HAPPY SUMMER Fighting Fish!  Summer has officially started; I was so excited to see so many swimmers at the pool this weekend! 

Our first practice is on Friday; please be prepared for low temps in the morning, we will communicate any practice changes due to weather via email and FB post.  Please have your swimmers bring extra towels and warm clothes for after practice if the temps are low.

We have a very LARGE team this year; we are so excited to have so many swimmers join us this season.  Please give the coaches some grace at the first few practices as we work with all our swimmers to find the best fit for them during their practice times.

We have our FIRST Dine-Out Fundraiser on Wednesday at Chipotle (next to Sam's Club), please show the flyer when you order to help raise money for PHSC (flyer is attached & can be shared on FB). 

Kona Ice will be at the pool on Friday from 1-5pm.

Our FIRST Swim Team practice is Friday June 3rd.
Beginner Swim Team will begin the week of June 7th.

Beginner Swimmers were a NEW group to PHSC in 2020 and 2021 created to accomodate needs of younger swimmers who aren't ready for swim team committments, this group was created for non-swimmers 8 and younger who will only come to practice twice a week (assigned times) and will not participate in swim meets.  This is perfect for the new swimmer who needs to gain more confidnence this summer.    Keep in mind practices for Beginners will need to be on Mondays/Wednesdays or Tuesdays/Thursdays to work with our swim team schedules and coach times; practice time to be determined soon and posted with practice schedule.

Practice schedules will be posted before Memorial Day weekend.
 

Update 3/25/2021

The summer of COViD 2020 at PHSC was FUN, but with significant modifications to practice format and schedules due to the restrictions. We are hopeful that most or all of the restrictions will be over by the time we begin our season. Our plan is to accept registrations for the 2021 season as normal with our normal practice schedule AND no limits on registration numbers.

If ANY changes happen with the COVID protocols, we will communicate as much as we can prior to the start of the season.  Any family will be eligible for a full refund of fees if they choose to opt-out of participation due to the restrictions.

Although unlikely, IF the team size must be reduced prior to season starts, returning families will be given priority, followed by registration dates of additional families (first-come, first-served).
