OLYM’s Pre-Competitive program allows swimmers to improve their swimming abilities, flexibility, and fundamental swimming skills, while introducing them to the competitive side of artistic swimming.
Our program is well suited for swimmers that love trying new moves in the water, are comfortable in the deep end and like a challenge. No experience is necessary.
Each practice includes both training on land and in the water. Our Pre-Competitive program is designed as a stepping stone to move into either our Competitive or High Performance programs. Swimmers can develop the necessary Artistic Swimming skills over one or two years, so that they can confidently transition into the next level.
All training and competition information will be posted in your TeamSnap calendars as we get the information. We ask that you look over the entire yearly calendar when you receive it so that you are informed. There is no training over major holidays or March Break. Athletes will have the opportunity to compete at 2-3 competitions over the course of the year in the Regional League, and they will also participate in our Holiday and Spring Water Shows.
