Swim Team Skill Requirements

The coaching staff will conduct an evaluation of all swimmers to determine if swim team is the right place for your swimmer. The goal of the swim team is to prepare swimmers to compete in meets. We want to make sure that all swimmers are safe in doing so. We are looking to see if the swimmers have basic water survival skills. The coaches will be conducting the evaluations the first week of practice. The criteria we are looking for:

  1. Your swimmer does not need a flotation device at practice, as in a puddle jumper or water wings, to swim.

  2. You swimmer can jump off the side of the pool and get back to the side independently and safely.

*please know that when we meet with the coaches on May 16, they can give you more information about these requirements.

If the swimmer does not meet the two criteria, the coaches and board will recommend swim lessons this summer.

The Swim Team Board wants to keep all swimmers safe, the number one priority.
