The Pre Team will focus on learning rotary breathing for freestyle, backstroke arms/kick and an introduction to butterfly and breaststroke along with multiple drills and other swimming skills such as diving, flip turns, finishes etc.

Swimmers in the Tyke group will be placed with other swimmers with similar ability as we will have a range of swimmers who are just starting with legal freestyle and backstroke to swimmers who are legal in all 4 strokes.

Swimmers who are not legal in all 4 strokes will work on learning butterfly and breaststroke through drills as well as other swim skills such as diving, flip turns, finishes etc.

Swimmers who are already legal in all 4 strokes will focus on developing their stroke technique through drills while working on endurance to make their strokes faster.
