PAC Coaches are available on a limited basis for private lessons. If a swimmer is interested in a private lesson they should first contact their primary site coach. If their primary coach is unavailable to conduct the lesson, they will direct the swimmer to another PAC coach. At no time should a coach from another team be contacted for private swim lessons. At this time lessons may not be conducted at any Portland Parks Facility or Mt. Hood Aquatic Center. Coaches may conduct private lessons at other facilities which they have an agreement to do so.
Many swimmers on PAC will have the opportunity to attend a swim camp. Attending a swim camp can be a very motivational experience. They can also provide an opportunity for swimmers to connect with other athletes and coaches form the local swimming community or around the country. There are camps designed for all ages and abilities of swimmers. Some focus on training while other are more geared towards skill development. On occasion PAC will inform you about swim camps we feel are a good opportunity. Please choose your camps wisely (keep your goals in mind) and contact your coach before you commit to a camp. Many camps can be fun, educational, and motivating, but the camps hosts do not necessarily have our competition and training schedule in mind when they plan their camps.
