    The Weddington Swim and Racquet Club WAHOO Swim Team competes in the Greater Charlotte Swim League (GCSL).  

    Time Commitment

    • The summer swim season begins in mid-May with daily afternoon practices
    • Practices switch to the mornings when the school year ends
    • There are 8 opportunities to race in a meet during the season
    • Our first meet is a Time Trial, held at our pool. Its purpose is to give every swimmer an opportunity to record a time for each event
    • We have 6 dual meets on Monday and Thursday evenings in June where we compete with one of the other Division II GCSL teams
    • For those who qualify, there is a final ALL-STAR meet where all seven Division II teams compete.

    Practice Times

    The summer swim season typically begins in mid-May with afternoon practices. Practices switch to the mornings when the school year ends. 


    • Current members in good standing of the Weddington Swim and Racquet Club are eligible to join the WAHOO swim team
    • We do not require try-outs to join the team, but swimmers must be able to swim 25 meters unassisted to compete in a meet
    • A swimmer may only swim for one GCSL team, regardless of Division

    Age Group Assignment
