2021 Season Updates:
**2021 Season Update - Registration is FULL** Details below:
Registration for the 2021 Sharks is full at this time. If you would like your child to be added to the waiting list, please e-mail us at [email protected]
This season, while you will still register through Team Unify (wellingtonsharks.org), you will not pay through Team Unify. In an effort to help us all pinch pennies, we have moved to payment via Venmo, Cash, or Check. This lowers the cost per swimmer from $186 to $175.
Swim practices will begin on Tuesday, May 25th. The schedule will be posted on our website around the first week of May. If you are new to the Sharks, and aged 8 or below, you will need to complete a swim check in order to be on the team. We will send out a Sign Up Genius the first week of May so families can schedule swim checks. Swim checks are currently scheduled for Saturday, May 8th, and Saturday, May 15th between 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Swim North Texas has not released a meet schedule yet, as most HOAs, ours included, are still wrestling with the details of how to proceed this summer. As it stands now, our team has been approved for two inter-squad meets on Monday, June 14th and Monday, June 28th, from 7 a.m. – 12 p.m. There is also a very strong possibility that we will travel to Heritage to race their team; however, we have no details on that at this time. A Championship meet is not official, but highly likely, and is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, July 13th. Your patience with the details of the season is very much appreciated.

If your child is old enough to be left alone while at practice, he/she MUST have a way to contact you in case of emergency. This means either a family friend is at the pool and is aware that you are not present, your child has a cell phone, or at a minimum knows your cell phone number should you need to be contacted.
