About This Activity

Pine- Richland Pre-Team
OUR MISSION: To teach stroke development and racing skills needed to swim on a year around competitive swim team.

About Pre-Team
We know in this day and age that sometimes a commitment to year around swim team is challenging and very time consuming.  PRA is proud to offer an introduction or alternative to that.  Our pre-team program is for those families that might be interested in swimming, but just not quite sure what the program has to offer.

We offer several semesters annually conducted on Saturdays only, that consist of 10 classes.  We use our highly qualified coaches and athletes to instruct our students.  Upon completion of our swim school, your swimmer will be ready to take the next step and join a competitive swim team.
Vision:  Our goal is to introduce children into the sport of competitive swimming and give the children a taste of what PRA has to offer.  We offer a program that is more relaxed than competitive swim teams.  We are looking to provide the skills needed to swim for a team, but without the commitment of a year around program.​
