Joining the Swim Team Step One: Tryouts

Doing a tryout is the first step in joining the team. This is a chance for the coach to see if the prospective swimmer is actually ready for swim team, and if so which level they will start at.

 

Tryouts for the swim team are held once or twice a month and are usually listed on the Meets & Events page. All interested swimmers must pass a tryout before registering with the swim team.

 

*Please note that not everyone who tries out makes the team. Wave has an open door policy and anyone not ready is encouraged to take any needed lessons and come back again for the next try out.

 

Admittance into the groups is as follows:

 

Explore 1: swimmers must be 7 years of age or younger, able to swim 1 length of backstroke and side breathing freestyle; additionally the coach must feel that the swimmer is water safe

Explore 2: swimmers are 8-10 years of age, able to swim 1 length of backstroke and side breathing freestyle and legal breaststroke; additionally the coach must feel that the swimmer is water safe

Challenge 1: swimmers are 8-10 years of age with 4 legal strokes and able to break 2:30 in a 100 IM

Challenge 2: swimmers are 9-12 years of age with 4 legal strokes and can complete a 50 free in 50 seconds or faster

Achieve 1: swimmers are 11-14 years of age, have 4 legal strokes and can complete a 100 free in 1:30 or faster

Athlete placement into a group is based on their age and ability. The coaches are the only ones qualified to make that determination.

 

Please note that Wave Aquatics is a competitive swim team, and that practice and meet attendance is expected.
