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:

Thank you for participating,

Found at the ONDA Meet at Laney College on 12/14-12/15: Black PST T-shirt. No tags, but looks like it is a youth large, or adult small. It was left on the pool deck. Please contact Alesia Singer (alesia116@me.com) to retrieve it. Thanks!

 

Free: TYR Warmwear Swim Cap, new. It’s supposed to be sized for an adult, but it’s too small for Caleb (11 yo). If your swimmer complains of the cold, this might help! Please contact Alesia Singer (alesia116@me.com) to arrange to get it. Thanks!

 

Free: The Montes Family has a pair of TYR catalyst 2 size medium paddles to give away. Please contact montesalison@gmail.com for more info.
