Boys and Girls

Pacific Wave offers Pre-Competitive programs at various locations. We offer two levels of Pre-Competitive:

Entry 1.5 hours per week at Hillcrest & Lord Byng pools in Vancouver and Minoru in Richmond 

Advanced 5 to 7 hours per week at Watermania Pool


The pre-competitive programs are for athletes who have participated in AquaGO and passed level 3; have previous dance, ballet, figure skating or speed swimming abilities, AND have been assessed by one of our coaches to join this level.

They will continue to build on the 4 pillars of strength, flexibility, speed swimming and synchro specific skills, while learning a routine. They will have the opportunity to perform this routine at our year end watershow. No competitions will be attended by this group.
