- 2022-2023 Season
The season runs from October 28th – February 25th. Tryouts are held on October 28th to determine team members. Meets will begin in November and run through February.
- REQUIRED FORMS
All forms required for athletic team participation for Dublin City Schools can be found online on the Parent Dashboard at www.dublinschools.net. An “Emergency Medical” Form must be completed for each athletic season. All forms must be complete online by the start of the season.
A pre-participation physical for each athlete must be on file with the Athletic Department. The physical must have been completed within the past calendar year and must be submitted PRIOR the student being allowed to participate in any manner. This includes tryouts. If a physical is not on file the athlete WILL NOT be allowed to tryout, meaning he or she will not be on the team.
Pay-to-Participate ($50.00) must be paid by October 29th. (checks made payable to “Dublin City Schools”… NOT the Boosters) and can be turned in at the Mandatory Parent/Swimmer Meeting on November 6th. Pay-to-Participate fees may also be paid online via EZPay but must be paid by October 29th.
Tryouts will be held on October 28th, from 3:15-5:30pm
Swimmers are encouraged to be in their best shape possible and be prepared with suit, goggles and cap.
Exempt Swimmers: Returning state qualifiers and returning seniors will be exempt from required tryouts.
Disclaimer: Although these swimmers are guaranteed a position on the team, this does NOT coincide with the “swim-in” group, and is in no way indicative of which practice group an individual may be assigned to.
Exempt swimmers that wish to participate in tryouts to earn a position within the “swim-in” practice group will be permitted to do so. This decision must be communicated to head coaches prior to tryout day. By choosing to participate in tryouts the exempt swimmer understands that they are being considered for, but not guaranteed a position within the “swim-in” group.
The head coach reserves the right to change the conditions of exemptions any given year. The head coach reserves the right to without the privilege of trying out for the team if an individual’s behavior/actions have damaged the spirit or integrity of the team.
Swim-In Group: # TBD
Swim-Out Group: TBD - Swimmer consideration will be based on meeting minimum tryout requirements and skill level expectations, which are outlined below.
Tryout Structure & Expectations
Swimmers will be permitted approximately 20 minutes to do a warm-up of their choosing in the water.
Coaches are also able to provide a warm-up.
Swimmer must be able to complete 8x100 freestyle (consecutive) on a 1:20 base, at minimum.
Swimmer must be proficient in all 4 strokes - butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle.
Swimmer will complete 1x100 of each stroke off of the starting blocks for time, with rest provided in between.
Head coaches will send out tryout results via e-mail before 7:00pm of the following day.
These will be individualized results which will indicate one or both of the following:
1.) If the swimmer qualified for a position on the team.
2.) Which practice group the swimmer will be in.
Note: ALL returning swimmers will receive a communication that will notate which practice group they will be in.
If a swimmer earns a position within the “swim-in” group and would like to swim out at their own discretion, this individual must set-up a time to meet with the coaches and discuss an agreed upon plan for the season.
