Criteria for Pre-team
Pre-team swimmers must be comfortable being in the water, away from parents. Pre-Teamers must be able to participate in swim practice and swim approximately 3/4 length of the pool without a kickboard.
The goal of the pre-team program is to prepare young swimmers to participate in a swim meet once they have acquired the necessary skills. Swimmers will be taught two of the four basic competitive strokes- freestyle and backstroke. They will also be taught how to dive into the pool.
In "B" meet, there is an informal "kick board race event" during the intermission for young pre-team
swimmers who wish to participate.
