Registration and Tryouts
RETURNING SHARKS: Registration generally opens around March 1st. Please review the new practice schedule, meet and volunteer policies when deciding whether to join us again. Returning swimmers from the 2017 season will not be required to tryout.
TRYOUTS and NEW Swimmer Registration: New swimmers may register online around April 1st each year. Tryouts for new swimmers will take place May 5, 2018 - 12-2pm at the Mountain Park Aquatic Center. Information regarding the new family tryout process will be available in February 2018.
During tryouts swimmers are expected to be able to swim the freestyle stroke across the full 25 yards of the pool unassisted. If swimmers are unable to swim the length of the pool unassisted, the coaches will recommend that they spend the year in lessons to prepare for next year. The swim team is very popular and new swimmers will only be able to tryout on new swimmer tryout days. All swimmers are expected to participate in team practice days and compete in swim meets.
Equipment for tryouts: All children need to wear a swimsuit and ideally googles. If your child has long hair you may want to bring a swim cap (MPST recommends caps for all swimmers). Please bring a towel.
