To be on the swim team, all swimmers must be full members of the pool. The Pebble Creek HOA allows for a limited number of non-resident pool memberships. All outside memberships requests need to be directed to the HOA – 804-559-9088.
So, if you or your swimmer know of any families who may want to join but don’t live in Pebble Creek, please reach out to them, and let them know they can swim with us.

We are thrilled to bring back the Mini Mite program for the 2022 Swim Season!
For those who don’t know, Mini Mites is a program that the Pebble Creek Swim Team has for children that can swim, but they are not quite ready to compete in a swim meet. This can be for any number of reasons. For example: they aren’t strong enough swimmers to get all the way across the pool on their own, or they are a little apprehensive when it comes to swimming in a meet.
Each Mini Mite is a full member of the swim team in all ways. The focus for the swimmers in this program will be to get them ready to compete in the swim meets.
How do I know if my child is ready for Mini Mites?
· Your child must be able to swim, the Mini Mite program is not the same as swim lessons for non-swimmers.
· They should be comfortable putting their head in the water with goggles on.
· They should be able to do a strong, fast, and sustained flutter kick on their stomach, with intermittent paddling and breathing. Ideally, they should be able to do this for ~10 meters (almost halfway across the pool)
· They should be somewhat comfortable with physical separation from parent/guardian and an ability to follow instructor directions.
Still not sure? No worries, the swim team will schedule evaluations at the beginning of the season for the potential Mini Mites, where you will have the opportunity to speak with the coaching staff while they evaluate your swimmer. We will also have the board and members of the coaching staff at our Open House to answer any questions you may have.
This year all of the GRAL season meets will be in person (no more virtual meets!). We will have 3 Home meets and 3 Away meets. See below for the Meet schedule:

Coach in Training (CIT) Program
The Coach in Training (CIT) program is an opportunity for our older swimmers to help with the team while earning volunteer hours for school or other youth programs.
The CIT program is limited to swimmers who are:
· Active members of the swim team
· 13 and older
CITs are our swimmers who kids in younger age groups look up too, model after and take instruction from.
An interest form will be sent out to all members and there will be a meeting for those interested with the Head Coach at Open House.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the pool!
