Newton Bluefish Tryout Information
No. We are a competitive swim team and all members are expected to compete in all meets. We have started the Jr. Bluefish program for non competitive swim team related training.
Our team relies on parent volunteers to help run meets. Please make every effort to help out with as many meets as your schedule allows. Volunteering at meets is a great way to meet other parents on the team and see your kids swim up close. The coaches appreciate any assistance offered.
Events are posted 30 minutes prior to start of meet. Each swimmer will swim in two individual events and possibly one relay.
Summer swim meets typically run about 90 minutes long. Swimmers should bring two towels and clothing to keep warm between events.
We encourage parents to arrange car pools. However, limited transportation is provided.
All swimmers are required to wear competitive swim suits, caps and goggles that fit. Team suits are available, but are not mandatory.
Local sports stores such as Modell's, The Barn, Sports Authority and City Sports offer a decent selection of competitive swim equipment. There are also a number of on-line stores that offer competitive swim gear.
