Swimming and Diving Requirements
We welcome everyone to the swimming and diving team! You do not have to have formal swimming and diving experience to join and participate. Please see below for district requirements, swim and dive recommendations, and equipment needed before joining.
We welcome everyone to the swimming and diving team! You do not have to have any swimming experience to join the WHS swimming and diving team so please do not let that scare you away. We will help support you in learning the different strokes and helping you develop into being a competitive swimmer. Swimming is a great way to get into or stay in shape for winter and spring sports that you might participate in as well as be a lifelong sport.
When you arrive for the first day of practice you need a swimsuit (one piece for the girls and jammers or speedo encouraged for the boys), cap, and goggles as well as appropriate workout attire (gym shorts, shirt, capris, tennis shoes) for dryland practices. If you do not have a swimsuit, cap, and googles, I recommend swimoutlet.com to order reasonably priced items, good returns, and quick shipping. We will order official team suits and you will receive a team cap after the season starts.
It is encouraged that you contact Coach Tanner to get more information about diving for WHS. We welcome all swimmers and divers but there may be a trial period for participating on the diving team. This is for athlete safety and to allow safe skills development on the board. You will need a swimsuit and towel for diving practices.
