The West Chicago Sharks are celebrating 60 years as a competitive swim team for swimmers at all levels. As the team ages, so does our current scoreboard. The team is in need of a new fully digital electronic scoreboard.

The scoreboard will not only freshen the pool wall, but also allow our team to showcase times, swimmers’ names, graphics and video.   The desired scoreboard is a Colorado LED full color video display. This will keep the Sharks, as well as the Wilddogs (West Chicago/Batavia High School Swim Team) top notch and competitive with other swim teams and help not only the swimmers, but all spectators, volunteers and officials have a better visual on place, time and final results!


The Sharks continue to be lead by Head Coach Dan Johnson. Coach DJ is the longest tenured coach in Illinois Swimming.  Coach DJ has influenced thousands of children in the community during his career.  Please join us in recognizing his contributions and the positive influence of the West Chicago Sharks on our community by contributing to our $60K for 60 years scoreboard initiative. Any amount you donate is greatly appreciated and helps the team reach its goal!
