The township has approved our proposal for a swim clinic this summer. The clinic will run June 22nd until July 31st.
The WST clinic’s intended purpose is to work on stroke development, conditioning for swimmers of all abilities, and help teach fundamentals of competitive swimming (legal strokes, starts, turns, etc.). Our goal is to help swimmers improve stroke technique, teach drills that will enable the continued refinement, and rebuild endurance after this extended time out of the pool.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to participate in the clinic, swimmers should either have minimum 1 season worth of previous experience OR are comfortable in the water without the assistance of an adult in the water with them and can complete a minimum 1 lap of the pool on their own. Swimmers are not required to legally swim all strokes, as we will work to develop their skills throughout the clinic.
In order to adhere to state and local guidelines, we will be following this schedule:
$110* per swimmer (ages 11-18)
Session 1: 7:00-8:00
Session 2: 8:15-9:15
Session 3: 9:30-10:30
Session 4: 7:30-8:30
Session 5: 8:45-9:30
Session 6: 9:45-10:30
*Families with 3 or more swimmers will receive a $10 discount for each swimmer after the first 2 full price swimmers.
IMPORTANT: To maintain state and local guidelines, your child will not be permitted to switch practice sessions once they are assigned to a session. Participants are not able to choose their session, it will be assigned by the coaching staff once registration is complete. It will follow typical swim season scheduling (older swimmers earlier etc.). Each session will have a maximum enrollment of 16-22 swimmers. There is a 15 minute gap between sessions to allow for staggered pick up/drop off of swimmers and to minimize contact between groups including a 30 minute gap between the final session and and the club opening to the public. Parents will drop their swimmer off at the gate to keep with state and local guidelines. The same coaches will be assigned to each of the groups (M-W-F or T-TH) to limit exposure to different swimmers over the course of the clinic. Locker rooms will not be available for changing. Please come dressed and ready to swim in your suits and have plenty of towels ready to go home in your wet swim suits. Restrooms will be available for emergency use only, please plan accordingly.
REGISTRATION DETAILS / DEADLINES:
REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE PROMPTLY at 8am on Wednesday, June 17th or earlier if all spots are full & waitlist fills. This will give coaches time to assign sessions and evaluate openings for potential waitlisted participants.

WAITLIST: Due to limitations on the amount of swimmers we can have per session, some of you may be placed on a waitlist. Once we see final registrations numbers we are hoping to adjust sessions to accommodate those placed on waitlists, but we can not guarantee this.
**For those already registered (signed up for swim team in March or April), you will receive separate email regarding price adjustments, next week and you DO NOT need to sign up for the clinic you are automatically transferred to clinic registration**
WST Communication: We will be using the REMIND app again this season. Directions for signing up will be in your confirmation email from ACTIVE once you have registered. We will also post updates and other important information on our website as we are able.
WST will not be participating in LBSL this year. Please see prior web post dated 6/9/2020 for more details.
WST is hopeful that this will be a rewarding and fun experience for our swimmers. We appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time!!
