Swimmer Ability & Assessment

A swim assessment event is scheduled for all NEW swimmers (including new siblings).

At the start of swim practice, swimmers must be water-safe, able to swim unsupported front crawl and back crawl, float or glide unsupported on front and back, explore deep water using bobs or other underwater swimming, turn over from front to back and back to front.  If it becomes apparent to the coach that any child has not reached this level, he/she will be removed from the team with a full registration refund. It is suggested that a swimmer in this situation take additional swim lessons to reach this level and apply to rejoin the team the following year.  The coaches will assess all swimmers during the first week also.
