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

    Time Commitment

    • The summer swim season begins in mid-May with 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 I GCSL teams
    • Our dual meet season ends on June 28th with a Wahoo Awards Banquet
    • For those who qualify, there is a final ALL-STAR meet  where all seven Division I teams compete. This season the All-Star meet is scheduled for July 8, 2018.
