Welcome to the 2023 Wahoos Season

About the West Laurel Wahoos Swim Team

The West Laurel Swim Team is an age-group competitive summer swim team that participates in the Prince-Mont Swim League (PMSL). Our team focus is on developing younger swimmers while supporting the competitive goals of the more experienced team members. We emphasize good sportsmanship, teamwork, building confidence, and having FUN!

  • Hour long practices are held weekdays throughout the season (June and July)
  • Swimmers have opportunities to compete in PMSL meets, the Laurel Invitational Swim Meet and West Arundel Aqua Ducks Mini-Meet (swimmers 10 & under).
  • We have many social events including Friday potlucks, ice cream social, breakfasts, and our closing awards picnic/pool-party.
  • All WLSC members, ages 5-18 years, are invited to join the team. New swimmers must be able to swim a distance of 25 meters and tread water for 30 seconds in the deep end of the pool. Tests will be conducted by our coaches with no limit to the number of attempts.

Practices and Meets

For the 2023 season, practices will be held 5:00 PM-6:00 PM and 6:00 PM-7:00 PM Monday-Friday. Swimmers will be able to choose a practice time during registration. Meets will take place Saturday mornings, beginning with Time Trials on June 10, 2023.


The Wahoos depend on family volunteers to run successful meets. There are a variety of roles available. Parents may volunteer for team leadership positions and swim meet support positions, the latter of which are mandatory. If you’re new to swimming, volunteering as a timer is a great place to start. A description of the various volunteer positions available can be found in the WLST Handbook.
