Aquamaid/ Aquaman Assessment Day
Due to increasing demand and limited availability, the Aquamaids have developed a point system to help determine ranking and placement for those interested in pursuing our year-round competitive program. 
 
The points associated with that criteria will be added up to determine a ranking.  Athletes will be invited into the competitive program in rank order and the remaining athletes will be placed on a wait list.
