The minimum age for Pre-team is 5 years old by June 1st. For the safety of all swimmers, children must pass a swim test before acceptance into the Pre-Team program. The coaches will be conducting this test the first week of practice. Swimmers must be able to swim across the diving well of the pool and tread water for 1 minute. Please keep in mind that our coaches do not provide swimming lessons, instead they work with your child to improve their current skills. (Swim lessons may be obtained through the Plantations Pool.) Swimmers are welcome to join pre-team at any time during the summer, once they pass the swim test.
Regular team members must be able to swim the length of the pool (25 meters) without any assistance and be deep water safe. Swimmers will receive instruction in all four strokes - freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Coaches will instruct swimmers on flip turns, diving and racing starts in preparation for swim meets. Swim team members must be no older than 18 years old on June 1st.
