Q.  Is it ok for my child to play in tournaments or game days if they are new players?
A.  Yes! We encourage all athletes to come play with us on game days and tournaments since they are fun and a great way for a child to learn the sport. Generally those in the Bronze level and up compete in tournaments. We send out emails announcing tournaments and the tournament events list can be found on our events calendar. Athletes in the Swim2Score and Intro program may particpate in tournaments if invited by a coach.
