Summer 2019 Pre-Competition Swim Team
IMPORTANT: Please PRE-REGISTER by completing the online registration form from the link below:
Interested swimmers will be evaluated by the coaches during a mandatory swimming skill assessment at the Clover Hill Pool on 6/21 at 11am to determine appropriateness of participation. Swimmers who participated in Pre-Team last year do not need to attend this skill assessment.
Clover Hill is excited to announce the return of our successful Pre-Team program. Led by the Hurricane's head coach Julie Scherer, Pre-Team is designed for future swim team members who require a little extra attention before they are ready to join a competitive swim team. Swimmers who pre-register before June 14th will be added to the competitive team's roster, so they can participate in a Hurricane meet if they find they are ready.
Pre-Team is not a replacement for swimming lessons; it serves as a transition from basic instructional classes to preparation for competitive swimming. Pre-Team will introduce swimmers to beginning training and racing skills, build endurance, and help develop interest in this great sport in a supportive environment. It will also encourage awareness of the swim meet setting, teach swim team terminology (ex: lanes, heats, relays, starts), and improve stroke techniques. Coach Julie will be assisted by several other coaches and there will be plenty of hands-on, in-the-water instruction.
Who should consider joining the Pre-Team?
- Swimmers from ages 4 to 9 years old
- Children with previous swim instruction experience
- Boys and girls who demonstrate general confidence in the water
- Children who can, at a minimum, doggie-paddle for a few yards independently and feel comfortable laying on their backs
The major goal of this program is to prepare children for the excitement of competitive swimming in a recreational summer league. Pre-Team members are welcome to participate in the regular team's activities such as pep rallies and pizza parties. We hope they will also want to watch the summer meets and cheer on the swimmers for Clover Hill's team: the Hurricanes! Most of all, we hope Pre-Team will develop a life-long love of swimming.
