All new swimmers to BWST need to have
an evaluation done before they can join the team.
What to wear?
Swimmers must come to the evaluation

Call or email if you are unsure what this means.
- A swim cap if
the child needs one.

child is ready for an organized swim team, and at what level
(developmental or competitive). Swimmers will be asked to swim a
lap (or a few laps) or each stroke they know how to do.
Evaluations do not take more than 15 minutes, and the coach doing
the evaluation will speak with you when it's over about ability,
