A-Cast Swim Team (Ages 5-18)

The Staunton-Augusta YMCA will continue to host and facilitate the ACAST (Augusta County Amberjax Swim Team). ACAST is dedicated to providing an enriching swim team experience, geared towards both the novice and experienced swimmer.

Tryouts

  • September 12th-14th 7:00pm-8:00pm

Prospective Swimmers need only attend one evening during tryouts. Registration and payment is due on the tryout date. All swimmers must be proficient enough to swim at least 25m without stopping in at least two competitive strokes (namely freestyle and backstroke). Older/Experienced Swimmers may be asked to swim 300m to determine appropriate level placement, as well as to demonstrate proficiency in all four competitive strokes for 50m each.
