The Wizards are not only a top notch competitive swim team, we are a proud city program dedicated to representing West Haven throughout the state and giving back to our community.  In addition, we work hard to make sure our swimmers enjoy the sport and the team they dedicate so much time to.  This page highlights some of the other activities we enjoy throughout the year that help make being a Wizard so great!   

  • These extra events are made possible in part due to the tireless efforts of the Parents Club.  The more parents that are involved, the better off we are so please head over to the Parents' Club Section of the site for info on who to get in touch with and what you can do if you want to help!

Season Kick-Off Ziti Dinner

Annual Holiday Party

Icy Plunge for the Cure

 

 When:  Usually January or February

 Who: While the Plunge itself is a city sponsored event with open registration, participation as a Wizard is limited to all members and parents of the Fall/Winter team

 What: The Icy Plunge for the Cure is a City Sponsored event that is over ten years old.  The Wizards have been participating in the event as a team since 2008.  Participating Wizards raise money and partake in a quick dip into the frigid waters of Long Island Sound.  While this event is not for everyone - all the money raised for the event is used in the fight against breast cancer. 

Memorial Day Parade

 

 

 When:Memorial Day

 Who: All members of the Fall/Winter and Spring teams

 What:  Who doesn't love a parade?  Every year the Wizards roll up their sleeves, put together their customized float and roll down the heart of the city, showing off their team and civic spirit at West Haven's annual Memorial Day Parade!  Afterwards they all meet up for their annual team picnic to kick off the summer.   

Breakout Swim Clinic

 

 

 

 When: 4/10/11

 Who: The clinic was open to all swimmers from across the state.

 What: In April 2011, the Wizards played host to Olympic Gold Medalists Josh Davis and Ian Crocker, who spent the day lending their knowledge to over 80 swimmers from West Haven and other Yankee League Teams.  Not only did everyone learn a ton from the two Olympic champions, but their kindness and enthusiasm were more than anyone could have hoped for.   

 

 

   Maybe some day we will see them again, in the meantime, in case you missed the front page article in the New Haven Register, take a look at the entire day in pictures by going to our Photo Gallery.
