Thank you for considering joining COPS! We are a nationally competitive USA Swim team serving Collin County since 1971. To best meet the needs of the swimming community, we offer programs from the beginner swimmer to the adult Master Swimmer.
Our pre-competitive program is designed for new-to-the-water swimmers as young as 4, and beginner level swimmers to practice and develop their stroke technique in preparation for joining the competitive team. During tryouts, a coach will assess the swimmer's skills and recommend placement on either our pre-competitive (Foundations or Fundamentals) or Competitive Team.
If you have previously swam with a USAS team and have official swim times, you may not need to attend a tryout. Contact our Head Coach: Ted Carson (firstname.lastname@example.org). He may be able to place you in a group based on your previous swim times.
Youth Swimmers without previous times - Sign up for a tryout here!
COPS holds tryouts for new youth swimmers (ages 5-15). If your swimmer is younger than 5, contact our office at email@example.com. During tryouts, your swimmer will:
1. Demonstrate their ability to swim 25 yards in the deep end of the pool, without stopping and without fear.
2. Have the opportunity to demonstrate all four strokes.
A coach will assess the swimmer's skills and recommend placement on either our Fundamentals Team or our Competitive Team.
Fundamentals Team eligible swimmers will join either Foundations, Fundamentals 1, Fundamentals 2 or Fundamentals 3 to develop legal strokes and prepare to become a Competitive Team Member. Competitive Team eligible swimmers will be joining our year round competitive USA Swim team.
Tryouts are held at:
1712 P AVENUE
