We are excited to welcome back Joe Schaefer as our head coach & Alex Burns an assistant head coach. Joe is a 2020 Woodson High School graduate. Joe currently attends West Virginia University where he competes on the swim team and is majoring in Education. Alex Attends University of Arizona. She too is an Education Major.
2023 & 2024 Meet Dates are on the Tab - 2023 Schedule.
Mark your calendar! The 2023 & 2024 calendars are available. Note the new date in June for the Relay Carnival. There is now a 2 week gap between relay carnival and All Star Relays. The opponents and the Monday B meet schedule will be finalized in March.
Registration for the 2023 season begin May 6th.
If you have registered for the Swim Team on Swimtopia most of your information for registration will pre-fill after you login. If you are on a cell phone, your info should also load, as long as you login first. Please update your information if needed. If you cannot remember your password from last year, please use the 'forgot password' link to make your registration process faster.
If you are a new swim team member an account will be created for you during registration. You will want to have your emergency contact and medical contact info readily available as well as a calendar nearby so you can sign up for volunteer slots as well.
A confirmation e-mail will be sent when your registration is complete.
PLEASE check the FAQ's under the Parent Information/ Resources tab if you have questions.
I encourage you to download SwimTopia’s free mobile app.
Features of the free mobile app include:
- Access to Meet and Job Signup pages from the app
- Your athlete's Best Times and Time History
- Calendar view of upcoming meets and events
- Meet Overview for your family (including swim events and volunteer jobs)
- Public Meet Search/Guest Mode (other family/friends can follow along without having an account)
- Post-meet Results for your family’s athletes
You’ll see prompts to upgrade to a free trial of the Pro version, but our team will NOT be using these features so there is no need to upgrade.
I remember parents trying to do something through the app last year and it did not work. I believe you still have to go to the website for some things.
Another Benefit is we’ll be able to communicate with you through push notifications—which is helpful when we need to get information out quickly, such as rain delays or weather alerts.
I might be experimenting with sending texts/emails through Swimtopia in addition to Remind.
To receive push alerts on your phone:
2.Log in with your SwimTopia login (you must have an activated login on the team site to log into your account on the app)
3.Be sure to check your app’s notification settings -- ensure that it’s set to pop up on your screen (Android users: you may need to receive your first notification before you can edit this setting)
» Note: if you don’t download the app, you’ll still receive the alerts via email.

Please still visit the main Swimtopia website to see daily posts on our Home and News pages which cannot be found when using the App.
If you have questions about the swim team, you may contact the team Representative:
