Missoula YMCA Swim Team (MYST) Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)
Formed: June 2013
Support our coaches and swimmers by developing a strong, stable, financially sound and athletically productive organization while promoting the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, responsibility and respect.
WHAT IS MYST PAC
MYST PAC is a parent run group that actively supports our swimmers by:
- communicating with parents as parents
- defining specific activities that benefit the coaches and team,
- providing a forum for parents to share their ideas to enhance MYST
- providing the tools and financing to enact ideas adopted by the PAC
All parents/guardians of MYST swimmers are automatically a part of the MYST PAC group. Parents may engage as much or as little as time allows, but as a member will receive all communications from MYST PAC.
The goal is to have parents aware and informed so you can be supportive of your swimmer and their team.
Officers of MYST PAC are elected or appointed as addressed in the By Laws. We hope you will consider taking a turn when you are able.
