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!

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.
