For novice swimmers, we have a Pre-Team. The goal of the pre-team is to introduce the basic strokes and to get the swimmer comfortable enough to swim 25 meters. To join the Pre-Team, swimmers should be able to tread water for 45 seconds and swim across the diving well. Most of the Pre-Team coaches are still swimming for the Dolphins or have recently graduated and come back to share their enthusiasm and expertise. If you're not sure whether or not your child is ready for the Pre-Team, or would like to move up to the team, please come talk to the coaches.
The Pre-Team is not designed to replace swimming lessons. Rather, it is a stepping stone between swimming lessons and Swim Team. An end-of-year Pre-Team celebration and mini-meet at the Calverton Swim Club are also a great way to see the accomplishments your child has made over the course of the session.
