Colby Sawyer Pre-Team

Colby Sawyer Pre-Team is for children who can swim in water over their head as they are developing their crawl stroke and backstroke. The scope of these lessons does include work on drills and skills that would be considered preparation to join our UVAC Swim Team. Very similar to our UVAC Level 5/6 but since the class is taught by Singe Linville, our Colby Sawyer Team Coach, it does include work with the pace clock, flip turns and racing dives. The class is taught at the Hogan Center Pool Only.
