SSA Age Group II / Pre-Team Program

Seacoast Swimming Association offers a Pre-Team (Age Group II) program for children who have the ability to swim a basic crawl stroke (freestyle) and any form of backstroke. During practice emphasis is placed on learning and refining the four competitive strokes used in U.S.A. Swimming (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle), learning how to do a streamline shallow dive, basic turns, as well as becoming familiar with practice routines.

While teaching all the different skills, coaches try to incorporate some form of fun into every practice!

Children in Seacoast's pre-team (Age Group II) program range in age from 5 to 12 years old and practice twice per week for 45 minutes. The coach to swimmer ratio is usually 1 to 8. The sessions conclude with a fun mini-meet for all pre-team swimmers (awards for everyone).

SSA Age Group II / Pre-Team Schedule

Fall 2016 Session - Our Tryout dates for the Fall Session will be Friday, September 9th at 6pm and Saturday, September 10th at 10am at the Dover Indoor Pool. The Fall Session begins on September 19th and ends with a fun mini-meet on December 2nd. Classes will be offered twice a week for 45 minutes, either on a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedule.  Classes are typically offered at 4pm and 4:45pm, and group placement is determined by swimmer skills. 


Swimmers that have worked with Seacoast before DO NOT need to tryout again. The coaching staff is looking forward to working with your children! All young swimmers should have a well fitting swim suit and we highly recommend swim goggles. We will have some inexpensive goggles at registration. If your child has long hair, it must be tied back or he/she must wear a swim cap.
