KC Tidal Waves New Swimmer Evaluation THIS SUNDAY
We will have a New Swimmer Evaluation this Sunday, May 14 at 1pm – 2:30pm at the indoor pool at Burkwood Swim & Racquet Club.
Who: Any NEW swimmer to Team or any child interested in joining Rising Waves Pre-Team. Even if you have already signed your child up for Swim Team, if they are new this year, we’d like you to come so that the coaches are able to confirm they are ready for Team.
Sign Up: In order to make the evaluations as smooth as possible, please sign up here so that we know how many will be attending.
What to bring: Come in your bathing suit ready to swim. Please bring goggles, a towel and a change of clothes for after if you would like.
When: Sunday, May 14 at 1pm – 2:30pm. Please come sometime during that time frame as your schedule allows. Evaluations should not take long so please plan to stay until your child is done.
If you can not make it this Sunday, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. There is currently no make up date scheduled but we can keep you informed on next steps.
Evaluation criteria: In order to be on the Tidal Waves swim team, the child must be able to swim the length of the pool unassisted. The Rising Waves Pre-Team is geared towards children that are close to swimming the full length but can’t quite make it just yet. Children on Pre-Team must be able to demonstrate that they can swim most of the length of the pool (maybe stopping once or twice), ability to comfortably place their face in the water, ability to jump in (and come up unassisted), and must exhibit some attempt at a stroke in order to participate. Please note, the Rising Waves Pre-Team is NOT swim lessons and your child maybe asked to seek additional training prior to participation in either Tidal Waves Swim Team or Rising Waves Pre-Team. The Coaches will make the determination on final placement of each swimmer.
As a reminder, Swim Team practices will begin Monday, May 22 and Pre-Team practice will begin Tuesday, June 20. If your child has already registered for Swim Team but it is determined that they are a better fit for Rising Waves Pre-Team, refunds will be issued for the differing amount.
We look forward to meeting our new swimmers this Sunday! Please reach out with any questions.
