Our popular Pre-Team instructional and exercise program develops health, fitness and swimming skills for children. Instruction consists of the fundamentals of competitive swimming including stroke instruction, starts, and turns. Students will increase endurance and strength in an enjoyable and confidence-building environment. Classes are offered two days per week.

Our Pre-Team has a tradition of coaching and teaching swimmers to swim with great technique and success. The program Lead Coach is Nicholas Jufiar, Head Coach Los Gatos Polar Bears, 2005 Pacific Swimming Age Group Coach of the Year, and Assistant Swimming Coach at Los Gatos High School.
