CALLING ALL HOLY ANGELS SWIMMERS!

Tryouts will be a timed; therefore a certain level of swimming skill is required as our previous team members can recall during practices. We will do our best to prepare our swim team participants with all the valuable skills they need to be ready for swim meet. PLEASE NOTE: This is a competitive swim program; therefore, coaching will be focused on race skills.    As such practices are NOT swimming lessons like the ones being offered by the “Toronto Parks and Recreation programs”.   
If your child is interested in trying out, please complete and return the attached form  to the school by November 3rd, 2015. Forms will not be accepted after this date.   

 

TRYOUT DETAILS:

There will be two tryout days (see below). The coaching staff will contact you to confirm your child's try out date.  If we have not received your child’s permission form they will not be allowed to leave Holy Angels to tryout with the other students.  If there is an issue with the date chosen, please let us know.  Depending on capacity we may be able to accommodate you with a switch.  If you have not heard from the coaches by early November with a scheduled tryout time, do reach out to the contact below.
