How to Join the Sun Prairie Storm Swim Team

Step 1: Pick a day/time for an evaluation.

Email Coach Katie for an evaluation.  The evaluation will take ~15 minutes and will look at stroke technique, starts, and turns.  Keep in mind that not everything on the list is 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 recommend checking out the Madison Swim Academy.  MSA has a partnership with the Storm that allows your swimmer to refine some of the skills they may be lacking, at a reduced rate.  Just mention you’re working towards becoming a Storm swimmer and take your filled out application to receive the discount.

·         If you haven’t already seen minimum requirements for each group, you can find them here.

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

Prices and dates for each session vary.  The current session information (including fees and practice schedules) is on the back of the evaluation card you receive the day of, but you can find practice times here.  Fees can be found on the season session tab.

Step 3: Register your swimmer for the team.

If the registration window is open, you can find it in two different places: 1) on the page where you saw the detailed prices and 2) on the left tab, under “System”, a button that says “Start Registration,” Here you’ll go through all the steps of joining 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).

Stuck or confused?  Email Coach White if you have questions about practices or swim groups.  Email Adam Snook if you have issues with registering.  Email Michelle Perko if you have questions about financials.
