Truxtun Park Penguins

We welcome new and returning swimmers to the Truxtun Park Penguins swim team!

For general questions about practices, meets and volunteering (Parent Reps), the team can be reached at gopenguins7@gmail.com and Coaching Staff, Tom Kramer.

Practice Schedule

Practices are held Monday through Thursday and will start Tuesday, May 30. Fridays wil  be reserved for optional practice clinics as announced by the coaches.

Meet Schedule

All Saturday Meets begin at 8:30 a.m. with Warm-Ups starting at 7:30 a.m.

Championship Meets

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.
