Tryout Information

2018-19 BTHS Swim Team Tryouts

Dear Swimmer:
We want to welcome you to another great season of swimming.  Please make sure that you have complete all online paper work through the BT “My Athlete” portal.  If the paperwork is not completed by July 30th, 2018, you will not be able to train or tryout for the team.

Like any other team at BTHS there is a “tryout” period in order to make the team.  Below is the following schedule and tryout process. A friendly reminder to those who are trying out, “You must have knowledge of all four strokes (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Freestyle).”

Times will be added together to create an overall time.  These times, as well as the observations from the training sessions, will be the criteria for selection to the 2018-19 swim team. Not everyone will make the team.  Please remember that not making the team does not reflect, nor define, who you are or will be in life.  No Seniors or Juniors may be on the junior varsity squad.
