Reminder: Portola swim team sign ups Monday, June 6 at Portola Pool

The Portola Penguin Swim Team sign-ups are opening Monday, June 6 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Portola City Pool with an open team meeting starting at 6:30 p.m. The group age range is set to being able to do one length of the pool in a lap to join at the lower end of the age range and goes up to age 17. “We are part of Sierra Nevada Swimming under USA Swim,” said coach Jennifer Condliffe. It is $150 to join, including the swimsuit for the team. There will be fundraisers coming up for those who need a scholarship, with money raised going towards the sign up fee. “The idea is that we make it possible financially for more kids to be able to participate in this summer sport,” Condliffe said. “We know that many of our swimmers also do a lot of other sports year-round and it can get expensive.” For more information about the team, contact Jennifer Condliffe at 249-3338.
