Try Out and Time Trial Information

Our Goals as a Program!

Teach basic techniques
Teach team spirit
Prepare swimmers for competition
Teach team committment
Help swimmers achieve individual goals
Involve parents as volunteers in the program

Please understand that swim team is NOT a lesson program.  New swimmers will be evaluated during our try outs by our coaching staff. If we feel your child is not ready for our competitive swim team they will become eligible for our Junior Waves program or recommended to our swim lessons.
