Nashville Aquatic Club
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 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 ages 5-18 years old 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 lap of freestyle in order to be eligible for placement trials. This is not an evaluation for swim lessons.
Before the evaluation you will need to commit to a week that works best for your family to attend a placement trial. Please be sure to sign up for your preferred week, and child's age group based on their current age. If you have multiple athletes to sign up, please be sure to do those within the corresponding age group(s).
The safety of our coaches and athletes is paramount, and during this time with social distancing guidelines and facility procedures, we will be assigning swimmers to a specific day/time for their evaluation. Should you have multiple swimmers, we will do our best to bring those age groups in at similar times, but cannot guarantee as we have very clear guidelines on swimmers per lane and within each group that we must adhere to during this time.
In this sign up you will need to include information to help us get them in for an evaluation. Upon completion, you will recieve a confirmation email with a waiver and details leading up to the date/time once assigned.
You will also receive an e-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.
