2018 Tryouts

Due to the continuously growing size of the Belterra Marlin Swim Team, we will be having tryouts for the 2018 season.  If your swimmer was on the 2017 Belterra Marlin Swim Team and age 7 or up, they will not need to try-out.  If your swimmer is in the 6 & under age group OR new to the Belterra Marlin Swim Team, they will need to try-out at the Dripping Springs YMCA on April 22 or April 27.  ALL new swimmers and swimmers ages 6 & under will need to sign-up for a time slot at SignUp Genius Tryouts.  You MUST be registered with the Belterra Marlin Swim team BEFORE signing up for tryouts.  

8-under Criteria:

To join the Belterra Marlin Swim Team, a swimmer must demonstrate a basic crawl (“freestyle”) stroke. Eyes must be underwater for a good portion of the swim (other than when the swimmer is breathing). Pulling on the lane line or jumping from the bottom is not acceptable. While the swimmer may take a brief rest on the wall, the swimmer must demonstrate confidence at getting themselves from one point to another. The swimmer must be completely water safe and need no aid to get across the 25 yard pool. The total time allowed to elapse from start to finish is one minute. The coach has full discretion on deciding if the swimmer is ready for the Marlins swim team.

9 and up Criteria:

To join the Belterra Marlin Swim Team, a swimmer must demonstrate a basic crawl (“freestyle”) stroke. Eyes must be underwater for a good portion of the swim (other than when the swimmer is breathing). Pulling on the lane line or jumping from the bottom is not acceptable. The swimmer must swim the full length of 25 yards without resting on the wall. The swimmer must be completely water safe and need no aid to get from one side to the other. The total time allowed to elapse from start to finish is forty five seconds. The coach has full discretion on deciding if the swimmer is ready for the Marlins swim team.

There will be no refunds, unless your swimmer is unable to complete the requirements during the try-outs
