Team Eligibility and Try-Outs
The Cane Bay Krakens welcome swimmers from any town and school. The team is for anyone ages 8 to 18 who can swim at least one length of the pool doing front crawl stroke (with a beginning understanding of competitive breathing techniques) and one length of backstroke without stopping. The swim team is not the place for those who need swimming lessons. Swimmers not meeting minimum requirements will be referred for swimming lessons and participation in the swim team at a later time. All swimmers will need to try out prior to registering for the team. Coaches will have the final decision on who participates on the team.
TRY-OUTS will take place Thursday, July 29th, and Friday, July 30th from 4:30-6 PM. Please register online to secure a spot for tryouts
Groups will be based on their ability not just age. We put great focus on technique.
The team practice times have been modified from the prior season and are reflected below:
|Age Group||Practice Time|
|7 to 12||4:30 PM to 5:25 PM|
|13 to 18||5:30 PM to 7:00 PM|
The Cane Bay Krakens will participate in approximately 5 meets per season. Sign-ups for all meets will be done electronically, through Team Unify. Please watch emails, newsletters, and Facebook to meet sign-up deadlines. If you have not responded by the deadline, we will assume your child is not competing and therefore will not enter him/her in the meet.
