Vikings Swim Team
The Vikings Swim Team is dedicated to encouraging leadership and character growth, while achieving excellence in swimming. Vikings Summer Swim Team is upon us and is a great time for swimmers to get introduced to competitive swimming and refine and maintain their skills for the fall season!
Summer 2013 Tryouts
The first step to becoming a Viking is tryouts. All swimmers intending to join the Vikings for the summer season, including swimmers from the fall team, must try out.
Please note that spots on the Vikings are not guaranteed for any swimmer as space is limited.
10 and Under Tryouts: Tuesday, April 23, 5:30 - 8:30 pm
11 and Over Tryouts: Thursday, April 25, 5:30 - 8:30 pm
Everyone who tries out will be evaluated on-site. The results of the evaluation will be released to the listed contact given during tryouts by April 29, 2013. In all cases, a recommendation of instruction and/or team membership will be given.
10 and Under Tryouts: Coaches will be observing diving, freestyle and backstroke proficiency and some familiarity in breaststroke and butterfly
11 and Over Tryouts: Coaches will be seeking out proficiency in diving all four competitive strokes and turns
All swimmers will be timed and proficiency or lack of proficiency in any or all strokes and skills does not, in and of itself, disqualify or guarantee an offer to join the team.

Swim Meet Events
We are planning three meet events, happening approximately one month apart from each other. Meet events typically and traditionally occur on Saturday afternoons, but may sometimes occur on Sundays, weekday evenings or other times. Meets can take a couple hours and all swimmers, as members of the Vikings team, will be expected to stay for the duration of all meets to participate in events and to cheer on teammates.
