GENERAL INFORMATION

Welcome to the Wakefield Chapel Wahoos Swim Team!  We are excited for the 2019 swim season and look forward to working with all of the Wakefield Chapel Wahoo families whose spirit makes this one of the best swim clubs in the NVSL!   Our goal for 2019 is to create a fun, supportive environment where swimmers of all ages and abilities improve their swimming technique while embracing the enthusiastic spirit of the Great Wahoo!

On Saturday mornings in 2019, the Wahoos will compete in Division 1 of the Northern Virginia Swim League (“NVSL”). The other teams in Division TBD of the NVSL include Chesterbrook, Highlands, McLean, Overlee, and Tuckahoe.  We will also compete in Developmental Meets, which are open to all Wahoo swimmers, on Monday evenings.

Wahoos Schedule

The Wahoos participate in two separate swim leagues.  Saturday morning swim meets are part of the Northern Virginia Swim League (NVSL).  There are five NVSL meets (A Meets) during the summer swim season.  Participants in the NVSL meets are identified by the coaches based on swimmers recorded event times. 

The Wahoos also participate in Developmental Meets (B Meets).  There are typically five developmental meets during the swim season, held on Monday nights.  Swimmers that meet the eligibility guidelines are strongly encouraged to sign up and swim in as many meets as possible.
