Team Tryouts 

  • Swimmer must be able to swim 25 meters (the full length of the pool) unassisted, and must demonstrate 25 meters of both freestyle, and backstroke, without stopping.
  • If your swimmer knows how to swim breaststroke, or butterfly, our coaches would like to see those strokes. Neither of these strokes have to be perfect, but the swimmer must show forward motion.
  • If your swimmer knows how to perform dives into the pool, or flip turns off the wall, our coaches would like to see those skills. Neither of these skills have to be perfect.
  • If your swimmer does not know how to swim breaststroke, butterfly, perform dives into the pool, or do flip turns off the wall, they can still make the team. Our coaches will ultimately determine if your swimmer is ready to join our swim team.
  • New swimmer tryouts are free of charge, and are done by appointment only. Tryout sessions take approximately 20 minutes. To schedule an appointment please email, Head Swim Coach, Megan Maslowski, at moc.liamg@sehcaocskrahs

Two Week Trial

After your swimmer passes the tryout session, you have the option to have your swimmer find out what swim practice is like, before committing for the entire season. Your swimmer will be able to practice with the team during regular practice times for a total of two weeks, with no financial commitments.

There is a small fee of $25 for this two week trial option. After the two week trial period ends, you can either choose to no longer continue, or you can choose to sign your swimmer up for the entire the season. The $25 fee will not be subtracted from your swimmer’s total registration fees, if you choose to continue after the two week trial period ends.
