The Wahoo Swim Team started 18 years ago. It consists of a Head Coach and five Assistant Coaches that are all certified. We have approximately sixty-five swimmers at all different levels. We practice two days a week during our season June to October.
Special Olympics supplies the equipment, flippers, kickboards, pull buoys and ankle bands, plus the bathing suits and caps for competition. This is all supplied to the athletes at no cost to them or their families, so we hope you will support our TEAM with a donation.
The swimmers are divided up into several groups. The 25M swimmers learn the freestyle and backstroke, plus some learn other stokes. Our 50M swimmers practice all four strokes, freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke. We try to work on the proper strokes because at competitions they go by FINA rules. Before they get into the pool they loosen up by doing exercise and then swim for two hours.
Three of our swimmers will be going to USA Games in 2022 for Open Water Swim, one will be competing in the 25M swim; one will be participating in a Triathalon and there is one who will be competing in Stand Up Paddle. Some of our swimmers also participate in the Ocean Swim in Pompano and Miami with unified partners. Some of our athletes also swim on a regular USA Team or a Masters Team. As you can see they all love the water and we are very proud of them.
Would you be so kind as to help our team by making a donation ? Thank you
