Try Outs for New Swimmers!
BTW Hornets Swim Team Try Outs
Wednesday September 2nd
4:00 p.m. - please arrive by 3:45 p.m.
Swimmers: you must wear a mask or face covering while not in the water. Arrive suited up and ready to swim, bring goggles if you have them.
Try outs will be closed - only swimmers will be allowed into the pool area. Parents will have to wait outside or in their cars. The try out may take approximately 30 minutes.
The pool doors are located on the east side of the main school building. Turn onto N. Trenton Avenue off of E Apache St - follow N. Trenton straight into the bus loop - the pool doors will be on your right before you hit the turnaround. Wait for your student to be called out of the car by one of the Booster Club parents who will be taking temperatures and asking some COVID screening questions.
Once they’ve been screened, the student can enter the pool area and find a place to sit and put their things on the bleachers, physically distanced from others. Social distancing must be followed at all times.
The coaches will be the only other people in the pool area.
Only 1 swimmer per lane will try out at one time.
They will need to demonstrate the ability to swim a 100 meter Freestyle without stopping. They will also be asked to swim the other three strokes - backstroke, butterfly, and breaststroke - for at least 25 yards or more, and to try flip turns and diving off the blocks to assess their skill level.
Swimmers will be notified later that same day with the results of their try out.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
We look forward to seeing you!
