Mini Flyer and New 8 & Under

Tryouts/Evaluations

Tryouts are for all New & Returning Mini Flyers and also for all new 8 & Under swimmers joining FPST.  Swimmers will be evaluated and placed in the group that best fits their ability.  If your swimmer is currently in Spring Swim Clinic at Forest Park, he/she does not need to tryout.

Mini-Flyers is designed for the purpose of preparing children 3 years old by January 1st through 8 years old to advance to the swim team.  Mini coaches will work with up to 3 children at a time.  All potential Mini-Flyers will need to attend a tryout BEFORE the session starts. 

Online registration must be complete prior to trying out*.   There are a limited number of available spots for Spring Mini-Flyers.   We will be able to accommodate a larger number of younger swimmers during the summer session.  The goals of the Spring session are to graduate Mini-Flyers to the team for the summer.

Tryouts are on: 

           3/15    5:15 pm -7:15 pm   

3/29    9:00 am -12:00 pm
