Parent Information

How to sign up for events!

USA Swimming has amazing information about competitive swimming and parent education.  The following link will take you to the Parent Education section of USA Swimming:  http://www.usaswimming.org/DesktopDefault.aspx?TabId=1503&Alias=Rainbow&Lang=en.

On this page, you will find lots of information such as the the parent welcome kit, benefits of youth swimming, the USA Swimming Safe Sport information and about any other topic you can think of.  PCS highly encourages you to spend some time browsing through the wide variety of topics.  We suggest the following areas:

Swimming 101:  http://www.usaswimming.org/DesktopDefault.aspx?TabId=1696&Alias=Rainbow&Lang=en

The Parent Education Library:  http://www.usaswimming.org/DesktopDefault.aspx?TabId=2208&Alias=Rainbow&Lang=en

And most importantly, don't ever hesitate to contact a coach with any questions you might.  Don't forget that to talk to the coach before or after practice.  On deck, the time belongs to your swimmers!
