ZONE CHAMPS MEET: Thank you to all the parents who volunteered to make this meet run. Without you, the swimmers would not have been able to achieve all they did! The ribbon haul was tremendous and will be available for pickup by tomorrow at each of the pools. The weather cooperated and the water was warm. We had 72% lifetime bests and we are so proud of the level of effort, stroke corrections and attention to technique that was given by our swimmers. Your coaches were VERY happy!
SUMMER SWIM LESSON REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN: Tell your friends! Our seasonal swim school is now accepting registration for our Saturday lessons in May and weekday sessions starting after Memorial Day. Classes fill up quickly (over 200 kids have already registered for the program.) These are a great way to hone your skills or teach someone who has never learned before. The program is open to water lovers ages 6 months-adult! www.swimatpres.org
SPRING RACE TEAM REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN: Registration is open to the public. If your blue or yellow group swimmer is interested in joining us for the Spring session (beginning March 2), please be sure to register them before your preferred class fills up. 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 3/2-5/21 (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 (dates TBD) and two Race Nights (dates TBD.)
The XG Spring session will run 3/2-4/16 (MW, TTh or M-Th at 4:00, 4:45, 5:30 and 6:15pm, $280 for twice/week, $420 for 4x/week. The session is shorter since the cabana team will start their practice in mid-April and use the entire pool.)
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!
If you are uncertain if your swimmer will join us, it's good practice to reserve a spot and select "pay by check" before it fills up. This saves on unnecessary credit card refund fees (they really added up last year!) If your first choice of day/time/location is unavailable, please select a class that would work AND email the office to get on the waitlist that works best for you.
If you end up NOT joining us, please let me know BEFORE we start on 3/2. If you paid by credit card, you will be credited the full amount of the Spring session less the $10 processing fee.
If you are unsure if your Yellow grouper will be invited to the Gold group tryout, the best thing to do is register for the next session of the Race Team to ensure a spot. The coaches evaluate the swimmers during the final two weeks of the session and we will send an email to those who are ready to tryout the next group. If they make it, the fees will be applied to the new group’s pay structure.
If your Blue or Yellow grouper will be taking Spring off, but wants to swim this summer, mark your calendars for 4/1. That is the date when the registration will open for the 6/8-7/21 session (“Summer Race Team”.)
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.
