Pre-Swim Team

Pre-Swim Team bridges the gap between swim lessons and competitive swim team. Kids are able to develop their strokes and gain a greater understanding of how a real swim team operates. While this is a non-competitive program, we work to encourage growth in distance, stamina, speed, breathing technique, stroke development, and teamwork. Begin as early as possible; both the pre-team and swim team accept children beginning at age 5.
