The Webster BlueFins invite youths ages 6 and up to try competitive swimming during a two week swim trial. The trial is designed for swimmers with or without previous competitive swimming experience. Swimmers must be able to swim at least 25 yards freestyle or back stroke without stopping or assistance. We hold two trial swims during the season - September and January - location will be noted on the calendar. Each session starts with a water safety evaluation on a designated Saturday, followed by 2 weeks of swimming (Monday through Thursday). The trial swim is a great chance for the swimmers to interact with the coaches and other swimmers and also get a good feel for the sport of swimming. After the two weeks, your swimmer can decide if he or she would like to join as a full time member. The trial is FREE of charge.

For up to date practice schedule, Trial swimmers should check the CALENDAR or inquire with a coach for specifics.

For families doing the trial, if you decide that the BlueFins is a good fit for your swimmer, please check with a coach at the end of the trial swim period for the appropriate practice group placement for your swimmer prior to registering for the team.

For currently registered USA or YMCA swimmers, please contact a club representative for other trial swim options outside of the designated sessions.
