Swim Team Special Update and Announcement

If you’re a first time visitor, Five Points will be offering a competitive swim team from September through March.  Registrations will open in August.

For returning swimmers, thank you for supporting our first competitive swim team in our 2017-2018 season!  We hope the experience was a positive one for your child. We certainly learned a lot from last season and we were happy to get to know the families that came aboard. The next competitive swim season is fast approaching and there is a change that we need to inform you on.  Five Points has formed a partnership with Peoria Area Water Wizards.  The PAWW collaboration will provide additional resources needed to consistently deliver a quality swim team experience for our local swimmers at Five Points.

The competitive swim team will still exist at Five Points but operate under the PAWW organization. The swim season will remain the same as well as the practice times you grew accustomed to with an additional Wednesday practice time.  We know you may have questions so we have provided information from Mike Dexter, PAWW Inc. Board President to cover all of the details of the PAWW organization and swim team.  You can also reach Mollie Wright, Aquatics Manager of Five Points at 309-444-8222 x24 or molliew@fivepointswashington.org.

Registrations will begin in August.  We will post the information on our website swim team page and send an email announcement at that time.  Again, we look forward to seeing you back in the pool at Five Points and are here to help you in any way we can.

Thank you,

Mollie Wright, Aquatics Manager
Five Points Washington
