Our 2019 Swim Season starts May 30th to July 20th.Practices are NOT mandatory, however ,swimmers will get more out of the program if they are able to put more into it.
We compete in the Suburban League of the Greater Lehigh Valley with 6 other teams from throughout the area. We hold half of our meets at home and travel to the other half. Transportation is not provided by the team. Addresses to the meets are in our Address to Suburban league pools Tab.
Registration fee is $65 for one swimmer, $120 for the second swimmer in the same family, and $165 for three or more family members. There is an additional fee of $25 per swimmer for non-members of the Palmerton Pool which gets turned over to the pool.
Each swimmer/family must have a parent representative volunteer at all meets. At home meets, volunteers serve as timekeepers, scorers, runner , stroke and turn judges or work the snack stand,(which is a big fundraiser for our team.) We also ask for food donations for the snack stand from each of our swimmers family.. At away meets, volunteers are needed as timers and at the scorer's table. More info on volunteer positions available here.For more information, review the PST Handbook.
