Swimmers on the PREP TEAM are still learning the fundamentals of swimming. While the swimmer is still in the learning stages of perfecting their swimming, they are able to perform to a specific level.
Practice Level Prerequisite: Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards unassisted, without stopping. Swimmers must also be comfortable in deep water in a group setting away from parents.
Practice Frequency: Swimmers in this competitive level will begin practicing three days a week for one hour a day. Practice frequency has potential to increase as the season progresses. During this practice swimmers will work on rotary breathing, technique, and endurance. Occasional Saturday practices will be held as well and focused specifically on turns and strokes.
What to Expect: Throughout the course of the season your swimmer will gain knowledge of all four strokes and consistently practice perfecting the art of swimming. Various goals set for your swimmer will include completing a flip turn, flutter kicking, rotary breathing, starting from the starting block, and many more. Your swimmer will also learn competitive readiness and practice discipline.
Practice Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 5:00-6:00 PM during the months of October and November. All swimmers will be broken up into practice groups by the end of November and will begin practicing with their practice group starting in December.
Team Fee: $300.00. The team fee is able to be paid in full OR set up on a payment plan with a $50.00 down payment and 5 payments of $50.00 on the 1st of each month from November 2023 through March 1, 2024.
