Pre-Competitive Swimming Program in Albany, New York

Excel Aquatics is excited to offer a pre-competitive program at The College of Saint Rose in Albany for young swimmers, ages 6 and up who have a firm grasp of competitive Freestyle and Backstroke, and are interested in exploring the world of competitive swimming. Practices are offered with options of once for 45 minutes per practice.

Learn the Basics of Competitive Swimming

Excel Aquatics’ pre-competitive program is a great way for children to learn competitive swimming basics with a group of peers without the commitment that comes with being on a competitive team. This is a multi-week program focused on teaching and refining all 4 swim strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, Butterfly, and Breaststroke), maintaining a healthy exercise routine in a supportive atmosphere, and most of all having fun. Multiple coaches work with all swimmers, ensuring individualized attention during each practice.

Sunday practices will be in water instructional swimming width wise (12 yards) in the Saint Rose pool, while Thursday practices will focus on teaching the elements of competitive swim practices, swimming length wise (25 yards) in the Saint Rose pool.
