How to Join the Sun Prairie Storm Swim Team

Step 1: The Evaluation Process.

The following dates are available for new swimmer evaluations:
August 23-25 (click here to register)

The evaluation will take ~15 minutes and will look at stroke technique, starts, and turns.  Keep in mind that not all skills are required for each age group, but it’s best to get a complete picture of a swimmer’s ability.  Evaluations take place at Sun Prairie High School.  Your swimmer will need a swimsuit, goggles, and towel. 

Following the evaluation, the coach will give you a copy of the evaluation along with the group placement for your swimmer.

  • If they aren’t ready for the team yet, we would be happy to recommend programs that would be the most beneficial to your swimmer.
    • For a 10&U swimmer, we're looking for a swimmer to do 25 yards of freestyle with side breathing in under :45, and 25 yards of backstroke in under :45
    • For an 11-12 swimmer, 50 yards of freestyle and backstroke, under :55 seconds
    • For a 13&O swimmer, 100 yards of each of the 4 strokes legally

Step 2: Review practice dates, locations, & prices.

Prices and dates for each session vary.  They can be found on the team info tab of the website.

Step 3: Register your swimmer for the team.

Step 4: Pick up the necessary equipment.

Each group has a few items that a swimmer will need for practice.  A list of the equipment can be found here.  Please have this for your first practice.  Items can be purchased at Simply Swimming in Madison (6649 University Avenue Middleton, WI 53562).  Note that Simply Swimming will also be at the annual meeting, held August 29th.
