Hello, and on behalf of the PCS Parent Association Board, I hope that everyone is staying safe

involved in trying to provide continuity during these times.

COVID-19 exposing thin financial margins of Canada's Olympic athletes

COVID-19 Update: March 22

We understand this is a difficult time for everyone including the swimmers and families as our daily routines have changed so considerably.

As we have had to completely curtail from pool training, we are trying to keep as many of our great coaches on at least a partial salary as we can, while also trying to weather this challenge in a manner that keeps our PCS families safe.

Our actions so far have included:

1.       Elimination of all fees from the families of swimmers in the D-2, D-1, Stroke & Fitness, and Lightning Fast Swim Series programs.
