Killarney Farms Swim Center
NEW SWIMMER TRY-OUTS:
Saturday, April 28th & Sunday, April 29th @ 10am
At KFSC, please have cash or check ready for registration fee
Join us for another season of fun at Killarney Farms! Our team provides the opportunity for swimmers ages
5-18 to improve stroke technique, speed, and build confidence in the water, while being introduced to
competitive swimming in a fun, low-pressure environment. The season begins with training starting on May 7,
and concludes on July 14 with League Championships.

New Swimmers

New swimmers - swimmers who have never participated in Summer or Fall Swim Team at Killarney or have
not swam at Killarney since Fall 2016 or earlier - need to do a "try-out) with Coach Aoife or Coach Melissa.
This try-out is nothing to be intimidated by, it is only to check that your child is water safe and determines the
most appropriate practice group for them.

Your child must be able to swim any stroke at least 15 yards without assistance. Try-outs will be held on
Saturday, April 28th & Sunday, April 29th at 10am. You do not need to sign up for try-outs ahead of time, just
show up on whichever date works best for you. All your swimmer(s) need(s) at the try-out is a properly-fitting
swimsuit, a pair of goggles, and a towel. Please bring the completed registration form and cash or check
(sorry, no cards) for the registration fee. The registration fee this season is $175/swimmer for members and
$350/swimmer for nonmembers.

Returning Swimmers

If your child participated in Summer or Fall Swim Team at Killarney in 2017, they do not need to do a try-out.
Please fill out the registration form (link below) and mail the completed registration form and payment to the
address below (not the pool's address) -OR- drop it off at the pool to Coach Aoife or Coach Melissa during
tryouts (see dates/times above).
Please mail/drop off your registration by April 29.
