  • Any swimmers, eight and under, must be able to swim half a lap of the pool, unassisted, to qualify to swim.
  • All new swimmers must attend the audition to assess their swimming skills and determine practice group.

Note to the team from Coach Jonathan Illuzzi (7/25/187):

WCSC Sea Dogs Swim Team 2013

Our 11-12 boys relay (Nick Damico, Drew Brown, Jake Polucha, and Geoffrey Cradock) broke our team record that stood since 1981. The old record was a 2:03.00; these boys lowered it to 2:02.51. It’s crazy to think that I wasn’t even born yet (1982) when this record was set. To go 36 years of my life just to get to watch a 37-year-old record get broken is something I am entirely humbled by. 

Amanda Cradock lowered her previously established records in the 100 free and 50 back. And to think she still has 3 more years to continue to do so! 

Our team placed 6th in total points out 45 teams. Our women were 13th. Our men were 4th. Enough said. 

From the Novice meet to the Straehle meet, we’ve been swimming really, really well.


Way to go Seadogs!
