Head Coach: Megan Maslowski
Assistant Coaches: Kevin Hardy, Kelly Brainard, Chris Gebhart, Morgan Newell, Jacob Nelson and Mark Mellon.

Try-Outs

Swimmer must be able to swim 25 meters (full length of the pool) front crawl/free style and backstroke, without stopping. If the swimmer knows how to swim breast stroke, butterfly, perform dives and turns off the wall, the coaches would like to see those skills as well. None of these skills have to be perfect, but the swimmer must show forward motion. If the swimmer does not know how to dive, swim breast stroke, butterfly, or do a flip turn at the wall, they can still make the team. The coaches will ultimately determine if the swimmer can join the team. New swimmer try-outs are free of charge and done by appointment only. To schedule an appointment please email, Coach Megan, at sharkscoaches@gmail.com try-out will take approximately 20 minutes.

Two Week Trial (Optional)

After your child passes the try-out, your child has the option to find out what swim practice is like before committing to the team for the season. Your child will practice with the team during their regular practice time. There is a small fee for this option. After the two week trial period ends, you can either choose to not continue, or you can sign your child up for the entirety of the season. The $25 fee will NOT be subtracted from your total due for the season if you choose to continue after the trial period ends.

Fee: $25
