Thank you for your interest in our program! Please read through the following information in order for your athlete to have a positive experience at the 2018-19 NAC Placement Trials.
Through this process you will find information on being placed on either the NAC Competitive Team, the SwimFit program, or the PreComp program. Athletes 12 years old and younger planning to attend an evaluation for any of these programs should register through this system prior to attending. All athletes must arrive wearing a swim suit, with a cap and goggles.
Before coming to an evaluation it is important to note that attending a placement trial does not guarantee that your athlete will be placed in one of the NAC swim programs. The NAC Placement Trial is an evaluation to determine the best fit for your athlete and their continued progress as a swimmer.
*Please note that all swimmers must be able to swim a half lap of freestyle in order to be eligible for placement trials. This is not an evaluation for swim lessons.
Upon arrival to the evaluation you will need to fill out an informational sheet to help us better understand your athlete's prior swimming experience. You will also receive a packet detailing the various programs that NAC offers. Please read through this so you have a clear idea of the potential opportunity that your athlete could have with NAC.
Whether you are interested in the Competitive Team, PreComp, or SwimFit, the NAC Placement Trial is the first place to start. Each athlete attending the placement trials will work with an experienced member of NAC's coaching staff to determine the best area and avenue for your child to achieve success. Athletes will go through a series of swimming and learning skills with a race component at the end of the evaluation.
Placement emails will be sent out to all athletes after the completion of all of our Placement Trial dates. Coaches will not know at the placement trials the exact placement of athletes in attendance. More information will be distributed in the placement emails detailing the specifics of your child's group placement.
