Woodhaven Swim Team

Yeah Swimming!

If your children enjoy swimming, we would love to have them on the Woodhaven Swim Team. It is a great opportunity for kids (ages 4-18) to learn valuable swimming skills, while being part of a team. We have approximately 100 swimmers on the Woodhaven Swim Team each summer. We swim in the Southern Swim League made up of 12 clubs from the Greater Dayton area. To learn more about the SSA League, see Southern Ohio Swim League website.

This is also the time for families to order Swim Team Spirit Wear and sign up for required volunteer jobs. Wear you swim suit; join the team; bring your checkbook, towels, goggles, etc. and have some fun!

Season Kick-Off Parent Meeting
The date for the parents meeting is Friday, May 24, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at Woodhaven. This is a great chance for parents to ask lots of questions.

A packet of pertinent information about the swim team will be distributed, with forms to complete included. You will also be given the new Woodhaven Swim Team Handbook to help you easily navigate the season.

If you cannot attend, the packet will be available at the pool during regular hours. For questions, concerns or suggestions, you can contact the Swim Team Committee by email at:

Practice Schedule
We will start each group at the time indicated below. When the swimmers arrive, they are to wait on deck where the coach has indicated, until a coach gives them instructions. Handing out of ribbons after meets and team meeting will be done at the beginning of each practice.

Swim Team Fee
The Booster Fee this year will be $50.00 for the first swimmer, $75.00 for the second swimmer, and a $100.00 max cap per family.
Make checks payable to: "Woodhaven Swim Club."

This must be paid by June 7, 2019 along with an accompanied SSA registration form (one for each swimmer) in order to make your child eligible to swim in the first meet. We also ask that you fill out an absentee form for each swimmer and turn it into the coaches by June 4, 2019 as well.

Swim Suits
All swimmers will have the opportunity to be fitted for and purchase suits at our Woodhaven Pool within the first week. Please look for that information in team emails. Practice suits, goggles, caps and other swimming apparel will also be available for purchase. Woodhaven swim caps (which must be worn in meets) will also be available (free to team members) from any swim committee representative and from the pool office.

Swim Banquet
Our Swim Banquet will be at the end of the season, at Woodhaven.

Working Swim Meets / Official's Clinic
Please note that swim team parents are required to work at least 3 meets and/or Finals. Volunteering via Sign-up Genius will be ready by the May 24, 2019 parents meeting. Please sign up as soon as possible or contact any member of the Swim Team Committee if you have questions.

The team also needs more parents interested in being officials at our swim meets. Officials will receive worker credit for both their initial shadowing and the work they do at each meet. There are other perks to being an official as well, see a committee member for details.
