Good Afternoon PAY Parents and Swimmers,

Welcome to our new weekly newsletter! We hope this will be a source of updated team info & news items, in an easily accessible format. As always, if you have any questions, please contact Kate Baganski or one of your swimmer's coaches.

Coaches Corner:

  • May schedule has been posted to our website - please click here for details
  • Thank you to all of you who were able to attend one of our age group parent meetings in the last week.
  • Once again, please join us in welcoming Coach Kaitlin Knecht to the team. Kaitlin grew up in the Lionville area and currently resides there with her family.  She has over 21 years of coaching experience and her passion lies with the 8 & Unders.  She will be primarily working with the Blue, Bronze, and Silver groups.  We are incredibly excited to have her join our talented team of coaches and are looking forward to the energy, enthusiasm, knowledge, and experience she will bring to our group. Stop by the pool deck and say hello!

All records must be achieved in Short Course Yards, during the Winter Season, while representing PAY. Our volunteers will update both the Boys and Girls team records on the website at the end of the season. Keep your eyes peeled for our new record banners which will be hung on the pool deck in the coming weeks.
