Welcome to the Westcreek Wahoos Swim Team

Registration for the 2018 season is officially closed... please keep an eye for tryouts in May of 2019 for the Summer of 2019! 

Swim Team FAQ for new and returning parents -

 

ü  This is a parent-run, non-profit organization. Upon registering your child, you as the parent, agree that someone from your  oclevolunteer this swim season.  Families of one swimmer agree to sign up for a minimum of 3 sessions during the season as well as one session at the DIVISIONALS, families of multiple children agree to sign up for 4 or more sessions as well as one session at the DIVISIONALS. Please speak directly to the Volunteer Coordinator if you cannot meet these volunteer hours.

ü  Past Swimmers do NOT have to re-tryout, tryouts are for new swimmers only. We suggest you bring your new swimmer to tryouts in his/her swimsuit, hair tied back, with goggles and a towel.

ü  Please keep in mind that this is swim team not swim lessons, it is important that every child have some knowledge of strokes and can swim safely across the pool without assistance of any kind. The coaches will work through the season to improve your child’s knowledge of swim, but he/she must be safe before making the team.

ü  The season will run from the last two weeks of school [with after-school practice] through the second week in July. We will hopefully have 3-4 swim meets, at this time, they will not be held at our own pool. (This may change by the beginning of the season)

ü  Through the season, girls are to wear only one-piece swimsuits and all long hair must be tied back in a ponytail.

ü  This year we are excited to welcome Head Coach of the Brennan Swim Team, Coach Chris Olvera

ü  The swim team is opened to VWOA homeowners who must be up-to-date on assessments, as well as, non VWOA Homeowners. Non-VWOA homeowners will have to pay with cash or credit, as the HOA does not accept checks from non-HOA members.  Fees are as follows:
