    Parents, as a safety concern, all swimmers must be able to meet the following requirements to become a member of the Swim Team, practice and compete in swim meets.

    Swimmers need only attend one day, to tryout. It takes approximately 10 minutes per swimmer. Meet the coaches at the pool at 6:30pm, on the day that best fits your schedule. Coaches will assess the swimmer’s skills and appropriately place them on the Swim Team, Development Team or recommend swim lessons. 

    **Due to the limited number of swimmers allowed per lane in practices, for safety measures, there is a limit to the size of the team.

    Ages

    5 & 6yrs - 1 lap freestyle with some form of breathing to the side, body horizontal in water.  - Float on back for 5 seconds w assistance       - Tread water 5 seconds

    7yrs-18yrs - 2 laps: 1- free, 1-back, breast or butterfly with good form                  - Float independent on back for 5 seconds - Tread water 5 seconds

    Swimmers who are near completion of skill requirements and/or require strength and conditioning prior to joining the rigors of the swim team practice will be invited to join the Development Team. Swimmers who the coaching staff believes are still too weak in their strength, abilities and stroke efficiency will be guided to the Swim Lessons in preparation for the Development Team.
