We at PEAK are glad you have an interest in joining our swimming family. In order to join the team, there are a few steps that must be completed:
- Contact Us – Establish a Tryout Date: To join Peak, any new swimmer will first need to pass a tryout with the team as well as their desired or targeted training group. To set up a tryout, you will need to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Coach Chris, our Age Group Director, directly at CoachChrisPeak@gmail.com.In your email please include the following: Swimmer’s name, age, and a brief description of their swimming careers thus far – including best competition times, current team, levels completed or concurrently enrolled in a swim school or lessons program. It is important that we have this information so that we can more accurately assess which of our training groups would be the best suited for your swimmer. We will check our training calendar and work with you to establish a tryout date with the team.
- The Tryout: To be invited to join our team, each swimmer must successfully complete a tryout. Each tryout consists of two parts. First, as a minimum requirement, all new swimmers must be able to swim all 4 competitive strokes (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Freestyle) legally for a full 25-yard lap each. Second, after the initial swim test, new swimmers will then be asked to complete a full practice with their targeted training group. Each swimmer will be evaluated by the group’s lead Coach. As long as the new swimmer can keep up with the training group with little difficulty or interruption to the flow of the normal practice, they will then be invited to join the PEAK team. Training equipment required for each group will vary and will be included in the email correspondence.
- Registering: Only after being formally invited to join the team each swimmer will need to download, complete, and turn in a Peak Team Handbook/ Registration Packet. This year’s Swimmer Handbook/Registration Form can be found here (link). The completed form can then be turned in by either emailing it to email@example.com or bringing a hard copy to the next PEAK practice that you attend.
Once registered your family will officially be a part of the PEAK FAMILY!
