About the Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)


Members of the Cavalier Aquatics swim team Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) are volunteer swim parents who are willing to work on various activities required for the swim team to function well. We welcome new members. Our goal is to have every family actively involved in at least one committee or role. If we can accomplish this, we will avoid having a small group of parents doing multiple jobs. Volunteering is a great way for new Cavalier Aquatics families to meet other Cavalier Aquatics families and feel more a part of our team.


The Cavalier Aquatics swim team PAC's role is to assist the Head Coach to ensure proper operation of Cavalier Aquatics in accordance with the mission, principles, and policies of the YMCA. It is expected by the Piedmont Family YMCA that Cavalier Aquatics will be effectively run under the direct supervision of the Head Coach.  The Coach is responsible for communicating all Piedmont Family YMCA policies, rules, and regulations to swimmers and parents. He is also responsible for ensuring that these policies, rules, and regulations are adhered to by all coaches, parents, and swimmers. The PAC assists the Head Coach in accomplishing the required tasks to ensure that Cavalier Aquatics operates effectively. The Head Coach reports directly to the Piedmont Family YMCA Executive Director.

We appreciate all of the hard work from the PAC to make the Cavalier Aquatics team a huge success.
