The Tiger Tank at Terra Nova High School is now home to a new COMPETITIVE USA Swimming age group swim team, for youth aged 6 to 18—the Pacifica Platypus Swim Club (PPSC).  PPSC is a competitive swim program which exists to develop camaraderie and self-esteem, encourage physical fitness, and promote excellence, so that young people can mature into valuable contributors to society. The PPSC swim program encourages young people to develop the characteristics of self-discipline and dedication. They will learn the importance of setting and achieving goals which will help them succeed not only in swimming but also in life away from the pool.  The coaching staff will prepare the team to compete in local swim meets and will help the swimmers achieve “A” times as well Junior Olympic and Far Western qualifying times. PPSC has set a goal to sign up 100 swimmers by the end of the year. In addition to swim meets there will periodically be various team functions such as field trips, barbeques and pizza parties. The Terra Nova pool is currently closed for renovations. Please check the practice calendar for the location and time for practices.

The Terra Nova pool will re-open January 18, 2018 and PPSC will start holding practices June 1, 2018.

PPSC Swimming – Get Started!

Thanks for your interest in joining the PPSC Swim Program. PPSC is a program that welcomes all levels of skill and experience, and we’re happy to have the chance to offer you a high quality training environment for whatever your personal goals may be.

Quarterly Commitments:

As a PPSC swimmer you have three registration options – registering as either a monthly or quarterly member or a drop-in member. As a monthly or quarterly member, you pay one flat fee for the full session and all workouts are open to you. As a drop-in member you pay each time you attend a workout. We encourage people to register as monthly or quarterly members if they plan to attend at least a couple of workouts per week.

Drop In Memberships:

In order to make it easier and more convenient to be a drop-in member, you may also simply pay a one-day drop-in fee at the pool.

USA Swimming Memberships:

All PPSC swimmers must be current members of USA Swimming prior to participating in any  workouts. Proof of membership must be demonstrated before you are allowed to train. If you are attending your first workout with PPSC, please be prepared to show the on-deck coach your membership card. Note that USA memberships are done on an annual basis, therefore memberships must be renewed and demonstrated at the start of every calendar year.
