Choose your practice day!

Please follow the link below to indicate your swimmer's name (one entry per swimmer), and which weekday you are planning to come for the season.  These practices occur at the Valley Catholic Pool which is just to the east of the Elementary School, behind the tennis courts. (see the previous blog post for exact location)

Everyone is encouraged to come on Sunday evening practices at the Beaverton Swim Center (12850 SW 3rd St., Beaverton) from 6:00-7:00pm.

I suggest that all swimmers swim on one weekday and on Sunday evenings.  
If this does not work for your family, please contact Coach Kevin for options.

Swim Assessment TODAY / Valley Catholic Pool location

The swim assessment is still scheduled for today at 5:00pm at the Valley Catholic pool.  The pool is located to the east of the elementary school on their campus.  Please refer to the map and text below.

Since it can be hard to find where the pool is on the Valley Catholic campus, I have included this photo from Google Maps.  The pool is the red arrow.  You will want to park somewhere close to the tennis courts and walk to the pool.  If you are using a GPS, I typically just enter "Valley Catholic High School", and mine gets me there just fine.

Parent Meeting & other important items

This season will kick off with a Parent Meeting on Wed. Oct. 11 from 7-8PM in the WHCS Auditorium.  Please plan to come to hear all of the newest information for this year.  There will be several changes, so I hope one parent from each interested family can attend.  If you need to bring children, that is completely acceptable, but they should plan to sit with you.

Next, this season's practices will start on Tues. Oct. 24 starting at 5PM at the Valley Catholic pool in Beaverton.  Our practices this year will be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays (choose one) from 5-6 for Polliwogs (K-3rd) and 5-6:30 for Cubs and Cadets (4th-8th).

If you are a new swimmer to WHCS, we will be having a skills check at the Valley Catholic pool on either 10/16 or 10/23 (I am waiting on confirmation from VC).  It will begin around 5:00, and should take less than 30 minutes.  We need to make sure that all swimmers can comfortably swim 25 yards.  They do not need to know the four competitive strokes, rather just be safe in one of them.

Here is our updated swim meet schedule for this year

Lastly, I am still in great need of more coaches.  If you can keep children safe in the water and you can be a positive role model, you are fit to coach for our team.  We will provide on the job training.  I ask that you commit to one day a week, Sunday practices (once they begin around Thanksgiving) and meets.  If you would like to volunteer to coach or ask more questions, please email Coach Kevin at swimteam@whcs.org.

If you are ready to register, click here.  When signing up there will be a question that asks if you are an exception.  If you attend WHCS click NO, then proceed to register (top right corner).  If you do not attend WHCS click YES, then follow the prompts.
