High School Swim Season Begins

Today, February 10th, the high school swim season begins.  This culminates in early May for most high school swimmers at either their respective school's league championships or the North Coast Section championships.  Throughout the season, we will attempt to highlight those accomplishments by PST swimmers competing for their high school teams. Please email Dirk ten Grotenhuis at dtengrot@gmail.com for any and all highlights for your high school swimmer so that they can be recognized in these updates.  Here is the current listing we have for PST high school swimmers and their respective teams - please send us information on any additions that we have missed so that we can keep this list accurate.  We look forward to supporting and highlighting the efforts of our high school PST swimmers!

Help Us Become a Safe Sport Recognized Club: 

PST is committed to creating an abuse-free, safe, healthy, and positive environment for all of our members. An important feature of this program is that our swimmers (age 12 and older) and parents complete Safe Sport Training for Swimmers and Parents, respectively. The training is about 20 minutes, well done and broadly applicable, even outside of the swimming environment. You can complete the training as a USA Swimming member or nonmember:
