What Is Swim Team Prep?

Swim Team Prep is a swim team-style practice group for competitive swimmers who participate on a summer league team during the summer or on a high school team. This group is designed to complement the small-group Stroke Technique classes we offer in our Learn To Swim and Stroke School Programs. These small group classes are invaluable because the small ratios allow our coaches to really break down each stroke to teach proper stroke mechanics from the ground up. Our swimmers see huge benefit from the individualized attention they receive from their coach. However, we also see the benefit of pairing this with a swim team style practice so that our swimmers can experience what it is like to swim as part of a larger group and build stamina during the longer practices.
At Propel, our coaches teach the sport of swimming. During Swim Team Prep, swimmers will practice and refine all 4 competitive strokes, diving, flip turns, and racing skills. Our coaches prioritize focused swimming over just swimming up and down the pool. We know that swimmers see the best results when every single lap has a challenge and a skill focus. Our Swim Team Prep Program is designed for summer league or high school swimmers who want to learn important racing skills, improve their endurance, and get a head-start on the competition for next season!
The absolute ideal situation for any swimmer is to get the best of both worlds; the detail-oriented focus of a small-group lesson to learn and improve the competitive strokes AND the larger group practice to reinforce all of the strokes they are learning by swimming a longer practice and longer distances!
A 15% Credit will be offered to any swimmer who continues enrollment in their weekly small-group class for the duration of Swim Team Prep.
