You will be required to register with Hickory Ridge Athletics (Link Here) before you will be able to try out.
We will be hosting 2 pre-season practice dates with 2 lanes available at the West Cabarrus YMCA. Supervision will be present from coaching staff, but will not be providing formal instruction at this time. This is a time for swimmers to warm up on their own and get ready for tryouts; participants will be able to talk to swimmers from previous seasons, while at pre-season practices.
Pre-Season Practice Dates:
Oct 21st 4:45-6PM
Oct 24th 4:45-6PM
Please note that attendance at preseason practices is not taken into account for final team roster decisions.
Tryouts will be taking place on 2 dates this year due to how the start of the swim season falls. YOU MUST HAVE REGISTERED ONLINE with Hickory Ridge Athletics (Link Here) TO TRYOUT. Please be ready to be in the water by 7:15 as we want to maximize the time we have this season for tryouts.
Each swimmer must swim a timed 50 of each stoke (Free, Fly, Breast, and Back) and a 100 IM.
All distances must be legal for start, swim, and turns.
