Youth swim team & water polo tryouts coming up

Dozens of Carpinteria kiddos are becoming great swimmers and water polo players while having lots of fun in our programs at Carpinteria Community Pool. If you’re interested in getting your child onto our swim team or water polo team, we will hold mandatory tryouts this month. Swim team tryouts are scheduled for Tuesday, June 11 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. and water polo tryouts are on Thursday, June 13 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. All tryouts will be held at Carpinteria Community Pool, 5305 Carpinteria Ave.

Swim team participants will be expected to have experience swimming freestyle and backstroke, and must be capable of participating in a 1-hour swim practice. This is not a learn-to-swim program. The program is for ages 5 and up.

To qualify for the water polo team, participants must meet the requirements for the swim team and be able to pick up and throw a ball while treading water. The water polo team is open to 10-14 years olds (fourth- through eighth-graders). Water polo team members are also on the swim team and may attend swim practices.

Water polo practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Swim team participants will be grouped by skill level, and practice times and days depend on grouping.
