QUESTIONS should be directed to the following:

  • Unable to login? Not receiving Wahoos emails?  Are you sure you are using the correct email address?DOUBLE CHECK YOUR CITY REGISTRATION; 9 times out 10, people forgot or don't know which email address was used to register with the city. We create your teamwahoos.org account with the email address that you or your children's other guardian provided in the city registration. Find what that email address was. Login with that email address and you can change it later. It takes a few days after you registered with the City for your registration data to come to us. Once we have the registration data, we will create and activate your account and notify you via that email address.

REGISTRATION: We are a summer program facilitated by the City of Alexandria's Youth Sports Office. This team Website is run by volunteers and we do not process registrations. Instead, click HERE to register on the City of Alexandria's Webtrac. You will be required to login with your household account. There may be multiple time slots listed. You may pick any of them because you will be following the MORNING and AFTERNOOON practice schedules listed in our INFO CENTER instead. If you have any issue with WebTrac, please contact the City staff, not the Chinquapin Wahoos Booster volunteers. Chinquapin Wahoos Swim Team "Activity Number" is 134350.

FEES: There are 2 payments. First, as part of registration on the City's Webtrac, you pay the program fee, which covers the practice facility and coaching, to the City of Alexandria. Separately, you will pay a team fee to the Chinquapin Wahoos Boosters. The team fee is assessed per family and it is needed to pay for the Colonial Swim League and other operational/material costs not covered by the City. The fee is $40 for one swimmer or $80 for two or more swimmers in a family.  The fees must be paid before your child enters the water!  Please mail the team fee to the address given on the receipt you received from the City upon signing up for the team.

PAYMENT ASSISTANCEThe Chinquapin Wahoos Boosters, a volunteer organization that runs the swim team, may be able to provide payment assistance on a case-by-case basis.  Reach out to the "General Questions" point of contact.
