Wahoos Are Back!!!

We are so excited to have a Woodland Wahoos season this year. However, it will look different. The coaches and the board are committed to maintaining the ideals of summer swim team: 50% swim/50% fun. At the end of the summer, each swimmer should improve their strokes and increase their endurance. Each swimmer should have laughed and had a good time with peers. Each swimmer should have enjoyed the feeling of getting out of the pool, feeling tired but refreshed.

At this time we cannot tell you exactly what the season will look like. It will run from June 1st to August 1st.

Most likely, every swimmer cannot attend every meet due to size restrictions. However, every swimmer will have the opportunity to participate in three meets. The meets will be exhibition only, as we will be reducing our volunteer footprint (example – one timer per lane). Some of the youngest swimmers may have mock meets only at the Woodlands Pool, but I assure you they will be fun. Swim practices may be altered or we may have to stagger times/days to abide by state, county, and pool guidelines. Unfortunately, the cost of running a team does not change. We still have all the same fees and expenses despite potentially less practice and fewer meets.

I want you to remember that every board member has children on the team and is volunteering their time. While execution might not be the same as it has been in the past, I can assure you our desired end state is the same: SWIM AND FUN.

Your Wahoos Board

General Information For Those Who Want To Join!

Our swim season begins the Tuesday after Memorial Day and it ends the first weekend in August. The kids practice M-F in the mornings at Woodlands Pool. We have swim meets once a week from mid-June through the end of July - typically our meets are in the middle of the week in the evenings (think Wednesdays, 5-10pm). We end the season with a huge championship meet that runs almost all day on the first Saturday in August.

The meets are staffed by parent/guardians . Volunteering to work at the meets is MANDATORY. The shifts usually last a couple hours. Parents/Guardians are asked to cover 4-6 sessions during the season. Descriptions of the different volunteer positions can be found in the Volunteer tab at the top of this page. 

  All are welcome to join. 
Our older swimmers (age 11-18) swim 50 meters (2 laps) in competition, while our younger swimmers swim 25 meters (1 lap) in competition. We have an AMAZING group of coaches with work on endurance training as well as specific stroke instruction.

Our team is made up of a great mix of kids - some members are year around swimmers while some members have never been on a swim team before. Registering for the team is done entirely online, make sure you check our website for important dates, as our swim groups fill fast...especially the younger age groups. As of now, we are expecting our New Swimmer Registration to take place sometime in mid-April. As soon as the dates are confirmed, they will be up on the website, along with fees and other important information. Hope this gives you a little bit of insight into our team - please feel free to contact us with any questions - and check back often for new information!
