Pre-Competitive Group


About the Group

The Pre-Comp group is the perfect fit for those looking for their first experience with a competitive swim team while balancing their involvement in other activities. This training group is meant to bridge the gap between a child’s first experience with either a learn-to-swim program or a summer recreation swim team and a year-round competitive swim team.

  • For swimmers 10 years old and younger
  • Able to swim 25 yards freestyle and 25 yards backstroke unassisted 
  • Have been introduced to all four competitive strokes
  • Shows ability to listen and be attentive to coaches
