Swim Team General Information:

  • All swimmers must be members of the Waugh Chapel Swim Club (no sports memberships).
  • No swimmer may swim that is not registered with the swim team.  They must be registered with the AAU (part of team registration), to swim.
  • 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.
  • There is no minimum age requirement.  Older children qualify to swim based on comfort level in the pool (coaches make the final decision).  Some children may be better off in lessons, for a year, vs. swim team.
  • Age of swimmer, for the season, is the child’s age on May 30th, 2018.

Swim Team 2017 Season

After several back-to-back championship seasons, the WCSC Seadogs moved up to Division 1 for the 2017 season and went 1-4 in dual meets. The Seadogs had a strong finish to the 2017 season, beating Forest Hill at its last home meet of the summer.

A total of 42 swimmers qualified for The CMSL Straehle Invitational Meet where Waugh Chapel placed third overall–that includes EVERY team in the CMSL! 

For a list of swimmers that placed Top 10 in their events at Straehles, click here. This team just keeps getting better and stronger – if you want to be on a winning team, join the 2018 WCSC Swim Team this summer. Registration for the 2018 season will take place on May 5, 9:00 am – noon. We hope to see your lil’ Seadogs there!

WCSC Sea Dogs Swim Team 2013


Note to the team from Coach Jonathan Illuzzi (7/26/17):

I am absolutely floored by how well our swimmers performed Monday at the Novice meet and today at the Straehle invitational. If you know me, you know I’m never short for words, but I really don’t know what to say; I’m sure I’ll find the words at our end-of-the-year party. Until then, just take a look at all the attached docs and I’m sure you can play your own version of “Coach Jonathan mad libs” 🙂

For those that still question whether we belong in Div I, I invite you to take a look at the team scoring from today’s meet. We finished 3rd. Third! Out of 46 teams! Speechless.

Special congratulations go to 8U Paige Addleman who tied former coach Laura Brown’s 25-free record (2003) with her first-place time of 16.75. Perhaps she’ll break it this Saturday! 

Congratulations, as well, to Juliette Whittaker for lowering the team record she already set this year with a blistering time of 37.17.  Other record-setters this year are Geoffrey Cradock in the 50 free (30.90) and the 100 IM (1:20.90), both from 1986.

I can’t wait until Divisionals. All I can say is the weight of the awards we’ve racked up at Novice and Straehle is quite heavy 🙂

Way to go Seadogs!
