Pre-team will be capped at 40 swimmers.
Pre-Team is for children 4-7 years old, who have already mastered the basic swim skills (blowing bubbles, kicking on the wall, putting their face in the water), but need to further develop their swim skills and build confidence.
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 on June 3 & 4, 2023.
In order to be on Pre-Team, a swimmer must be able to:
- Separate from parent and enter water on their own.
- Comfortably make their way across the diving well, unassisted, and without showing signs of distress.
- Be comfortable in water over 5 feet deep
- Listen to the coaches
Pre Team practice begins on Monday, June 19 and culminates with the annual Popsicle Mini Meet on [TBD]
Information on any group swim lessons will be made available through Olney Mill Pool email, OM Facebook page, Swim Team emails, and/or the Swim Team Facebook group as information becomes available. Families are encouraged to reach out to the Olney Mill lifeguards to inquire about private lessons.
