what s our pre team
What’s our pre-team?
  • Swimmers who have basic swimming skills.
  • Includes 6 years old or under (may include 7 to 8 years old swimmers needing extra work).
  • Usually between 4-6 years old (*).
  • Practice 30 minutes per day, in a group “swimming lesson” environment.
  • “Compete” in kickboard “races” on Wednesday nights (B meets).
  • May swim other strokes on Wednesday nights (if legal) or Saturday mornings if needed.
swim meets
Swim meets:
  • “A” meets are Saturday morning meets (except for Wednesday, 6/11). Include dual meets (vs. one other team), Relay Carnival (on 6/29), and Divisionals (7/19).
  • “B” meets are for swimmers to swim what they didn’t swim during the previous Saturday “A” meet.
  • Swimmers may bump themselves into an “A” meet by their “B” meet times.
  • Divisionals are the “O” division “playoffs”. The top two swimmers for each event/age group compete in this meet.

recognition
Recognition:

  • Coaches hand out ribbons 1-2 times per week (on Mondays—following Saturday and previous Wednesday meets) during post-practice team meetings. Swimmers will receive their ribbons by receiving “mail” (ribbons in envelopes) from coaches.
