PVS Membership Trends and Analysis
At the beginning of 2006, PVS has registered 7021 swimmers representing 36 clubs. This is a 2.4% increase from this point last year when we had 6857 swimmers representing 35 clubs. This also is an 18.2% increase over two years. It is very pleasing that the Olympic year “bounce” has continued for an additional year. Most of the increases in registrations have come from the younger age groups and the good news is that we appear to be retaining most of them. Below are some highlights and comments from the registration data.
In other activities, the application of BWST to be a member of PVS was approved by the National VP for Local Administration in the first test of the new policy adopted last September. The application of the DC Jets is pending. The Jets head coach, James Tramel, has spoken with Pat Hogan and Ira Klein in regard to his application and he is preparing a paper to justify his request to be a member of PVS
