TRYOUTS

Any returning swimmers who had participated on our 2021-2022 Fall/Winter or 2022 Spring/Summer programs do not need to tryout and may register beginning 8/2/22. Note: swimmers should register for the same group they participated in last; training groups will be finalized at the preseason coaches meeting and swimmers recommended to move groups will be notified. This allows us to arrange compatible training groups.

Current USA Swimming athletes from other teams considering a move to ours may bypass the tryout process (we have access to your times) by emailing us your intention.
