Welcome to the 2021 Swim Team Season!
After a very modified summer 2020 season, we cannot be more excited to welcome back our returning swim families and get to know all of our new families! Willowdale Swim Team is for swimmers of all abilities ages 4-18 (check out our Learn to Swim Program for our youngest swimmers)! In addition to practice and meets, we have many fun social events such as Friday night pasta dinners, swim team party, pancake breakfasts and more.

What should I bring to practice? Swimmers should be ready to get into pool at the start of practice with their bathing suit on, googles and cap (not required by recommended). We encourage you to bring a water bottle, towel and fins (if you have them). Please have sneakers and a sweatshirt for early season practice in case it is too chilly in the get in the water.
Training Squad Information
Training squad is pre-swim team program for our newest swimmers. Training squad is a small group, hands on program held in the shallow end of the pool. Our coaches focus on the introduction of all four strokes as well as breathing technique. Swimmers should be comfortable in the water and be able to put their face fully under the water. Our training squad swimmers will get an opportunity to experience meet swimming in our Wednesday night B meets. Many of our training squad swimmers will move up to swim team by end of the season.
If your swimmer is able to complete 1 lap of freestyle unassisted we recommend registering them for our swim team. If your child is not yet ready for Training Squad, check out our Learn to Swim program.
