History
The idea for Woodhaven Swim Club was conceived in 1957 by Larry Prine, Jim Parks, Henry Brining and Glen Noffsinger. These four men were soon joined by many friends and neighbors who were excited about the idea of a neighborhood pool. The first meeting was held in the Beavercreek Grade School Auditorium on May 26, 1958 and resulted in the organization of what was then known as Woodhaven Sun and Fun Club, a subsidiary of Chapel Development Corporation.

Woodhaven Swim Club, Inc. is a member of the Greater Dayton Swimming Association (GDSA) and fields both swimming and diving teams in league competition each year. We had championship teams in 1962, 1963, and 1964; placed second in swimming competition in 1961, 1977, 1978, and 1979. In 1979 our diving team placed first in the league. In 1980, 1981, 1982, and 1983 we were swimming and diving champions. In 1984 we placed first in diving and second in swimming. In 1985, Woodhaven again won the swimming and diving championship.
In 1986 Woodhaven was the overall
league champion while placing first in
diving and second in swimming.
Woodhaven divers won the diving
championship in 1987 and the swimmers
placed second in the GDSA Finals. In
1988, Woodhaven swimmers and divers
won the GDSA Championship. In 1990,
Woodhaven divers placed first,
swimmers placed third, for a 2nd place
finish overall. In 1991 and 1992,
Woodhaven placed first in the GDSA Championship. After 1992, there was no diving team. In 1993, 1994, 2016 and 2017, Woodhaven placed 2nd. In 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2015 Woodhaven placed 1st.

The physical plant was constructed on a 5 1/2 acre site of land and provides 4,700 square feet of swimming area, enough to accommodate 350 families. The pool was one of the first to use the now common Z shape. In the years since the initial construction many improvements have been made.
