“We welcome swimmers of all ages and ability levels that are interested in continuing their love for the sport through technique refinement and training development,” said Swim Team Coordinator Tony Gallagher. Providing every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success is the goal of Palatine Tiger Sharks.
Open tryouts are offered twice a year – in March and August. Interested swimmers are invited to attend tryouts on August 12 or 13 for an evaluation. Coaches will be on hand to answer questions about the program. Swimmers should bring a swimsuit, goggles, and a great attitude to the tryout. Team coaches will make the final determination for group placement and advancement. Following the tryout, coaches will be able to give families approximate practice times and locations.
Early bird registration for the short course season will be held on Tuesday, August 20 from 6:00pm-8:00pm at Birchwood Gym, 435 West Illinois Avenue, Palatine.
