Tryouts day allocation

ISS Sharks tryouts 2018/19

Dear parents,

Thank you to all of you who have already handed in your registration forms ahead of the ISS Sharks tryouts. Due to the high demand of swimmers wishing to tryout on Wednesday 22nd I have decided to allocate tryout days to swimmers to ensure that everyone gets a fair trial. Can I ask that you please adhere to the following:

  • Wednesday 22nd at 15:15 – Primary school swimmers only

  • Thursday 23rd at 15:15 – Senior school swimmers only

  • Friday 24th at 07:00 – Any swimmers who cannot attend Wednesday or Thursday (please confirm your attendance prior to the session if you wish to attend Friday morning)

I hope this is suitable for all. If there are any problems and you cannot attend any of the above sessions then please do not hesitate to contact me so that we can make other arrangements.

Some parents and children have expressed some worry regarding the swim tryouts. The idea of the tryouts is not to exclude anyone but rather to allow all swimmers who have expressed an interest in joining the swim team an opportunity to do so. It will also allow me to find out how many swimmers are interested, gauge the ability of the swimmers and create the best possible training plan for each swimmer according to their needs. We will, as always, strive to give as many students as possible the opportunity to train and compete with the team.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Withers
