The Westminster Swim and Dive team wants to encourage and assist any of our families who are interested in swim lessons or participating on a summer swim or dive team.  Here is how we would like to help:

1)      If you have already signed up, or know you are signing up, for either summer swim team, dive team, or for swim lessons, we would like to know about it.  Westminster Swim and Dive is giving a Free Westminster swim cap to every student who lets us know that they are joining a summer swim team or taking swim lessons!  Please see Mrs. White at the Lower School, or Mrs. Messer at the Upper School, to give your name and team and receive your swim cap.

2)     If you are interested in summer swim team, dive team, or lessons, but need more information, please contact Joe Raines at  He will be happy to give you information on teams or lessons in our area.

Please feel free to also contact Mr. Raines if you have any other questions about summer swim opportunities, Westminster Swim and Dive team, or swimming and diving in general.
