About Wedgwood Swim Team

 

The Wedgwood Swim Team is a member of the Greater Seattle Summer Swim League.  Swimmers must be members of Wedgwood Pool to be eligible for the team.  Fees for 2016 are $130 per swimmer .

Our emphasis is on learning and acquiring skills for competitive swimming in an atmosphere of team spirit and fun. Practices provide instruction in stroke, speed, racing skills, and teamwork.  This is a wonderful opportunity to learn competitive swimming in a relaxed environment and to become friends with kids of all ages.  Team members are encouraged to participate in all team activities, workouts and swim meets, and to support their fellow swimmers.  

Each swimmer is important to the team regardless of swimming ability.  Many swimmers have found a passion for swimming in their years as a summer swimmer.  If your swimmer isn't sure if swim team will be a good fit, give it a try!  Practices begin the third week of May and the season is completed by the first week in August.  

Parents have the opportunity to meet more Wedgwood Pool members and to become actively involved in the operation of the swim team as volunteers.  Parent help is vital to run meets and support other team events and each family is asked to volunteer a minimum of 12 hours per season.
