SPY New Swimmer Evaluations Short Course 2020-21

Due to the restrictions in place due to COVID-19, the SPY Swim Team will not be adding new members to start the 2020-21 Short Course season. New athletes interested in joining SPY can still be evaluated for the team and placed on a waitlist should a spot on the team become available.

If you are interested in having an athlete evaluated, please first fill out this google form with the appropriate information included to be added to the waitlist. You will be contacted by Head Coach Alex Totura within 24 hours of filling out the google form in regards to scheduling an evaluation.

Evaluations take about 10 minutes to complete depending on the age of the athlete. Athletes will be asked to demonstrate all 4 competitive strokes to the best of their ability (Butterfly, Breaststroke, Backstroke, and Freestyle) as well as any age appropriate skills (flip turns for example). Please remember that evaluations can not guarantee placement on the team at this time, but athletes approved for the team and added to the waitlist can be added if/when spots become available on the team. 

For more information on swim lessons and the Jr. SPY program through the YMCA please contact Tara Bosaw, tbosaw@springfieldymca.org, and she can answer questions regarding those offerings in the YMCA lesson program.
