Parent Meeting Notes 2019
Practices are held at Tom Muehlenbeck Recreation Center. We participate in the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation’s (TAAF) swim meets offered across North Texas throughout the summer season. Competing in swim meets is not required but encouraged. Swimmers who have not previously participated in Plano Parks & Recreation swim lessons must try out before registering. For the summer season, new swimmers must register for pre-scheduled tryouts. During the school year tryouts are arranged by request.
See Practice Schedule for current activity details!
