The Tiger Tank at Terra Nova High School is now home to a USA Swimming age group swim team, for youth aged 6 to 17.
Pacifica Platypus Swim Club
PPSC is a competitive swim program which exists to develop camaraderie and self-esteem, encourage physical fitness, and promote excellence, so that young people can mature into valuable contributors to society. The PPSC swim program encourages young people to develop the characteristics of self-discipline and dedication. They will learn the importance of setting and achieving goals which will help them succeed not only in swimming but also in life away from the pool.
The coaching staff will prepare the team to compete in local swim meets and will help the swimmers achieve “A” times as well as Junior Olympic and Far Western qualifying times. PPSC has set a goal to sign up 100 swimmers by the end of the year.
In addition to swim meets there will be periodic team social events such as field trips, bbqs, and pizza parties.
