Pre-Competitive Swimming

pre-competitive swimmingTake Your Mark and Mini Team Pre-Competitive Swimming Programs

Take Your Mark participants will learn the fundamentals of competitive swimming through fun-filled drills in a positive atmosphere.  This program is the first of a two-part program designed to slowly move swimmers from the pre-competitive level to the competitive levels.  This program is great for Summer league swimmers, Country Club swimmers, or children coming out of swim lessons.  Our concentration will be on correct stroke form of all four (4) competitive strokes, as well as understanding how to use starting blocks.  There are no swim meets.  Parents that wish to have their child(ren) try-out the program should plan to attend the first two classes prior to registering.  Friday, October 3rd is the last day to try-out this program.
