WELCOME BACK!!!

PCA Club Team practices have resumed.  Returning Club members can register online now.

PCA Lessons & Developmental Swimming are suspended for the rest of 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK, WE HAVE SUSPENDED LESSONS AND DEVELOPMENTAL SWIMMING - PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES

Swim Lessons - group-based lessons with roughly a 1:5 instructor to swimmer ratio. Instructors are made up of middle school and high school age swimmers administering a curriculum designed by Coach Jennifer Detlefsen.

Due to the depth and the competition temperature of the pool water, the high school pool is not the best location for very young children. We recommend the Aquatic Center's swim lessons for children younger than 4 years old.
