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 45 minutes in length.

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. Coaches work with swimmers both in and out of the water to ensure proper and complete instruction.

Please read through our safety protocol prior to registering, as we want to ensure every family is comfortable and fully understands the regulations set forth.
