SET YOUR SIGHTS ON GOLD!
The NAC PreCompetitive Program (PreComp) is a technique based, learn-to-swim practice group that utilizes the combined core principles of the SwimAmerica program and the NAC Competitive Team. Our effective in-water instruction focuses on learning breaststroke and butterfly while further developing skills and strength in freestyle and backstroke. Coaches are laying the foundation for competitive racing skills such as diving, turns, and streamlines. PreComp is used to bridge the gap from swim lessons to competitive swimming with the use of a low coach-to-swimmer ratio.

Where & when are PreComp team practices held?
The PreComp practices at the Centennial Sportsplex located on 25th Avenue in Nashville. Practices are offered in the afternoon, 2 times a week for 45 minutes each. More information on the current and upcoming sessions can be found by clicking “Session Registation”.
If my child is placed, how many practices should he/she attend?
With an individual approach to each athlete in a training group setting, the staff introduces skills, terminology and techniques that build on each other throughout the course of each season. In order to keep each athlete and session group moving towards the next level, consistent attendance is key for learning and adaptation. It is in the best interest of the swimmer to consistently attend the requested number of practices each week in order to see progress and build a sense of pride in their accomplishments week to week and continue their development in the program.
How many sessions will my swimmer attend?
Each athlete is very individual in their development and progression. Many swimmers spend multiple sessions in PreComp to fully ready them for the next level of either the Competitive Team or the SwimFit program.
Do I need to give up other sports if I swim with NAC?
NAC realizes that young children should participate in a variety of sports and activities. As a program, we want to foster the love of the sport while encouraging our athletes to stay engaged and develop coordination and athleticism on a variety of platforms. Many of our swimmers are very involved in other activities and have found a nice balance which allows them to experience it all.
