REGISTRATION FOR PRE-TEAM 2023 WILL OPEN ON APRIL 1. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRE-TEAM WILL BE CAPPED AT 30 SWIMMERS.
We are so excited to once more offer instruction to our littlest Terrapins! Pre-Team is open to kids ages 4 and up who can swim 15 yards in water over their head while breathing. It offers new swimmers a taste of all of the fun kids have during the season, and it’s a great way to get to know other Manor Woods families!
When does pre-team practice?
Beginning on Monday, June 19, pre-Team will meet on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10:15am-11:00am; and on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00pm-6:45pm. We encourage kids to attend at least two practices per week, but they do not have to attend all five practices.
Who coaches pre-team?
Our junior coaches will lead pre-team practices, and we also have volunteer coaches from the swim team who will help out.
Does my child need to be able to swim a full length of the pool in order to join pre-team?
We do not require any swimmers to swim a full length of the pool in order to join pre-team. However, they should be able to swim at least 15 yards in water over their head, while breathing and feel comfortable floating on their back. They should also be comfortable swimming with a kick board in water over their head.
Will I be able to be on the pool deck during pre-team practice?
While you are free to hang out and watch practice, we ask that you do not sit or stand on the deck or approach the coaches until after the practice has ended.
Will there be a pre-team mini meet?
Yes! Our intersquad meet takes place on the final week of pre-team at Manor Woods during the morning practice session (10:15-11:00 am).
Can my family join in on all swim team activities?
Of course! All pre-teamers and their families are welcome members of the Manor Woods Swim & Dive community! Please join us for Friday evening spirit activities and pot lucks and other fun events throughout the season.
