Pre-Comp Program

Pre-Competitive Program

The Pre-Comp group is the perfect fit for those looking for their first experience with a competitive swim team who may also be involved with multiple activities at the same time. This training group is meant to bridge the gap between a child’s first experience with either a learn-to-swim program or a summer recreation swim team and a year-round competitive swim team.


The group is designed for swimmers 10 years of age or younger, offering two, 40-minute practices per week. During these practices, the swimmers will learn the foundations of the sport in order to prepare themselves for future competitive swim groups; doing so in a fun and friendly environment.   


There will be four, 9-week sessions offered between August and May. Each session will culminate with a Splash Swim Meet to demonstrate what the swimmers have learned. In addition, each participant will receive a Scottsdale Aquatic Club t-shirt and a Scottsdale Aquatic Club swim cap.


Pre-Comp is specifically designed for new members only. This group will be offered at both our North and South locations. Our goal for swimmers in this group is that once they are ready to move into the year-round program they will have made friends on the team and understand what club swimming is about!
