Pre-Competitive Program

Our Pre-Competitive program is held at Montclair Swim Club. This program is available for swimmers ages 6-9 who meet the prerequisites. Your swimmer will learn the basic mechanics of an efficient and effective competitive stroke, the basics of competitive starts and turns, and be introduced to the structure and rhythm of a competitive swim team practice. Our curriculum is based on the American Development Model by USA-Swimming (Level 1), however we are customizing our program based on the group's needs. Swimmers who have successfully completed four sessions will have priority to join PST’s competitive swim team.

We are now offering a precomp class on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Wednesday is at Montclair Swim Club and will run from 3:45 - 4:45pm and on Saturdays at Mills College, Trefethan Aquatic Center from 10:30 to 11:30am

Prerequisites:

Participants should be able to comfortably swim 25 yards in Freestyle with some basic knowledge of Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly. Those who don’t fulfill these requirements should enroll in private lessons to develop their swimming skills for future placement.

If you are concerned your swimmer is not ready for the Pre Competetive Program contact our Head Developmental Coach Adrien Downey and schedule an evaluation. Adrien will let you know if your swimmer is ready for precomp or needs more time in lessons. Evaluations take at most 5 - 10 minutes to complete.

Schedule an evaluation with Adrien by emailing [email protected]
