Help Us Become a Safe Sport Recognized Club: 

In addition to below, achieving Safesport recognition will give us higher priority in grant considerations.

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:

(LSC: Pacific Swimming | Swim Club:  Piedmont Swim Team)

Thank you for participating, 

Kate Arnold, PST SafeSport Coordinator

From Coach Rob:


“Coach Rob’s SIP Odyssey


Greetings Piedmont Swim Team! I hope you are all navigating these times well. I have been mainly focusing on two things during my SIP.


  1. The other coaches have been focusing much of their time on helping you stay in shape physically through Dryland exercise, yoga and stroke technique. My focus has been on the Mental/Emotional side of sports (and life 🙂). I have done a few handouts and videos on four main subjects:


  1. Deep Breathing

  2. Relaxation

  3. Visualization

  4. Leadership (more to come)


  1. Education. I have so far completed my ASCA (American Swim Coaches Association) Level 4 Leadership school, ASCA Advanced Breaststroke School and ASCA advanced Backstroke School. I have also kept up to date on the latest training ideas and methods through online research.


Personally, my focus has been on not losing my I've been taking daily long walks with my puppy Levi as well have started on a personal training program with resistance bands. Rather than focusing on what I cannot do, I am taking this opportunity to do the things I am usually too “busy” to accomplish!


Stay Strong! Stay Sane! Stay Considerate!


Coach Rob”
