The DACA Pre-Competitive Program is an introductory program designed to improve stroke and turn technique in preparation for the DACA Competitive Team.  Small class sizes of no more than seven swimmers of similar ability allow for first-class instruction that is both focused and personalized.  Instruction in the DACA Pre-Competitive Program provides a technical skill base, igniting a love of the water and inspiring our swimmers to continue on in all levels of the DACA Competitive Team.

Ongoing month-to-month classes are offered at state of the art facilities.  Both locations, Saratoga High School and De Anza College, feature outdoor, heated pools with full locker rooms and ample spectator seating.

DACA also offers indoor Pre-Competitive at our swim school location. For more information specifically regarding the Indoor Pre-Competitive please call 408-446-5600.
