Swim Team Suits & Wedgwood Gear
It’s that time again! Time to get excited about all of the fantastic gear available to the entire pool membership. And time for all swim team kids to gear up in their fabulous Wedgwood swim suits.
Team swim suits will be available to try on at the pool during practices on Tuesday, 5/30. Wedgwood gear will also be available to try on: t-shirts, sweat shirts & pants, polo shirts, caps, deck jackets, etc.
* Please note: If your child is unable to attend the fitting on 5/30, you can take them to Sylvia’s Swimwear and they will help you fit your child. Please tell them that your child is on the Wedgwood swim team. Friday, June 2nd is the last day to place an online order.
Address: 20030 Ballinger Way NE, Shoreline, WA 98155
Phone: (206) 985-7946
Thank you to Kristin Hill for being our gear coordinator once again!
Swim Suit Swap- No Logo Change this year
Bring your too small Wedgwood Team Suits to the swap table. There will be folks needing those out grown suits and maybe your kids will fit into someone else’s hand me down.
Wondering what volunteering as a timer involves? Find out during Swim Suit Fitting night. Lead time Jeff Haven will be there with stop watches to demo and train. It’s actually kind of easy, fun and you get snacks!
Timers get to know most of the swimmers by name. Get the best seat in the house for those finishes. Get splashed by cool water on those hot days by start dives and flip turns. Have fun and make new friends.
The Wedgwood Swim Team Committee

Ready or not it’s finally time to kick the 2016 season off! We would like to welcome you to, or welcome you back to this little urban slice of paradise.
The WW Pool Board would like to extend a special greeting to everyone joining the club this year. Wedgwood is a community, and our goal is to keep everyone safe and keep the pool fun. In order to keep our community connected, Wedgwood needs member involvement. We need members to participate in work parties, volunteer for the Board, help with the swim team, keep the pool clean, and keep a positive attitude. Volunteering is also an opportunity to meet new people. This community has given me some great friends over the last 30 years. I’m looking forward to getting to know you, too.
Let’s make the 2016 Swim Season another wonderful summer at Wedgwood! We want everyone’s experience at Wedgwood to be positive and rewarding. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding Wedgwood, please feel free to contact me or any other Board member. All Board members (and their phone numbers) are located in the pool directory.
2015-2016 Board President
