Helena Lions Tryout Information

We will be hosting a 3 day camp for any swimmers interested in joining the team.  This will be held at the East Helena Pool August 19-21.  The times will be: 4:30 pm—5:30 pm August 19, 4:30 pm—5:30 pm August 20, and 4:30 pm—5:30 pm August 21.

 

There is no need to register just come to the pool area at the ​East Helena Pool with your swimsuit, towel, water bottle, and goggles.  We ask that you show up 15 minutes prior to the start of tryouts to complete some brief paperwork and ensure that your child is ready to get in the water when tryouts begin.

The Coach(s) present during the tryout will work with your child to determine their current skill level in the four basic strokes (freestyle, breast stroke, back stroke and butterfly). In general, the Coaches are looking for the ability to swim at least 25 yards on their front and back with some sort of breathing pattern on their front. Each individual will be evaluated based on proficiency of their strokes compared to other swimmers their age.

We will also have informational packets and a parent meeting on Wednesday while the kids are swimming.

On Wednesday we will be having a BBQ at 5:30 pm in the park by the pool (JFK) and all are invited!
