The following practice schedule is tentative and may adjust throughout the season. Please use the calendar that is located on the left sidebar for the most up-to-date schedule of practice times and locations. The purpose of releasing this schedule now is to give parents an idea of potential practice times.
The Wilson Age Group Swimming will be practicing in the Snyder Natatorium that features 10 lanes and two 1 meter diving boards. The pool is located on the Wilson School District’s High School Campus at 2601 Grandview Blvd., West Lawn, PA 19609. The natatorium is clearly marked outside on the main pool entrance in the Lower House Building.
The below times are SUBJECT TO CHANGE based on the high school practice and meet schedule. We have increased the opportunities for our youth aquatic athletes to practice. It is a requirement to participate in two practices per week in order to compete in a league meet. Athletes must pass all swimming requirements to participate on the WAGS Swimming & Diving Team.
The purpose of releasing the below information is to give you a general idea of when age groups will be practicing.
