If you have any additional questions, please contact our head coach Logan Rogers at [email protected]


Returning swimmers currently registered with the program need not tryout.
