Look at the 'Locations' tab to see where we swim! Look at the 'Pre Competition Groups' and 'Competition Groups' under the 'Groups/Try Outs' tab to learn more about the levels and locations that Select Swim offers.

Try-outs for the team involve the swimmer meeting one of our coaches and going through a brief swim where they demonstrate their swimming skills. Based upon the try-out, the coach recommends the work-out group best suited for the swimmer. Swimmers must be accompanied by a parent during the try-out. A photocopy of the swimmer's birth certificate, or other legal document showing the swimmer's full name and date of birth, needs to be provided to the team at the try-out.

USASwimming requires a photocopy of a birth certificate or other legal document stating the athlete’s legal name and date of birth be provided at try-outs.

When considering a swimming program ask about...

Flexibility- We recognize the importance of a kid being a kid. Among young swimmers there are high priority things like birthday parties, soccer games, scouts, etc. We encourage these activities and have a practice schedule that works with you.

Record of Achievement- The Select Team of Aquatic Racers in its short tenure has produced US Open, USA Swimming Junior Nationals, USA Swimming Futures Championships, and USA Swimming Sectional qualifiers.  In addition, our coaching staff has coached several Texas Age-Group Championships (TAGS) high point winners and event champions. 

Team Focus- Ours is to develop a program for each swimmer based on their skill, age and interest. It is our belief that swimming with the Select Team of Aquatic Racers develops many enduring life skills which include self discipline, goal setting, sportsmanship, teamwork, nutritional awareness, confidence, persistence, responsibility, time management, concentration, conditioning, and positivity.
