 Welcome to the Winchester Swim Team Online Registration.  Thank you for your interest in our team!!  WST is a USA Swimming year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities.

WST Mission: The mission of the Winchester Swim Team is to provide a diverse program which supports and encourages swimmers of all levels, and which promotes a sense of sportsmanship, healthy competition, and team spirit.

WST Vision: The Winchester Swim Team seeks to always operate in an atmosphere where all swimmers feel welcomed, encouraged, and supported in achieving their goals. In addition, the WST seeks to develop a team spirit among family members, as well as swimmers, through continuing to educate them in the sport of swimming and always encouraging families to volunteer in support of their swimmers, their team, and their sport.

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 16, 2021 to July 31, 2022.  All swimmers will register via our online registration tool.  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 an online payment plus much more.
