New Swimmer Evaluations 2022-23

Brenda Morelock

Swimmers need to have an evaluation scheduled by appointment. We will not evaluate any swimmers who do not have an appointment.

Potential Sharks Families,

Below is information regarding our upcoming evaluations. Please read this over carefully.

1. Swimmers need to have an evaluation scheduled by appointment. We will not evaluate any swimmers who do not have an appointment.

2. Please arrive ten minutes early for your swimmers scheduled evaluation. This will give coaches time to collect evaluation forms and check swimmers in.

3. Please have one evaluation form per swimmer. Please only fill out the top/highlighted portion of the form. These forms will be provided at the evaluation.

4. Each 45-minute session will be similar to a practice. This will give coaches an opportunity to observe swimmers strokes and how well swimmers listen to instruction.

We strongly recommend the following:

All 7 to 9 year olds should be able to complete multiple laps (25 yards) of freestyle (crawl stroke) and backstroke without stopping. Having some knowledge of butterfly and breaststroke is helpful.

All 10 to 12 year olds should know all four competitive strokes; butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle (crawl stroke). Further, they should be able to complete multiple laps in each of these strokes.

All 13 to 18 year olds should know all four competitive strokes; butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle (crawl stroke). These swimmers need to be able to complete a 200 yard freestyle and a 200 yard IM. Further, they should be able to complete multiple laps of butterfly, backstroke and breaststroke.

Having past competitive swimming experience, summer league, high school, YMCA or USA Swimming is very helpful.
