PNSC's popular Time Trials event will be held Saturday, November 3rd for Yellow and Grey Groups and Sunday, November 4th for Red and Blue Groups.

We strongly encourage all swimmers to participate in this event: this is a great opportunity to monitor progress from last May's Time Trial, catch up with all the swimmers from the same group and receive Progress Reports.

Parents should note that in order for swimmers to access the pool during their practices they may be asked to provide proof of PNSC Membership.

Swimmers must follow all pool regulations, such as:

  • Swimmers may not swim outside their normal practice time without providing payment for community centre use.
  • Parents must pay if they wish to swim at the pool. Any breach of this rule may result in the cancellation of their children's membership

Also, please note the following:

  • The club does not assume any responsibility for lost items; therefore swimmers should not bring valuable items to practices.
  • Parents are expected to wait until their children are in the water before leaving.
  • The club does not assume any responsibility for a swimmer's safety or security before and after practices.
