Only one parent per swimmer please! Space on deck is limited and we ask that each swimmer comes with only one parent.

Once you get to the pool, come to the front desk and tell the receptionist that you are there for the NASA Tryouts. If you have registered for our first slot (4:30-4:50pm or 11:30-11:50am) you can come to the pool directly (thru the locker rooms). If you have registered for our second time slot (5:00-5:20 or 12:00-12:20), you MUST wait in the lobby. The NASA coaches will come get you.

Places will be offered after all swimmers have had the opportunity to be evaluated.
