What is Prep Squad Swim Team??

A transitional (non-competitive) group that helps swimmers bridge from SwimAmerica swim lessons to the RSC Swim Club.  In this group swimmers are encouraged to attend at least two practices a week. Swimmers will learn more advanced stroke work and important skills and drills to be successful swim team swimmers.  

Focal points of Prep Squad practice:  

  • Introduces lane etiquette (circle swimming, lining up, how to pass)
  • Establishes positive habits (stremline breakouts with fish kicks, legal finshes)
  • Further develops Breastroke and Butterfly
  • Conditions freestyle and backstroke for workout level distances
  • Teaches drills, sculling, flip turns (front and back), open turns
  • Leg strengthening through fin kicking

Swimmers will enter this group with knowledge of all four strokes and will leave ready to be a member of either the RSC USA Swim Team or the House League.
