News and Announcements
Welcome back to Parkway Swim Club for another great season! The board is anxious to start the new season by offering new spirit wear, face masks, and a “Commemorative 2020 T-shirt” for this year! Orders will be taken until Friday September 4th. All orders will be distributed either at our first meet or by pick up. Please feel free to contact Trish VanValkenburgh (email@example.com) for any further information. We look forward seeing you in our new gear this fall! https://parkwayswimclub2020.itemorder.com/sale
If you are interested in joining Parkway Swim Club, please reach out to Coach Kian Quigley to get secure a spot to get evaluated.
WHEN???? We are holding evaluations Monday, August 31st at Parkway North High School at 6:00pm.
We are still limited on the number of people we can have in the pool at a time, so in order for us to create a schedule you will need to fill out the google form that Coach Kian will send to you. This will help us get an idea of how many to expect.
We will be reaching out around the end of the week with the arrival schedule. If you are unable to make the tryouts that night let Coach Kian know: Kquigley1@parkwayschools.net
After a 4 month long break, we are happy to be back in the water. It’s been almost 2 weeks since we have started back up and we are excited for the future of Parkway! Thank you for showing how #pkwystrong you are in all your dryland and help #setthestandard in this great program! We missed you all and are happy to be back!
Parents, do not forget to fill out this waiver and pass it to your swimmers coach. All swimmers will need to fill this out and return it to their coach before they can swim. If you have any questions, please reach out to your main coach for further instructions.

Parkway Swim Club becomes the second team in Ozark LSC to be Safe Sport Recognized! Thanks to EVERYONE for all their efforts!
Dear Club Members,
I am pleased to share that our club has received a Safe Sport Recognized Club status. We are committed to providing a safe, healthy, and positive environment here on this team, and we have received recognition for all of our efforts to this end.
Through USA Swimming’s Safe Sport Program, we submitted our Athlete Protection Policies, safeguarding procedures, and educational engagement, including
• Our travel, electronic communication, and anti-bullying policies;
• Our team honor codes and codes of conduct;
• The processes by which we recruit and train staff;
• Our communication procedures;
• And our efforts to educate about Safe Sport, abuse prevention, and healthy boundaries.
All of these items were reviewed by USA Swimming Safe Sport staff. Our Safe Sport Recognized status will run for 2 years, after which time we will be eligible to renew by reviewing all of our policies and procedures again.
We are excited to have achieved this milestone and demonstrate our commitment to providing a Safe Sport environment on this team. Please contact our Safe Sport Coordinator (Chris Etherington; firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
