Swim Team

The Westwood Whirlwinds swim team participates in weekly meets with other teams in the Dominion Country Club League, providing lots of chances for everyone to swim, race, improve times and meet new friends. Involvement with the team is FUN for both the kids and the parents! Kids enhance their ability to swim and perhaps more importantly, learn about teamwork, striving for a goal, and being a good friend. Parents meet new people at the Club and support a healthy alternative to “watching TV all summer!” We participate in great social activities, including Friday Spirit Events, Raft Nights, and the ever popular trip to Kings Dominion. Daily practice is not mandatory, nor is the weekly swim meet. Kids progress at their own pace and most find they start to push themselves to beat their times. The WCC swim team is about having fun in the water and an AWESOME summer experience.
