PacSwim Update:

Hello, my name is Kate Aubrecht and I am an athlete representative for PacSwim. What athlete representatives do is bring the athlete’s perspective to important discussions about the future of swimming- like new rules about scratching, for example, or where championship meets are held, and everything in between. We meet periodically to discuss within our zone or committee. Personally, I’m really glad to be an athlete rep. Already I’ve met a lot of amazing people from other teams that I couldn’t have otherwise, and I enjoy contributing to the sport that is such a big part of my life. I highly recommend becoming an athlete rep! Not only is it rewarding and beneficial to the swimming community, but it’s a lot of fun as well. I hope to see more PST swimmers at the next meeting! http://www.pacswim.org/members/athleterep

2019/20 Season:

Please help the team keep credit card fees down by switching to ACH! PST pays a significant amount in fees each year for dues being paid by credit card.  While it is not free, the team is charged a lesser fee if families use ACH (an electronic debit from a bank account) to pay for dues.  Click here to see how you can make the change in your account.

Board News:

12/16- Next Board Meeting 7:00pm at the Piedmont Police Station, all parents welcome! Any Questions? Please email any of the Board members with questions or concerns.
