Lucky’s Lobsters Evaluations Announced

2022-2023 Lucky’s Lobsters Swim Evaluation Information

The most updated swim team information can always be found on our Lucky’s Lobsters page.

All swimmers interested in participating in Lucky’s Lobsters must attend one evaluation session. Coaches have not seen the swimmers for nine months, so it’s important that both new AND returning swimmers attend one session. A parent or caregiver should attend with the child to learn about the program and ask questions. The evaluation will last one hour or less. Pre-registration is not required, and swimmers should only attend once.

Membership is not required for evaluations. However, if you are a returner and know you will participate, regardless of practice time or placement, please complete your online membership using the MyClubHub parent portal.
