Parents Are Wonderful Wizards Too!

Since 1970, the PAWW Parents’ Club has supported and enhanced the Peoria Park District’s swim team. Through sponsorship of USA Swimming meets, team fundraisers, social activities, and annual recognition of all PAWW swimmers, the Parents’ Club has provided many extras that make PAWW special.

Over the years, the Parents’ Club has purchased and donated to the Park District many essentials making our program one of the best in the State of Illinois. 

The Club has done an outstanding job of recognizing the accomplishments of swimmers. Presently, team records for both long course meter and short course yard events are on display on the attractive record boards.

Functions such as  a winter holiday get together & a spring banquet are sponsored by the Club. The Club also provides holiday gifts, championship t-shirts, and team spirit sundries for parents and swimmers.

The Club hosts all home swim meets including PAWW’s Spooktacular, Journal Star and possibly one other major meet. These are the Club’s major fundraising events. To successfully host these meets, we request all parents to volunteer their time and skills. Traditionally PAWW has hosted one of the finest meets in Illinois.

We invite you to help us support our team and children in the pursuit of their swimming goals. By signing your child up for PAWW you have become a member of the PAWW Parents’ Club. Please be an active and helpful member!
