Pleasant Valley Swim Team (PVST) is a year-round competitive swimming organization that has been developing outstanding community members in Camarillo and Ventura County for over 50 years. We train out of the Adolfo Camarillo High School Aquatic Center and the environment-controlled indoor Pleasant Valley Aquatic Center - the only indoor facility in Ventura County. We are a member club of USA Swimming and the Southern California Swimming local swim committee, and are sponsored by the Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District. 

PVST accepts new age group members aged 6-18 on an ongoing basis. A swim tryout is required for prospective new age group members for minimum skills assessment and group placement. More information is available on the Joining PVST under Team Info. We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team. Thank you for your interest in joining us - we are looking forward to meeting you!

PVST teaches life skills through competitive swimming activities, goal setting, time management, accountability, and responsibility. We are a proud organization that fosters strong character development in our student-athletes, preparing them for successful careers in school, college, and beyond.

I believe that there are three types of things in life. Good things, better things, and best things. You should work to prioritize the "best" things in your life. I know for myself, swimming has changed my life for the better in more ways than I ever thought possible. My hope is that swimming becomes one of the "best" things in your life and that you work hard to achieve your goals. I have a firm belief that you can reach your personal goals for swimming if you plan, simplify, and be strong.
