The West Haven Wizards Spring Swim Team is an 8 week program designed for inexperienced and experienced swimmers alike. The team is run in a clinic like atmosphere and will serve as an introduction to competitive swimming for beginners, teaching all four strokes, turns and starts. For experienced swimmers the program will focus on improving technique and working the technical aspects of all strokes at a slower pace than our fall season. As always, the team makes sure that all swimmers also have fun and learn the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, hard work and fair competition. We hope you enjoy your time with the Wizards and hope you consider signing back up with us for our competition season in the fall!

While snow shouldn’t be an issue for the spring session (probably), keep your eyes peeled for thunder and lightning. Our policy is to clear the water once that starts and keep the pool cleared until 20 minutes after it stops.

The Wizards rely on fundraising to obtain funds needed to support our swimmers and pay for events, equipment, awards, and gifts. All money raised goes back to the team in these ways.
