What is Provincial Stream?
The Provincial Stream introduces swimmers to the competitive sport of synchronized swimming. Because of the practice schedule it allows athletes to balance synchro with other activities during the week. Provincial Stream swimmers are expected to commit to our entire ten-month season, attend 6 – 12 hours of practice each week (depending on the skill level they are at) and compete at three or four regional and provincial meets each year.
Provincial Stream Attendance Policy
Synchronized swimming is a team sport and regular attendance and prompt arrival times are important to all members of the team. Athlete absences during the competition season must have coach approval. Unapproved absences may be subject to sanctions according to the Club Discipline Policy. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in the swimmer being withdrawn from the current competition.
Family holidays, vacations and school field trips that include the swimmer should not be planned:
2 weeks prior to any competition for 10 U, 12U, 13-15, and 16-18’s
2 weeks prior to Regionals
3 weeks prior to Provincials
PWS is run entirely by volunteer parents. The Club has a Family Commitment Plan (FCP) to facilitate this effort. Detailed information about the FCP, including volunteer requirements, opportunities, and optional buy-out of volunteer points, is available in the “Family Commitment Plan” document that is made available at registration and is also available on our Team Snap page.
Addressing Parent Concerns
Individual parent concerns should go directly to the Team Coach. Pacific Wave (PWS) Synchronized Swim Club Handbook
parent concerns, progress inquiries, or communication with coaches must occur after a practice or at a mutually convenient time
individual issues or concerns may arise at a team level from time to time; they should be individually addressed at a team level with the coach. If no resolution occurs, then the subsequent step is to contact the Head Coach. If further steps need to be taken, the Chair will be informed, The Chair of the Board may call meetings with other members of the Board, Head Coach, and Team Parent Reps to achieve resolution
