Hello WST Families!

Hope our families who participated in the SNOW Qualifier meet on Saturday had an enjoyable time in the newly renovated Claude Moore Park pool.  Our team plans on 2 long course meets at that facility in May and June.

This week our 12 and under swimmers head to the Virginia Swimming North District Championship meet at Colgen High School, Manasssas, VA.  For some swimmers this is the final meet of the short course season.  Several swimmers are shooting for qualifying times for Age Group Championships.  Meet information including the timeline, psych sheet and warm ups has been posted to the meet page.  Timer sign up tab will be posted soon. 

Our team has created a closed private group on Facebook for our team parents to use for sharing information that is not public facing.  If you would like to be added to the private group please text 7032839121 with your FB name or email address to be invited to the group.
