Registration for the 2022/2023 season is OPEN!

The WHAT Mission is to develop and foster life values such as responsibility, teamwork, discipline, determination, patience, work ethic, confidence, and pride to student-athletes through the sport of swimming and, in doing so, provide an avenue of excellence for swimmers of all ability levels. 

We aim to provide excellence in coaching, training and team unity in an environment where every swimmer is inspired to achieve his/her potential and compete at the highest level.  We help achieve success for our athletes by providing a well-structured organization administered by professional experienced staff and parent volunteers who support our team values and goals. 

WHAT programs offers a unique level of flexibility for those athletes involved with multiple sports so that they are able to participate and succeed in all of their endeavors.  Ask how!


Scholarship/Grant Opportunities

It is WHAT's mission to make sure that every child has an opportunity to swim regardless of their financial situation.  WHAT has secured and offers scholarship grants for those that qualify but funds are limited.  The process is confidential and uncomplicated.  

* Please contact [email protected] if you are experiencing hardship and/or wish to discuss confidentially concerns you may have about meeting payments. We want to work with all of our families as much as possible and try to keep everyone in the water.
