Hello Pebble Creek Families,
Welcome to Swim Season 2021!
The PCST Board had been working extremely hard to put policies and procedures in place in order to meet the Governor’s Executive Orders along with keeping the wellbeing, health, and safety of your child, similar to how we proceeded for the 2020 season.
We are excited to have our Piranhas back in the pool, but things will work a little differently than in years past. Below is a listing of key topics that will be slightly different than in year’s past.
Registration is now officially open!! Registration fee will be $115 per child.
When you register your child, you will also be required to sign acknowledgement of COVID-19 Policies and Procedures. Please note, the policies and procedures will continue to be updated as new guidelines will be released by our Governor and will be communicated to you.

Practice will start May 24. The season will go through July 14, which Champs practices continuing through the week after.
We are excited to offer many different practice options this year.
WHILE WE ARE IN SCHOOL Practice Times: May 24th – June 17th
Monday through Friday
10 & under 6:30 p.m. – 7:15 p.m.
11 & up 7:15 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
SUMMER Practice Times: June 21st – July 14th
Practice times have been set up to allow for a limited number of people on the pool deck and allow each child to be swimming and exercising as much as possible during their allotted practice time. Similar to last year, we will be asking swimmers to arrive to practice a few minutes early to get a health screening and be ready to swim at their allotted time.
Practice times are determined by your child’s age. Practices will run Monday- Friday for the AM.
7a.m. to 7:45 a.m. – ages 8 and under
7:45 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. – ages 9 to 12
8: 30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. – ages 13 and older
- Please NOTE: Practice times may change depending on registration numbers/ pool availability
- Your child may ask to swim a different practice group depending on ability. This will be discussed with you the first week of practice.
Swimmers MUST BE off the pool deck by 9:15 a.m. in order for the guards to prepare to open the pool for homeowners.
For those that need evening practice during the Summer, we are excited to offer practice on Monday and Tuesday nights. We do have a cap on the number of swimmers that can be on deck for the evening practices. We will set the age groups once we get an idea on numbers.
Evening Practices – Monday and Tuesday Only
Ribbons Practices will be held on Mondays from 7-7:15
11&Up 715-8pm D
Mini Mites is a program that the Pebble Creek Swim team has had for children that can swim, just not all the way across the pool. Given the hands-on approach that is required and the limited space we have for practice, Mini Mites will not be offered for the 2021 swim season. We apologize to those families that this decision impacts as this decision was not taken lightly. We are hoping you will join us in 2022 when we have greater latitude for swim practice time and space.
Swim Meets- GRAL (Greater Richmond Aquatic League) Season
This year, GRAL season can occur and the swim meets will be virtual. This means that we will swim all meets at the Pebble Creek pool and the team will not travel to other facilities. Meet times will be flexed not to impede the opening or closing of the Pebble Creek pool to other homeowners who do not participate in the swim team. The other team will swim at their pool and the times will be combined to run the meet. Ribbons will be provided as always.
- Wednesday, Jun 9th @ 6:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, June 15th @ 6:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 23rd @ 6:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 30th @6:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, July 7th @6:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, July 14th @6:30 p.m.
The Coach in Training (CIT) program will continue for 2021. Our Coaches in Training program (CIT) is available for anyone over the age of 13 to participate. It is a volunteer position with assigned practice times given based on YOUR availability. CITs are our swimmers who kids in younger age groups look up too, model after and take instruction from. It is a great opportunity to get volunteer hours for school if those are needed for your program. If interested in this program, see a coach.
The Pebble Creek Swim Team’s mission is to bring the community together in a fun, friendly, athletic, and competitive atmosphere to promote youth swimming, provide opportunities for swimmers to improve their skills, and encourage neighbors to socialize.
