Swim Groups

Swim Team Groups

The Wexford Whales offer training and practice for swimmers of various ages and abilities. It is the goal of the Whales to offer training for our athletes that challenges and develops each to the best of their abilities. 



The Whale group are for swimmers with legal technique in all four strokes.  This group begins daily after school practice the Tuesday after Memorial Day.  Once school ends, practice for this group moves to the mornings.  The focus of this group is development of technique for speed and endurance. Our Whales compete in “A” meets which occur on Saturday mornings.  These meets are competitive with our fastest swimmers swimming their best strokes.  Whales 12 and under can also swim in “B” meets. This is an opportunity for swimmers to develop and compete in other strokes that they may not be as comfortable doing in an "A" meet competitive setting.

Junior Whales

Junior Whales are developing swimmers who can complete 25m of freestyle and backstroke but may not know legal breaststroke or butterfly.  This group begins practice from 11-11:45am after school ends.  The focus is on technique to develop legal strokes, starts, and finishes.  All Junior Whales are welcome to compete in “B” meets during the summer swim season.  These meets are for 12 and under kids who prefer competing in a less competitive atmosphere. There are no disqualifications and the meets are informal and relaxed.  These meets are typically on Wednesday evenings for 2-2.5 hours.  Junior Whales may also have the opportunity to swim in “A” meets.  Coach Reggie will give further directions on those opportunities.
