RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Children ages 7-12 can try competitive swimming for the first time or continue to grow as a competitive swimmer with the co-ed team at the in-house swim team tryouts in Ridgefield.
Students practice and refine all four competitive strokes (freestyle, breast, back and butterfly), learn proper starts, turns and dives, improve relay skills, and increase swim endurance. This program culminates in an intra-squad meet.
Swimmers should wear competition-style suits. Goggles and swim caps are recommended, but are not required. Participants must swim at Red Cross level five or higher or attend tryouts.
Spring tryouts are from 9-11 a.m. Sunday at Recreation Center Pool. The sessions are from 2-3 p.m. or 3-4 p.m. April 19 through June 14, with no class May 24 and a make-up class set for June 21, if needed, at the Barlow Mountain Pool.
The cost is $160 for members and $190 for non-members (eight classes). Registration begins at 9 a.m. Monday and is only available in person or by phone
