Competitive TRYOUT For New Season 2022-2023

Sydney Emeralds will be holding competitive team tryout for a new season in February 2022. We invite all interested swimmers with minimum Star 2 skills to register.

The tryout will be a three week process in February (or earlier if arranged with head coach Jo separately), where the interested swimmer will be required to attend one to two sessions each week with the competitive team. In these sessions, they will learn new skills and work on old skills that they will need for competitive. After these three weeks, Jo will have an informal meeting with the parent and the swimmer to decide whether it is best for the swimmer to move up to competitive. Please don’t shy away from competitive if you are worried about your skills after this long break, we will be revisiting skills from the start!

Swimmers, who join the competitive program, will have a practice minimum 2 days per week and will be part of amazing team experience and journey to compete at NSW States Championships or at Australian Nationals.
