Join Our Team – Open Try-outs!
The Dallas Mustangs have OPEN TRY-OUTS for swimmers 6-18 years of age wishing to take that next step in swimming. The Dallas Mustangs offer a variety of programs including learn-to-swim classes, structured age-group and national level practices for young swimmers interested in year-round swimming. Tryouts for all groups are held at HP, Loos and KC Pools.
Try-outs for the team involve the swimmer meeting one of our coaches and going through a brief swim where they demonstrate their swimming skills. Based upon the try-out, the coach recommends the work-out group best suited for the swimmer. Swimmers must be accompanied by a parent during the try-out. A photocopy of the swimmer's birth certificate, or other legal document showing the swimmer's full name and date of birth, needs to be provided to the team at the try-out.
