GO WAHOOS !!!
The Sportsmanship Award, awarded at the conclusion of each season,
has been won by the Wahoos two separate seasons since its inception.
The recipient of this award is selected by vote from each Division I team.
Success in this category starts with the parents and coaches and reflects every member of our team
We're here to make sure our kids have fun, a great team experience
and (maybe even) develop a love of the sport
Unsportsmanlike behavior will not be tolerated

FAQ for new swimmers
Q. My daughter has gymnastics on Tuesdays and can't make practice. Can she still join the team?
A. Yes, make every practice you can to become a stronger swimmer. Besides, it's fun. If you have a prior commitment, honor it.
Q. My son can swim but I'm not sure he can swim 25 meters unassisted. Should he join the team?
A. Yes, but he may not participate in a meet unless he demonstrates he can swim 25 meters without hanging on the lane line. If swim school is
the right place for him, our coaches will let you know. He can always join next year!
Q. Why do parents have to volunteer?
A. It takes A LOT of people to run a meet.
The good part is it's fun to meet other parents and see your kids having a great time.
