Spring 2018, Swim and Dive Team Details


Spring 2018 - Swim and Dive Team Info -

PCC season is right around the corner!  Here’s what you need to know right now:

  • The first day of practice is May 29th (there will not be an "evaluation day" this year.)  Evening practices are open to all swimmers who are considered water safe and are able to swim four (4) laps of freestyle without stopping.  Children who are interested in being a part of our team (and who will be 5 by June 1st), but aren't able to swim 4 laps of freestyle, are welcome to come to the first morning practice on June 11th at 11:30.

  • Afternoon practices will run May 29th - June 7th. 

    • 5 - 6 p.m. will be for 10 & unders

    • 6 -7 p.m. will be for 11 and older

    • In addition to swim gear, swimmers should also wear/bring a pair of sneakers and appropriate attire for dryland and stretching.

  • There will be no separate swim and dive kick off meeting this year.  We will incorporate the parents meeting into the time trial sessions while our athletes are warming up.  Please be reminded that you are required to sign up to work during the time trial session your child(ren) attends.

  • Registration is open!  Simply go to the team website, and on the right hand side of the home page, you’ll see a link that says “Register for 2018”.  Just click on the link and follow the steps.  This must be completed by returning team members, as well as new team members. 

    2018 Fees per child

    $120 – 1 Competitive Team (swim or dive)

    $180 – Both Competitive Teams (swim and dive)

    $450 - Family cap

    *There is a $10 discount/child for all returning members, if you register and pay by May 11.  As we do not use the online billing feature of Team Unify, please total your 2018 fee's on your own (your pre-registration will show $0 is due) before sending in your check.  

  • All registrations and payments must be completed by Friday, June 1st in order to be a full and active member of the team (see the team handbook for what this includes).

  • Upon completion of the online registration, please drop off a check at the club during office hours, or mail it to:

    Pennypacker Country Club Swim and Dive Team

    Suite 390

    256 Eagleview Boulevard

    Exton, PA 19341

  • There will be two options for time trials again this year – Sunday morning, June 3 (9 a.m. meet start), or Monday evening, June 4 (5:30 p.m. start).  All new & returning swimmers of any level are required to attend one of these options.  The only exception is for Open swimmers, who are automatically placed on the Varsity team, and therefore are not required to attend time trials. A parent is required to volunteer at the time trials their child is participating in.

    • Parents with swimmer participating in the Sunday morning TT session should arrive by 8:15 a.m. for the meeting.

    • Parents with swimmer participating in the Monday evening TT session should arrive by 5 p.m. for the meeting.

  • Thank you to those of you who have volunteered to take on chair and coordinator positions for the 2018 season!  We still have a few open volunteer slots that will be shared at a later time.  

  • An updated Swim Team Handbook can be found in the swim team tab in the team website.  We have made a few changes and additions.  Please be sure to take the time to read through the handbook, as it answers most (if not all!) of the questions you may have about the swim team!

  • Please make sure to check out the team calendar.  Many events are already listed (and though there are meets listed, they won’t be made “live” for swimmer commitments or job sign ups until after the JV and Varsity rosters are finalized in June).

  • Team suit and cap will be the same as last year.  If you need to purchase a new suit, you can do so at Toad Hollow.  Spirit wear details will be provided in the coming weeks.

  • Additional dive team details will be sent out in the coming weeks.

  • Please let us know if your child will not be participating this season, so we can delete them from the roster and our email system.

  • Feel free to share this email/info with anyone you think may be interested in joining our team!!!

 We are looking forward to working with our team again this summer.  We hope it will be another fun season filled with happy memories for our kids and our families!

Happy spring!
