We especially need swimmers in the “6 & Under” age group.   You can fill out the registration forms ahead and bring them with you by visiting our website: http://winchesterhurricanes.com/Meets. aspx . You can also get information and registration forms at the Winchester Country Easter Event on March 24th at the Winchester Country Clubhouse. The cost is $95 each for the first 2 swimmers, $50 for the 3rd swimmer, and $40 for the 4th swimmer. A refundable volunteer deposit check is required at registration. Fees include a trophy, a team t-shirt, and the team party. Winchester Swim Team, Inc. serves over 200 neighborhood kids each year and is affiliated with the Northwest Aquatic League “NWAL”.
