We're not sure if we're going to be able to have a pre-team this year. Because our pre-team swimmers normally require in-water support, there's no way to give them the support they need and still have each swimmer be safely distanced from others. We'll share more information as we have it.
The pre-team is is a developmental program for younger swimmers who want to be team members but are not ready for regular team practices or meets.
Basic instruction in competitive strokes is provided. Children must be able to swim one length of the pool without assistance or touching solid surfaces of the pool in order to join the pre-team.
The pre-team is coached by a friendly and knowledgeable group of high school coaches and middle school volunteers who are swim team members. They make practice fun and informative for the pre-teamers.
Pre-team members may participate in all social activities (some activities may have age restrictions) and also swim in a special Mini-Meet for 8-and-under swimmers held at Tilden Woods each summer.
Pre-team dues are the same as regular team dues.
