FALL/SPRING PRE-COMPETITIVE TEAM (9-13)

A try-out is NOT NECESSARY for acceptance onto the Pre-competitive group however kids must be able to complete two laps of freestyle unassisted.

The Cougar Aquatic Team is offering a pre-team program (1.5 hour practices) to non-team members designed for the swimmer who wishes to maintain their aerobic base while continuing to improve their skills in all four competitive strokes. This program is ideal for middle and high school swimmers who want to train before the school swim teams begin. Every practice will be coached by a member of the Cougar Aquatic Team coaching staff and include our stroke drills and training method. The clinic will cover:
Cougar Aquatic Team stroke drills & technique work.
Underwater filming and stroke analysis.
30 minute “main set” minimum per practice.
Work on Starts, Turns and Finishes.
Dry-land: emphasis on balance, stretching/flexibility, core strength and coordination.
Interval Training & Test Sets
Distance Challenge – 500 and 1,000 yard freestyle swim.
A fun intra-squad meet will be held on the last practice date. This mini-meet will give participants the chance to become exposed to the fun and excitement of a swim meet environment, as well as show off the skills they’ve learned to family and friends.
Train with Purpose.
