Pleasant Valley Swim Team

Who We Are

Swim Team The Pleasant Valley Swim Team (PVST) is a year-round competitive swimming organization co-sponsored by the Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District. Although separate entities, the swim team works in conjunction with the district, specifically with Pleasant Valley Aquatic Center, to provide a comprehensive swim program for local youth. The team has been swimming at Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District pools for over 35 years. PVST is a member club of USA Swimming and the Southern California Swimming committee.

The organization is constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well-rounded competitive swim team. Practices and meets are held at Pleasant Valley Aquatic Center – the home of the Pirates - located at 1030 Temple Ave. in Camarillo. Meets are held throughout the year and entry is free to the public. Meets are also held at various pools around Southern California. Check the PVST website for more information.

Swimmers are divided into seven groups based on age and skill. Members range in age from 6-18 years old. Practices are held weekdays and times vary based on group level. Please refer to PVST’s website for specific practice times. Typical practice time ranges from 4-7pm, Monday through Friday.
