PVAC Week 2 Recap

Dear PVAC Families,

We had a wonderful weekend of fundraising for PVAC!! Thank you to everyone who supported our fundraisers this weekend by volunteering, eating pancakes, and donating clothing and electronics. A special thank you to the organizers of the fundraisers, Kristy Crothers, Beth Keenan, and Frank Giordano. We had a wonderful volunteer turnout at the Applebee’s pancake breakfast and our swimmers provided exceptional service!  We also collected a lot of donations at the clothing and electronics drive. If you still have electronics that you want to donate, please reach out to Frank Giordano this week at [email protected]

Mock Meet Volunteers - Job Signup

Parents - this is a great time to try out a job you've never done before, so that you feel comfortable to sign up for that job in a meet. Please see the job signup on the website.


Mock Meet Set Up & Clean Up- IMPORTANT

Mock Meet Set up begins at 5pm. We need as many parents as possible to learn how to set up a meet. This is crucial to ensure our home meets will start on time and run smoothly during the regular season.  We especially need Boys Parents to learn the process of setting up a meet, as the boys’ parents that typically do this have older swimmers and will soon be exiting the program. We need parents of younger swimmers to learn the process. We also need all parents to help clean up after the meet as there is a Community Ed event following the Mock Meet, so we need everything to be cleaned up and back in order by 8:30.

Spiritwear Sale - Deadline 10/6/19  

As the weather has turned to a crispy fall the last few days, it's a great time to get your swimmer a new pair of PVAC flannel PJ bottoms or a sweatshirt! To order your spiritwear visit:
