The Hood Hammerheads are bringing back our Pups Pre-Team program after five very successful seasons! The Pups Pre-Team is geared to the up and coming swim team members who need a little extra attention prior to joining a competitive swim team.


Interested swimmers will be evaluated by the Coach during a swimming skills assessment & registration session on our first day of morning practice on June 5th, 2023 to determine appropriateness of participation.

Runs 5 weeks from June 5th to July 6th.
Pups p
ractice time is from 10:30-11:15 Monday-Thursday (No Friday practices)


Please register and pay online and choose Pups as the group. All pups will be assessed on the first day. If upon assessment, your swimmer isn't quite ready for the program, your payment will be returned. No refunds will be given after the program begins.

Please note: The Pups Pre-Team is not swimming lessons. Prior swim instruction is required. Participants must be able to float on their backs, propel themselves forward (doggie paddle or rudimentary free-style by themselves). Swimmers should be comfortable in the water and be able to put their face in the water.


Our goal is to help instill the love of the sport and to inspire confidence in themselves as they learn and grow into a competent swimmer.


Pups Summer Schedule:.

5 week Session: 10:30-11:15  Monday through Thursday, June 5th-July 6th.

Cost: $120 per Pups participant. This includes the non-refundable insurance fee.


Pups are invited to be part of our Team/individual Photo Day TBD, and all of our team activities. The Hammerheads have 2-3 dinner Pep Rallies at Hood and our End of the Season Banquet and hopefully a movie night or two.

We encourage you to bring your Pups to the meets to help cheer on the team and see what a meet is like.
