The Synatics Pre-Competitive program is designed for swimmers 7-9 years old who would like to try a competitive environment. Swimmers will train one day a week from late September to May, usually alongside our competitive teams. The Pre-Competitive program is a great way, but not mandatory, to get ready for the competitive stream!

If your athlete falls outside the age range please contact for more information. 

What we offer:

As a Pre-Competitive swimmer, your child will be placed on a team with swimmers of similar age and experience. Pre-Competitive swimmers will develop fundamental skills in artistic swimming. In addition, they will develop a team routine that will be presented at both the Winter and Spring Water Shows.

NOTE: we need a minimum of 4 swimmers to create a team and try to keep age groups together where possible.
