Plain Township Swim and Dive Team

New Albany, Ohio


                                        PTAC Gators

The swim team was started in 2003 and is a fun summer organization for children age 5 up to the age of 18. Anyone can be on the swim & dive team if they can swim one length of the pool without stopping or touching the bottom. There are also COSA meets for beginning swimmers who are not quite ready for regular meets. The COSA swimmers will practice with the rest of the team; however, their meets are on Saturday instead of Wednesday.

The swim team is a member of the Greater Columbus Swim League (GCSL), which is made up of 7 local swim teams (Delaware, Gahanna, Highlands Park, Northwest, Westerville JC, Worthington and Plain Township). Participants MUST be a member of PTAC as required by the league. The swim team is run by a board of volunteer parents in conjunction with Plain Township, which provides the facility and supports the team. Parents are asked to volunteer their time during swim meets.



Registration is set for May 21st at the Township Pool. We will be located near the concession stands from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Click HERE to access the registration package.  All swimmers and divers must be a member of the Plain Township pool in order to participate on the team.  

Please make sure to attach a copy of your membership receipt to your registration. The township is going to a key fob system, therefore there will no longer be pass numbers. Registration deadlines are as follows: 
Returning families:  registered by May 21st. New families: registered by May 28th. 

Returning and new families can mail their packages to the P.O. Box on the form or bring them to the pool on the 21st.  Mailed in packages must be postmarked by the deadline dates listed.

Team T-shirts
Orthodontist, James T. Hutta, will be sponsoring the team and providing team shirts for each swimmer and diver.  There is a T-shirt form in the package which must be returned with your registration.  

In addition to these T-shirts, families can purchase additional shirts for other family members. They are $12.00 each.  A separate check will be needed to purchase additional T-shirts and made out to PTAC Swim and Dive.
