Way to go Penguins! The swim team wrapped up a successful 2019 season!
The 2019 season consisted of 118 swimmers for the Truxtun Park Penguins! There were 20 kids that went to the Bronze meet (7/17), 24 kids that went to the Silver meet (7/20) and 16 kids that went to the Gold meet (7/21).
Check out this video recap of the Penguins Swim Team this summer! Produced by local high school student Sydney Lawrence!
For general questions about practices, meets and volunteering (Parent Reps), the team can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and Coach Jennifer Bistrack.
Please check back in spring 2020 for the next swim team season!
Practices are held Monday through Thursday and start in late May. Fridays will be reserved for optional practice clinics as announced by the coaches.
All Saturday Meets begin at 8:30 a.m. with Warm-Ups starting at 7:30 a.m.
The Championship meets are driven by time standards so we won’t know which meet your child qualifies for until after the first several meets. Entry paperwork for championship meets will be passed out two weeks prior these meets. It is the responsibility of parents to turn the paperwork in on time for children to be able to swim in their championship meet. Specific meet dates TBA.
