This is our entry level group. An athlete need not be able to swim to enter this group, but should be comfortable putting their face in the water. Coaches are in the water with the swimmers for the duration of the practice, and work to build key swimming skills, with the goal of having the swimmer able to swim a length of the pool by the end of the season.
Prep Team Lead Coaches:
Workout Days/Times: Monday-Friday -- 8:50-9:30 AM, 9:40-10:20 AM, 10:30-11:10 AM, 11:20-Noon
*You will need to sign up for a specific prep team practice upon registration. This is new this year to help maintain the swimmer to coaches ratio.
