WHAT IS YOUR WHY ?   “I swim with BAY because the BAY family helped me be who I am today. I grew up with teammates who always pushed me to be my ultimate best not only in swim, but also in my daily life.” -Bailey Donaldson, Senior swimmer

 

SPRING RACE TEAM REGISTRATION OPEN TO ALL: Registration is now open for the Blue and Yellow group swimmers to join us for the March start of the Spring Race Team!   If you’d like to get your first choice of class day/time/location, be sure to register sooner than later!

 

Swimmers in the Gold, JV, JV+, Prep, Varsity and Senior groups do NOT need to register for this “Spring Race Team” session; this is ONLY for those in the Blue/Yellow group.

 

  • The PHS Spring session will run 3/4-5/23 (MW, TTh or M-Th at 5:15, 6:00 and 6:45pm, $480 for twice/week, $720 for 4x/week.) There will be two Saturday Stroke Clinics (4/27 and 5/17) and two Race Nights (4/19 and 5/11.) Read more about these clinics and race nights on the "events" page of the website.

  • The XG Spring session will run 3/4-4/11 (MW 4:00, MW 5:30, TTh 4:00, TTh 4:45, TTh 5:30, TTh 6:15, M-Th 4:00 or M-Th 5:30, $240 for twice/week, $360 for 4x/week.) The session is shorter since the cabana team will start their practice on 4/15 and use the entire pool. This group is great for those BAY swimmers who leave us to join their neighborhood teams in the Spring.

  • Once you have registered, you will receive an email confirmation. Your account will be "Pending Team Approval" until our Winter session ends mid-February. Look for your welcome email towards the end of February!

 

FEBRUARY’S ZONE CHAMPS: Our meet guide will be emailed to all those who are RSVPed for the big team meet this weekend.  Be on the lookout for it tomorrow! Remember, all families are required to volunteer for a shift over the weekend. Job signups are available on the events page.

 

LIFEGUARD TRAINING: If you have someone in your life who is at least 15 years old and would like to become lifeguard certified, have them check out the link to the class we are offering over February Break.

 

SUMMER EMPLOYMENT: Come join our team! We are hiring for summer swim instructors, coaches, lifeguards and office staff.  Our swimmers are the best, the perks are outstanding and the community is second to none. Email resumes to office@swimsouthbay.org !

 

SUMMER SWIM LESSON REGISTRATION: Our swim school registration is now open for our seasonal swim lesson program at PHS: www.swimatpres.org .  Saturday classes in May and weekday (M-Th) sessions in June and July.  If you like to plan ahead of time, it is beneficial to register for these one-on-one lessons early as they do fill up quickly.  We’ve already had 200 swimmers register within the first week of the system opening! Let’s all day dream about sunny days and make safe swimming kids a reality!!!

 

PRIVATE LESSONS: Looking for a bit of “tutoring” for your swimmer?  Check out the “Events” tab/ “Private Lessons” link for available one-on-one lessons for your swimmer.  All lessons are held at PHS, coached from out of the water, are 25 minutes in length and $30/lesson billed to your BAY account.
