The Panama City Swim Team is a year-round competitive swimming program sanctioned through United States Swimming (USS), the national governing body for competitive swimming. The program has been in existence since 1954, first as the Panama City Swim Club, and later as the Panama City Swim Team (PCST).
PCST is a not for profit, parent run organization, that was founded with the mission of building and promoting youth swimming in Bay County, FL. Although our ultimate goal is to offer a comprehensive training environment for competitive swimming, we would like to emphasize that there are different age & performance groups for kids and young adults. From a developmental point of view we can say that the sooner the swimmers start enjoying the fun in the water and learning the right movements the more they can benefit from the ongoing - year round in-door training & activities we offer. Feel free to come visit us for a practice session and discover for yourself what it is to be a Tsunami.
PCST has a diverse staff of coaches to provide for the needs of the swimmers at each stage of their development. The parents of our swimmers provide support for the program from organizing and conducting all local competitions, providing team incentive programs, socials and fundraising efforts to supporting coaches’ travel to meets, as well as purchasing any specific equipment needs that may arise. Because we are a parent run organization we strongly encourage parent participation and communication is encouraged and always welcome. In the event you do decide to CATCH THE WAVE we hope you and your swimmer will have as many successful experiences as possible and that competitive swimming becomes a source of fond memories for your child.
