WHERE TO WE PRACTICE?

The Swim Team of Placentia (STOP) practices at Valencia High School in Placentia, at 500 N. Bradford Ave.  Visitors should park at the North end of parking lot near the baseball fields then walk straight back to pool near the track.

 

WHO CAN BE A PART OF THE TEAM?          

The swim team is for any potential swimmer between the ages of 4 - 18.  The team has a variety of programs and groups to meet the needs of all ability levels.  Swimmers do not need to know the mechanics of the strokes.  These skills will be taught to them.

 

HOW DO I START?          

First thing to do is to select "START REGISTRATION" on the right column, or use the "CONTACT US" to e-mail Coach Devon.  Either way, Coach Devon will respond to your e-mail or inquiry.  

Families may come by the pool deck to observe a practice between 5:30 - 7:30 pm, Monday - Thursday.  Coach Devon will be able to speak with you if you have any questions.

On your first day, swimmers should bring goggles and expect to get in and practice.  

 

HOW LONG DO I GET TO DECIDE?          

When an athlete starts, we will activate your account.  However, once you start, you have 7 days to decide if you would like to continue.   If after 7 days you decide that the swim team is not for you, you will not have to pay anything.
