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 ( 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 $10.00 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”. (If you sign up for the meet and do not swim the meet, you are still responsible to pay for the events that you missed and the entry fee.)

The PWSC offers team caps for $10.00 each.

Competition suits can be purchased and will generally cost around $45.00 for a male suit and $55.00 for a female suit. 

Periodically, we will also offer the ability to order team shirts for parents and siblings.

We encourage parent involvement. There will be a parent meetings scheduled as needed. Please try and make it to these meetings so that you will remain informed regarding upcoming events and changes.

During meets, parents may be asked to assist with timing, place picking and various other duties so please be prepared to assist. Our swim club will also host at least one meet of our own each year and the only way to make this a success is for parents to contribute their time and assist with duties, finding sponsors and 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 or any Board Member if you have any questions, concerns or comments.
