2019 Welcome

Spring is coming and that means the pool is about to open and we’re well on our way to seeing each other again. Welcome all, new and old, to the 2019 swim team season. Get ready for another exciting year of fast swims, community events, and long-standing Park traditions.

We had a fantastic season last year! Let’s keep that momentum going! Our awesome executive committee and coaches are well into planning the season, and you can check out what the future looks like on the Calendar page of our newly redesigned website.

Some notable dates on the calendar include:

  • Pool opens on 4/13
  • Gear Days, a chance to see and try on gear, is opening weekend 4/13-4/14 from 12-4pm
  • Clinic registration is also opening weekend, 4/13
  • Swim season begins with after-school practice on 4/29
  • New family orientation and all-team fiesta on 5/19
  • First meet-Time Trials-is on 6/2
  • Summer schedule starts 6/10 (Mornings and early afternoons. We’ll have a practice schedule as soon as we have registration numbers; we have to figure out how to fit all age groups in the pool. Register now!)
  • Stingray Ball is on 6/27
  • OPP Relays is a week early this year on 6/29 (no longer over July 4th weekend)
  • OMPA is 8/2-8/4

The website is now open for registration. Register early to avoid any late fees and get first dibs on volunteer opportunities when they open on 3/15. We’re excited to announce that this year Fall swim is included with general registration. That means Spring, Summer, and Fall practice, meets, and social events are included in the same registration price. For more information, check out the Registration info page of the website.

The Mini Stinger program will be back this summer for children under 6 years old who are not yet able to swim across the pool unassisted. Please note that this program starts after the Summer  practices begin. Swim lessons and practice clinics will be returning as usual!

As our returning families will attest, it is not just the kids who work hard at Park. We could not exist without the hours that our parents volunteer to the team. We thank you for all that you have done for the team and, in advance, for your help in 2019. So, welcome 2019 and....
