TRUST - HONESTY - RESPECT

2022 Summer Training Groups

 

Our Spring program concludes Friday May 27th and Tuesday May 31st sees the launch of our Summer season. Year round swimming is a cornerstone of Wahoos philosophy and we encourage all our members to keep training at Wahoos for this period.

For many of our swimmers Summer Club Swimming offers a fantastic experience, plus loads of competitive opportunities and is a key reason swimming in our community is so strong. We look forward to supporting our swimmers and their Summer Teams but also recognize that training year round at Wahoos offers invaluable opportunities to improve and make sure next season is always better than the previous!!!

We are always delighted to be able to offer our entire membership a training opportunity to stay in the water and put in the time to make improvements technically and conditioning wise which will stand to us when we return to our regular programming in September.

Please reach out to your Lead Coach with any queries about signing up!

Our Summer competition season focuses on Long Course racing and Wahoos is fully invested in supporting USA Swimming’s development model which uses LC meets as a key metric in evaluating a club’s performance at the national level. We have several in season meets, starting with the GPAC meet and then our own Summer Solstice to help us prepare for the Mid Atlantic Championship series in July. Our philosophy is that swimmers earn the right to compete at the highest level of available competition and our National Team will be represented at the National level at various meets towards the end of July and into August. We take this philosophy all the way through our program and any of our Age Group athletes who earn the right to race at the next level up in the national structure we are here to support them in their goals!!!
