Throughout the Winter and Spring Sessions, PWSC will plan to
attend one meet per month. During the Summer Session there is
usually a meet every weekend. (Meets will post online as the
information becomes available so please check calendar often.) It
is up to each of you, as parents, to decide if you want your child
to attend a meet. A few weeks before each meet, you will
receive an email where you will be directed to either attend
or decline the meet on the PWSC website
(www.pueblowestswimclub.org). Coach will work with you and
your child to determine which events would be best for your child
to swim. The cost to swim at a meet is generally $3.00 to $4.00 per
event that your child swims in. There is an entry fee at some meets
as well. Billing for the meet will usually occur prior to the meet
and payment will be due with the next months “dues”.

donations. This event is what helps us keep our costs down and is
the main fundraiser for our club. Again, thank you for allowing us
to work with your child, and please feel free to contact the Coach
