TRYOUTS FOR RSD SWIM TEAM

 


 

Thank you for your interest in RSD Swim Team!

 

Due to limited programming and safety protocols related to covid, our monthly tryouts have been suspended. We are currently holding modified swim practices for active team members, but we are not able to accommodate new members at this time. Updates will be posted here when we have room for new members.

New Member Tryouts: For swimmers 12.5 years old and younger, your child will be asked to pass the minimum skills listed below:

  • 50 yards of freestyle with side breathing, in less than 1:30

  • 50 yards of backstroke, no time requirement

  • 25 yards of breaststroke and butterfly, no time requirement

Upon passing the evaluation, new members will be assigned to the appropriate training group and invited to start with the new month or be placed on the waitlist due to space limitations. 

 

If your athlete is 12.5 years or older and new to swimming: 

  • Minimum requirement to join the team for 12 and older swimmers is completion of a 500 Freestyle in under 9:00 and a demonstration of all 4 competitive strokes.   

  • If they meet the minimum requirements please send us an email detailing their swimming history.

Upon passing the evaluation, new members will be assigned to the appropriate training group and invited to start with the new month or be placed on the waitlist due to space limitations.

 

If you are transferring from another team:

  • RSD is considerate to our relationship with other teams in the LSC. We encourage open and transparent communication from you with your current coach prior to considering moving to RSD, as you may be able to work things out and stay with your team.

  • When contacting us, please include the following information: Your age, year in school, years with your club, any other club experience prior to the club you are with now. Additionally; your current practice schedule (days per week, length of swim practice, and length of land exercises). Please include your reason for inquiring about RSD if you are local.

If you have been notified that your child is ready to join our swim team, but do not have the registration link, please contact Coach Paul.
