Join the Blazers! 

The Evaluation Process

All prospective Kansas City Blazer athletes must participate in a new swimmer evaluation before registering. This evaluation process allows our coaching staff to place swimmers in the appropriate practice group based on their current skill and long-term development and success.

Each evaluation typically will include the athlete swimming one lap of each of the four competitive strokes of freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and demonstrating their current understanding of starts and flip turns. For advanced swimmers, we may ask the swimmer to swim a little more. After a group evaluation and recommendation by our coaching staff, swimmers will be able to register for the appropriate Blazer program. Most evaluations take approximately 30 minutes. 

Upcoming evaluations are listed below. Please allow for 10 minutes to check-in and prepare your swimmers before the start of the evaluation.  Swimmers should come equipped with a swimsuit and a pair of goggles. 

Sign up for an evaluation. Once the evaluation sign up has been opened you will recieve an email with all evaluation information and have an opportunity to sign up before it's opened to the public at large.

Please contact us with questions.  

Once placed and registered, parents can find the most frequently asked questions in the Parent Handbook.
