Registration Groups and Fees 18-19

PWAC recognizes that swimming is both a team and an individual sport with each swimmer having different needs and priorities.  We offer flexibility as a one size fits all model is ineffective and unrealistic.  Whether your swimmer wishes to train and compete, just train, or just compete, PWAC will accommodate. The only thing that is constant across the board is that EVERY​ swimmer will have the benefit of the best professional coaching staff on the east coast.

  • Our Rookies and Training Group fees are monthly to give families the flexibility to decide if swim training is seasonal or year-round. Year round training is an option for all swimmers.

  • Once training begins, the coaches may consult parents to discuss changes in group assignment.  The goal is for all swimmers to improve and move up.
