Tahoe Swim Club holds tryouts
The Tahoe Swim Club is seeking to expand its membership from the current 50 by adding 20 more members aged 5-17.
Tryouts will be held Oct. 6-8 from 4-4:30 p.m. at the City of South Lake Tahoe Recreation Center pool. Swimmers need to make it across the 25-yard pool.
The club team is year-round and the focus is on learning proper swimming technique and skill, camaraderie and competition. Practice sessions are Monday through Thursday after school with swim meets held about once a month.
There is no cost for the three-day tryout but attendance for all three days is required to make the team. School bus transportation to the recreation center is provided by the school district for those with a bus pass from Meyers, Bijou, Sierra House and Tahoe Valley elementary schools.
The cost for a three-month trial period at the pool is $190 with monthly dues following. Participants should bring a swim suit and towel.
For more information call Dale Bogard at (530) 544-5326 or visit the pool Monday through Thursday afternoon from 4-6 p.m.
