Fall 2022 Tryouts and Registration

Fall Session is now full!

September 6 - December 22

Practices Monday-Friday


New Swimmers

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 6:30-7PM: TRYOUTS for new swimmers. New swimmers MUST register by August 31 so we can plan adequately for coaches and lifeguards. Swimmers will check in then enter the pool at 6:30PM if they are trying out for the first time. New swimmers will be required to complete a short swim test (warm up, a few laps with and without kickboard, down 25 freestyle, back 25 backstroke) before joining the team. If for some reason your child is not ready for Sea Lions, you will not be charged.


Returning Swimmers

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 5:45-7PM: Check in/first day of practice for new and returning swimmers. Easiest way to register is by filling out online form below, then arrive on this day to check in. Also a great chance to meet some Board members and ask any questions you may have. Swimmers will enter the pool at either 6PM or 7PM, depending on which session they are in. You will be emailed to let you know which session you are in!

Summer session runs 16 weeks.

This session will have two practice times for Developing and Intermediate swimmers, either 6PM or 7PM start time. Coaches will determine your swim level at registration. Preferred practice time can be chosen on the sign up form, below. Please note that times are subject to minor changes based on enrollment numbers.

Sea Lions is a competitive swim team with a family friendly atmosphere. If you are interested in swim lessons, please visit the city pool programs website HERE.
