Frequently Asked Questions
- Q: Who is eligible to register and swim for PGST?
A: Anyone ages 4 to 18 who can swim are eligible to join. Swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool (25 yards) by the end of May. **NOTE: Please keep in mind that this is NOT swim lessons, but rather a recreational, yet competitive swim team. The drop date is May 25th for those who do not wish to continue. Refunds will be given less a $35 fee.
- Q: Are there volunteer obligations?
A: Volunteering is mandatory. If your child swims, you volunteer. We have lots of positions, and there is something for everyone. We cannot run meets without you. If you fail to meet your volunteer obligations, there is a mandatory fine of $250.00.

A: For non-Pecan Grove Country Club members, the cost for the 1st child is $170, and the cost for every subsequent child is $150. For PGCC members in good standing, the cost for the 1st child is $125, and the cost for every subsequent child is $105. Registration includes team shirt and awards.
