JBHS Swim & Dive Tryouts

We are excited to announce that we have been able to schedule tryouts for the 2020-2021 Bowie Swim and Dive Team.  This year will be different than past years, but we are looking forward to a great season.  This season we will have a Varsity and JV team.  This is due to limitations related to practices and meets based on COVID restrictions.  There is a potential that the JV team will not be able to participate in meets during the year.  We are working hard to make this not the case, but we want to be up front on the potential.  If this impacts your interest in the team, please let us know.  

 

Below is a summary of key information related to tryouts.

 

Tryouts will be held on Thursday, September 3 from 1-3 pm at the Nitro pool in Bee Caves.  15506 D TX-71, Bee Caves, TX 78738.  This is a premier swim facility and we are excited for the opportunity to use it for tryouts.  We recognize this is further than some may like to travel, but it is the best option for the current time.

  1. Please be prepared to swim.  Come in your suit and have your goggles ready.  You do not need other equipment for tryouts.

  2. Parents will not be allowed in the building, so you can either hang out in the parking lot or grab something to eat at the adjacent restaurant or shop at the nearby Hill Country Galleria.

  3. All swimmers must wear a mask until they are ready to get in the water.  No exceptions.

  4. We will spread swimmers out as much as possible with a maximum of 4 per lane (2 on each end of the pool)

  5. Bring a water bottle.

  6. Plan to be in the water for approximately 1 hour.

  7. Clean up after yourself.  We are grateful to Nitro for letting us use their facility.  We need to leave it spotless.

If you cannot make the tryouts on Thursday, September 3, we will have a make-up tryout opportunity at the Shady Hollow pool on Friday morning beginning at 7:00 am.

  1. If you need to utilize the alternative time, please email Coach Bobo at peyton.bobo@austinisd.org to schedule the time you should be at the pool.

  1. Prior to arriving at tryouts you will need to fill out two forms.  

    1. Team Google Form to get contact information: https://forms.gle/9nEpTw8boUYzboMX8

    2. Nitro Waiver of Liability: We will send this form out later this week.

 

We are still looking for a home to be able to have our practices, beginning September 14.  We have reached out to several local pools to discuss options but have not been able to solidify a plan at this point.  If you have a connection that may be able to help us find a pool to call home, please let us know.  Getting our kids in the water and having a great season is our priority.  We appreciate your support!
