Wahoos 2018 Summer Season

May 1, 2018 - July 27, 2018
June 11, 2018

Description

 

The Wahoos are our 2018 summer league swim team based out of Upper St. Clair. Our mission is to promote competitive swimming in our community by providing an opportunity for kids to learn life-long skills, while participating in an exciting team sport. Our team of coaches will work hard to develop stroke technique and proficiency and to encourage good sportsmanship in a fun, team-oriented environment.

The program will run from June 11 through July 27.

 

REQUIREMENTS

Swimmers must be ages 4 through 14 as of June 1, 2018.

Swimmers MUST be able to independently swim 25 yards (one length of the pool) in freestyle for ages 10 and under and 50 yards in freestyle for ages 11 and over.  They must be able to do this without stopping to hold onto or pull on the lane rope.  If you are not sure whether or not your swimmer meets this requirement, please contact Coach Tawnya (coachtawnya@peaqpgh.org) to schedule an evaluation.

Following the mandatory parent meeting, Jennifer from B and R pools will be available for anyone who needs or wants to purchase a team suit (optional), goggles, swim fins, etc.

** If your swimmer participated on our Developmental team during the 2017;2018 season, and already paid the registration fee, the $30 seasonal USA Swimming membership fee will be waived.

Fees for current PEAQ club members (AG1 through Junior) will be $50.

 

VOLUNTEER INFO

The Wahoo summer swim team relies upon parents to volunteer their time and energies to make the program successful.  All parents are needed to volunteer. Swim meets and team supervision are run by parents, coaches, and team managers. Most of the positions are very easy to perform and require minimal training.  A few positions require one training session.
