Waitlist:

Are you interested in joining the West Coast Winter Club?

Are you looking to register but do not know what group you/your swimmer may fit into?

Are you hoping to register for this season but there are no spots left in your preferred group?

If you have answered yes to any of the above, then we are happy to talk you through the process of getting you/your swimmer placed in one of our groups or on our waitlist.

Please Contact: marissaschweitzer@gmail.com for more information and/or to begin your registration process.


Notes:

This club is in its opening year/s and thus is dealing with limited pool space, limited coaching capacity, and limited funds.

Each group functions with 2 lanes per practice hour and thus each group is limited to 8 swimmers per group.

If groups are at capacity and there are swimmers that still wish to be placed in the program then those swimmers are waitlisted and will be informed when a spot becomes available.

By Fall of 2023, the club is hoping to add the two groups outlined above (Competitive B and Pre-Competitive), and in following years there is a hope to rent further pool space, and hire more coaching staff thus enhancing the club's ability to take more than 24 swimmers in a season, and potentially add more groups of various skill levels/abilities.
