The pre-comp program is designed to be a bridge between lessons and swim team to help transition swimmers into the swim team. In pre-comp, students will polish all of their 4 strokes, build up endurance to swim longer distances, and learn crucial skills for swim team such as reading the clock, circle swimming, turns, and dives.
Our instructor ratio is 1 instructor per 4 swimmers.
For the winter, pre-competitive practices are held Monday through Friday. Pre-competitive practice is one hour from 5:00PM to 6:00PM. Swimmers must attend at least two practices a week, but may attend all five if they wish. This schedule will continue through March.
Tryouts are Monday- Friday between 4pm – 6pm.
This is what the tryout will entail:
- 1 lap of proficient freestyle
- 1 lap of proficient backstroke
- 1 lap of breaststroke with proficient breaststroke kicks
The final decision is up to the Head Coach as to who may be a good fit for pre-comp. Following a successful evaluation, the Head Coach will give further instructions for signing up or notes for improvement.
