Can athlete swim?

We are a competitive swim team and require some minimal swimming proficiency. We are not a swim lesson school. Our training develops good swimmers but they must be able to swim the length of the pool. For new swimmers, there will be an evaluation the first few days of practice. If athlete is not yet a swimmer, the registration fee will be refunded, and athlete will be recommended for swim lessons. Hopefully they will join us next season. *

We are a competitive swim team and members are expected to swim in at least three meets. Membership priority is given to swimmers who will race in meets. Athletes who join for training but not racing will only be accepted if there's space. *

  • Swim meets are run solely by the parents. In 2024, PTS will continue to implement a volunteer commitment system to increase parental involvement, promote fairness, and spread volunteer duties throughout the team. 
  • To run an efficient meet, each home meet needs 70 volunteer positions to be filled by team parents. 
  • We anticipate having 6 meets plus Champs this season which will require many volunteers. 
  • If your Tiger Shark is swimming in a meet, please make every effort to volunteer that day in some way. The more people we have helping, the more likely we’ll be able to run a smooth, efficient meet where everyone is happy! 
  • With all of us working together, we can make sure all positions are covered equally by families, and our meets run smoothly.
