USA Swimming Introduces New Membership Category

In September 2018, USA Swimming will be offering a new membership category for those who want to try the sport of competitive swimming. The Flex Membership is an entry level membership and allows the athlete to compete in up to two meets per year. It can easily be converted to a full membership if the athlete wants to upgrade. Potomac Valley Swimming will be offering this new membership option, but it will be up to each individual club whether they want to offer it to their members.

To read more about this new opportunity, visit the USA Swimming Website. If you have any questions, contact the PVS Administrative Vice Chair, Tim Husson.

Pictures Wanted

I am always on the lookout for more pictures to use on the PVS home page. If you took pictures at any meets and are willing to share them with PVS, please send them to me. They need to be pictures that can be cropped to the 5:2 format. I am interested in pictures of swimmers, coaches, officials and other volunteers that make up PVS. I retain sole discretion on which pictures to use on the website -- Webmaster
