Interested in JOINING OUR TEAM?

UPAC is for swimmers ages 6-18 years old who are passionate about swimming and have a desire to train and compete. Interested swimmers must go through a swim try out. The swimmer’s skill level and age will determine their group placement.  

Swimmers should have a basic knowledge of all four competitive strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. The try out consists of a warmup swim of 4 lengths then 1 timed and observed length (25 yards) of each of the four competitive strokes. (All tryouts will be held at Curtis Aquatic Center at Curtis High School in University Place.) There is no charge for this assessment. 

At a minimum, new swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards (one pool lengths) efficiently using crawl stroke (freestyle) with side breathing, backstroke and have stamina to swim for 45-min to 1 hour non-stop during practices.

Depending on lane space availability, we offer a ONE WEEK FREE TRIAL to all new swimmers to help make a confident decision about joining UPAC.

Please schedule a tryout prior to registration by contacting the membership coordinator at [email protected] 

Note: Several of our practice groups are presently full and have a waiting list. A try out does not guarantee placement in a training group.

You are also welcome and encouraged to stop by the pool and watch our practices and speak with our coaches, but we ask that you arrange a visit in advance by emailing [email protected]
