*All new swimmers must attend our standard preseason evaluation.
The evaluation session is designed to be fun and basic - we look for overall swimming ability; front crawl, back stroke, side flutter and recognizable breast stroke as well as comfort in deep water. This allows our coaches to place your swimmer in the optimal group based on age, swim level and scheduling commitment. Please refer to course descriptions for specific swim and synchro skill requirements. Swimmers should come prepared to swim, wearing a bathing suit and goggles, and have FUN meeting other new swimmers!
You will be able to register your swimmer at the front desk following the evaluation.
