In the tryout we will ask your child to swim one lap of each stroke depending on their ability. In between laps we will give them feedback and stroke corrections and ask them to apply the correction. We will finish it off with a dive from the side. Be sure to let them know what to expect. The skills we will review are our way of determining their group placement and skill level. We place swimmers in swim groups based on skill and age and their ability to keep up with the pace of the group.
Some key skills for our introductory group (Mini-Blue) are listed below:Comfortably swim 25 yards of freestyle, backstroke & breaststrokeFreestyle with side breathingBackstrokeBreaststroke kick Fly/Dolphin Kick For more detailed information of each group please visit our website and click on the "Athlete Registration" tab.
In addition to the skill level we also take a swimmers age into consideration. Swimmers 10 & Under are ideal candidates for the swim team and will be prioritized by age and skill level.
