Q: How do I register my son/daughter for tryouts?
A: SIGN UP via the Sign Up Genius link is required. You will need to review the tryout handbook that is included on the Sign Up Genius page before arrival.
Q: Can I sign-up for the team prior to the tryouts?
A: Swimmers must attend tryouts to verify that they meet the minimum requirements to be eligible for the team. If there are less numbers of openings in an age group and gender than there are number of children who tryout, we will take the more advanced swimmer(s).
Q: What can I expect when I come to the tryout?
A: When you arrive at your tryout, you will be greeted by a Team Parent Board Member who will ask you to check in your swimmer. We will introduce the staff, briefly describe the tryout process and escort your child to the tryout area of the pool. We ask that parents wait in the bleachers during the tryout period. Coaches will call your child's name when it is their turn to tryout. They will be asked to perform the skill or stroke. After a child completes his/her tryout, they are free to go home. COVID NOTE: Please look for more detailed instructions due to County and City COVID 19 protocols for the 2021 Tryout Sessions. These will be shared directly with those families once they have secured a tryout spot.
Q: When will we know the results of the tryouts?
A: Results will be posted on the Woodcreek SeaWolves website on March 17th.
Q: Once a swimmer makes the team, does the swimmer need to tryout again next year?
A: Each family is required to volunteer a minimum of 14 volunteer hours during swim meets. If the family volunteer requirements have been met, swimmers in good standing do not have to tryout again next year.
Q: How do I know how many spots are open in each age group?
A: Available openings in each age group will be posted on the home page of the Woodcreek SeaWolves website.
Q: How many swimmers attend tryouts every year? How competitive is it to make the team?
A: The number of swimmers attending tryouts varies from year to year. There are usually more openings in the younger (6 and under, 7-8) age groups and the older (15-18) age group.
Q: What if I missed the tryouts this year?
Q: My child is currently 6 years old and turns 7 at the end of April. What age group will he/she tryout for: 6 and under or 7-8?
A: The age group that the swimmer competes in is determined by the swimmer's age as of June 15th.
