The Board has updated our By-Laws and Rules and Regulations which can be found on our website. As Bondholders, the Board strongly encourages you to read these documents re/familiarize yourselves with our policies and together, we can continue to keep our Club a safe place to enjoy.

SWIM TEAM

Wedgewood Swim Team, currently in the A Division for over 10 years, is a competitive program geared towards developing novice swimmers and challenging our more experienced swimmers. The Ducks, led by Head Coach Jim Villa and his coaching staff, return for another season as we prepare to compete against Greenfields, Pomona, Deerbrook, Willowdale and Wenonah! Practices are 5 days a week and swim meets are on Saturdays. Members of the team are expected to be available for Saturday meets if they are part of the line up.

DIVE TEAM

Hello Dive Ducks! I am pleased to announce that our 2022 Dive Season sign up is OPEN for registration!

A few things to get started: 1. Head Coach John is back again with us this year and is very excited to announce Asst. Head Coach Kate Hoover! Assistant coaches TBA

2. Spring Warm-up & Regular season dates are listed below and on the Wedgewood Site. Spring warm ups are a great way to introduce children to the fun experience of the dive team, and who doesn't like early access to the diving well!

Register asap on our website (using Scheduling ->Camp/Classes) to register for Spring warm ups and Regular season. We recommend signing up for both. Who doesn't like to get on the diving boards early!!

3. Every dive team member MUST purchase the SJDA Mandatory AAU insurance, even if your child is not planning on competing in meets. See instructions on the website. Please email a pdf of your child/childrens AAU number & payment once complete to wedgewoodive@gmail.com
