Social Event Details
At Woodlands, we believe it's just as important to be a great team in the water as well as out. We have a schedule of social events and activities throughout the summer season to provide additional time for our kids (and parents) to bond. If you have any questions regarding the social calendar, please contact our social chairs, Amy and Jen at [email protected] Some of the fun social activities include:
Swimmers from different age groups are paired as “Buddies” for the season. Buddies cheer each other on at meets, give moral support, and make each other cards, or even just hang out at the meets! Buddies usually exchange team-spirit gifts for bigger swimmer meets. This is an optional activity, but a great way to get to know your teammates. A full calendar for buddy details is on the Buddy Program page.
Parent-Coach Information Night and Social
This is an evening event to give the coaches a chance to talk to the parents about goals for the season, and let the parents and coaches mingle.
Age Group Outings
Each age group on the team has a special day or event planned for them and the coaches. Past outings included Pump It Up, Basketball Training, Rock Climbing, drive-in movies and other fun events.
Picture Day - June 14, 2022
Check the calendar for the picture day date. Teenagers will still have practice in the morning, but all other age groups are canceled for the day in order to make time for individual and team photos.
Swimmers should wear their WST swim suit and team shirt. Forms must be filled out ahead of time. You will find order forms in your family folder at the pool the week prior to picture day.
Pictures will be taken on a first come first serve basis and the earlier you arrive, the less waiting there will be. Please try to come at 8:00am, so we can complete all the individual photos prior to the team photo and age group photos.
|Photo Times||Age Group|

Each summer WST families show their appreciation for their coaches by providing lunch after practice. This is done via a Sign Up Genius.
Dance Night (with the Coaches)
This is a themed event and held at the the Woodlands Cabana Club. This is a "drop off" event and a great opportunity for younger kids to get to know the older swimmers and their coaches. Swimmers will dine on pizza, dance to some music, and spend time with their friends. Be sure to RSVP!
This is a great family event usually held the Monday after City Meet. Enjoy a water wonderland of water slides of all abilities, pools and lazy rivers. This is usually a day-long event that always draws a crowd.
Our Lip Sync is another Woodlands tradition. Swimmers, coaches, and parents alike show their lip sync talents in front of the rest of the team poolside.
Coaches Appreciation Dinner / Pep Rally!
Near the end of the season, dinner is brought to the coaches at the pool. The swimmers are encouraged to make cards or crafts to give to the coaches. A collection is taken prior to the lunch to purchase a gift certificate for our coaches to show our appreciation of all their hard work.
Ladies Night/Men's Night
These are separate fundraiser nights scheduled for the moms and the dads to get together and socialize! Hosted at one of our families' homes. Plan on a fun night out! They ladies typically have an evening of shopping and dinner. Men's night is usually a poker tournament! Both promise to be a great night out with great people!
