2021 PMR Swim Team Information as of 1/20/21

.

Due to COVID-19, we are not sure yet what the 2021 summer league swim season will look like.  It is very possible that 2021 will be a PRACTICE only season. Please check back after February 17 as we should have additional details after meeting with the West Houston Houston Aquatic League (WHALe League).

.

Registration will not start until at least April 1. 

  • 2019 and 2020 PMR Team Members will receive priority registration.
  • Team size will most likely be limited due to COVID-19.  We do not know these numbers yet.
  • The team will take COVID-19 safety precautions as needed which could include masks, social distancing, daily temperature checks and constant sanitizing. 
  • If you would like to join the team in 2021, please return soon as we will have a sign-up for those interested. 

.

TRYOUTS

Tryouts will still be required even if we have a practice only season.   Tryouts would not be held until April. 

ALL NEW swimmers, including siblings of the 2019 and 2020 team, MUST try out for the team. Swimmers must be age 4-18 by May 1, 2021, no exceptions.

All swimmers that went to tryouts in 2020 and passed but did not choose to swim in 2020 due to COVID-19, will need to tryout again in 2021. Swimmers in this group that pass will be given priority registration and are guaranteed a spot on the 2021 team. 

Members of Katy Aquatics competitive (not Swim America), Katy Aquatics Future Stars, Texas Elite, Power Aquatics, Fulshear Racing Team, a high school swim team or any other competitive swim team, please let registration know in your email as  your child may not have to go through tryouts.

Tryout requirements are as follows:

  • Age 4-6: Freestyle swim any which way but must get across the length of the pool without any assistance, panic or turning over to float on the back.
  • Age 7-8: Freestyle swim but must get across the length of the pool without any assistance, panic or turning over to float on the back. Should also know Backstroke.
  • Age 9-10: Confident Freestyle and Backstroke swim across the length of the pool. Preferred to also know at least Butterfly or Breaststroke.
  • Age 11-18: Confident Freestyle and Backstroke swim across the length of the pool. Should know at least Butterfly or Breaststroke.

The age used is your child's age as of May 1 of 2020 as that is their swim group for practice and meets. Once they are on the team, they will learn more stroke development and learn about swim team competition.

Swim Team is not a Learn to Swim Program. A swimmer must be comfortable remaining in the water independently. While coaches will teach strokes, dives and turns, each age group should have a certain amount of swim knowledge before trying out for the swim team. If in doubt, it is highly recommended that swim lessons be taken before tryouts. We highly recommend swim lessons at Texas Swim Academy. They do a fantastic job there and they know the swim team requirements for all four strokes. You may contact Texas Swim Academy at 832-437-6186.

Please email [email protected] if you have any questions.
