Tryouts are typically conducted during the first week of school. There will be an introductory meeting held on Wednesday - 8/11/21 at Oak Point Center for all enrolled students during their athletic period. Tryouts will be held on Thursday 8/12 AND Friday 8/13 for enrolled students during their athletic period.

During the tryout, swimmers will be evaluated on speed (series of timed swims), aerobic endurance (test sets), and strength of stroke (stroke & turn technique) throughout the tryout. Each swimmer will be scored on their performances and efforts throughout the tryout and then Varsity and Junior Varsity Teams will be determined.

Students MUST complete all required PISD Athletic Department Pre-participation Forms found under “Forms” on the team website PRIOR to the first day of school. Forms can be found online here: https://planoisd.rankonesport.com. On the first day of school, students must bring:
● A hard copy of your current Physical (dated AFTER 4/21/21) AND Medical History
● A hard copy of top swimming times for this calendar year (2021)

Contact Coach Harrington if you have any questions.
