The PDR Swimming offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of PDR Swimming to offer age-specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities. New swimmers are placed into the appropriate group based off of an assessment given by a member of the PDR Swimming coaching staff.
