I don't know how to swim but I want to join the swim team for my freshman year of high school. Do you think I'll be okay?

I don't want to drown in public again

Go to your nearest YMCA/YWCA lessons may be free. But don't expect to make the swim team this year.

You will need to know how to swim before joining the team, because the swimmers complete to see who can swim the fastest.

if you can't swim you'll get kicked off the swim team.

This could be a great opportunity for you to learn swimming, but usually, in swim teams, it's common for the teammates to know how to swim. I'd say to get the basics straight, and make sure you won't drown (learn treading or floating). Don't push yourself, either. When I pushed myself to learn advanced tricks in water, I passed out and ended up in the hospital. I'd say it's fine, but check on your limits. Good luck!
