Panther Swim Club: Journey to Nationals!
Help send 25 dedicated swimmers to The Collegiate Club Swimming & Diving National Championships at Georgia Tech (April 7-9), for the second time in Panther Swim Club history!
After a very successful first trip to Nationals last year, we are excited to head back to the competition this year and do even better. All 25 of the swimmers competing have worked incredibly hard this year to make qualifying times to be able to attend this meet, and are continuing their hard work to be speedy in the pool. We’re asking for your help to alleviate travel and meet costs for the swimmers.
About our team:
Panther Swim Club (PSC), founded in 2011, is an award-winning organization run by students at the University of Pittsburgh. PSC is made up of students with all levels of capabilities, from experienced swimmers that have been swimming their whole life, to swimmers who have never participated in competitive swimming before. Regardless of skill level, we have all become part of a team that feels more like a family, and we hope to continue this growth in seasons to come.
2017 Nationals will be held on Friday, April 7th through Sunday, April 9th in Atlanta, Georgia at Georgia Tech. One hundred teams from across the country will travel to swim with over two thousand swimmers. Last year, six swimmers from PSC made it back to finals, which means they finished among the top 20 in the country. The rest of the team swam wonderfully as well with many college career personal bests and even some life time personal bests. As we approach Nationals for the second time, we would like to have an even more successful meet with both veterans and rookies competing for our team.
