Parent Advisory Committee

When a swimmer becomes a member of the team, her/his parents or guardians are automatically invited to become members of the Swim Team Parent Advisory Committee. The PAC is led by an elected President, Secretary, coach(es), and Y Administrative staff. Other officers may be appointed as needed. The meetings are open to all parents/guardians of swim team members. The primary purpose of the Parent Advisory Committee is the overall support of the swimmers, coaches, and Y program. This support can manifest itself in many ways and venues, such as hosting competitions, social events, fundraising, officiating, team and meet management, communication, parent orientation, event planning, etc.

PAC meetings are generally held each month, usually on the second Tuesday evening to accommodate as many swim team families as possible. Meetings will be held at 6:00pm in the birthday room next to KidZone unless other notice is given.

One of the major roles of the Parent Advisory Committee is sharing information with all swim team families. Because we have several practice groups and schedules, it is very difficult to have all parents present at one particular time. Therefore, the primary means of sending information and responding to questions and volunteer needs is by email. Please make sure that both the coach and the members of the Advisory Committee have your email information, and that you read and respond to the emails that are sent.
