Evaluations for 2024

Evaluations for the upcoming season will be held at the Newark Memorial High School pool on 

Sunday, February 10th from 9:00 - 11:00 am

February 13th through 15th from 6:00 - 6:30 pm 

Evaluations occur regardless of the weather; rain or shine, coaches will be at the pool reviewing swimmers.  

Potential new swimmers are requested to swim the length of the pool (25 yards) in all four strokes - freestyle, back, butterfly and breast.  Have your child arrive to the pool wearing a swimsuit and sandals or flip flops, and with a towel to dry off with.  While the pool area has restrooms, it does not have locker rooms nor showers.  Each evaluation should take approximately 20 minutes.  If the child requires some assistance in the water (e.g. unable to swim the entire length of the pool or becomes uncomfortable in the water), then a coach or returning swimmer may be in the water alongside the child to assist as needed.  Prior to coming to Evaluations, please complete the registration form below.

Coaches' decision to invite a new swimmer to join the team is based on a variety of factors, including but not limited to the following:

After evaluation, the potential new swimmer will be notified on whether he/she/they has been invited to join the team.  If the swimmer has been invited to join the team, then congratulations and welcome to the Newark Bluefins Family!  If the swimmer has not been invited to join the team, then we thank you for participating in our evaluations but are sorry we cannot extend an invitation to you at this time; however, we hope that you try again next year as each year the factors in evaluating potential new swimmers could change slightly.
