 Welcome to the Winchester Swim Team Online Registration for 2018 to 2019.  Thank you for your interest in our team!!  WST is a USA year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide everyone an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at their level of ability, from novice to national competitor.  We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team.

This online registration tool will help process the necessary paperwork needed to enroll your swimmer in our year round program August 13, 2018 to July 27, 2019.  All swimmers will register via our online registration platform.  This system gives each family access to your own private account that will enable you to easily register for swim meets, volunteer and sign-up for jobs, track your children's swim times, maintain your own contact information, make a payment and much more.
