ABOUT POTOMAC WOODS DEMONS SWIM TEAM

The Potomac Woods Demons Swim Team has been a member of the Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL) for more than 50 years!

Summer swim season begins at the end of May and ends mid-to-late July. 

Swim team season at Potomac Woods is an exciting and fun-filled time for swimmers of all abilities. Our coaches, parent volunteers, and junior coaches work hard each summer swim season to make the most of the short time we have for summer swim team! Most weeks we have swim team social events on Fridays evenings before our Saturday “A” Meets. Each week we encourage swimmers (and coaches) to dress up and get into the spirit of things with weekly themes. We have other social opportunities for swim team as well throughout the season. At the conclusion of the swim season, we have a team banquet held at PWSC to celebrating our coaches, swimmers, and volunteers. Information is included below on some swim team basics, but details and more information can be found on our Swimtopia Team Website.

 

Pre-Team

The Potomac Woods Pre-Team program is for young swimmers who would like to participate on the swim team but whose swimming skills are not developed enough for swim team. Many of these swimmers make the swim team by season’s end! The pre-team offers a high ratio of older swimmers and coaches to children to ensure that our younger team members receive special instruction.

 

Swim Team Evaluations
Each year we hold evaluations for Pre-Team, and Swim Team. If this is your child’s first time on Pre-Team or Swim Team, please wait to complete your registration and provide payment until the swim team evaluations. The date for evaluations will be announced closer to the 2024 swim season.

 

Swimtopia Team Website
The Swimtopia team website is your go-to place for managing your swimmer and volunteer points throughout the swim season. Additional swim team information including weekly themes, detailed practice schedules, swimmer of the week, time droppers, and more is posted throughout the swim season. Visit the Swimtopia team website for more info or download the Swimtopia app and login from your smartphone.

 

Practices
Swim practices begin at the end of May and the season wraps up around mid to late July. Practices are held every weekday and times vary based on age group. While school is still in session in early June, practice is held after school hours in the afternoon/evening. Once school ends, practices are offered in the morning and evening.

 

Volunteer Information
Potomac Woods Swim Team is run completely by parent volunteers. Every PW Swim Team family is required to volunteer. The PW Demons Swimtopia Team Website tracks each family’s volunteer progress using a point system. Every volunteer duty is assigned a point value and each family will be given points when the duty is complete. Visit our Swimtopia team website for more information.

 

Time Trials – Saturday, June 8, 2024 at Potomac Woods Swim Club
Time Trials are the first swim meet of the season. They take place at PWSC (at home) and swimmers are competing against themselves and one another (not against another team). This is an opportunity for swimmers to set a baseline time in different events, gain experience swimming in a meet without the pressures of competing against another team, and just have some fun with their teammates!

 

Swim Meets 101 – “A” Meets and “B” Meets

Saturday “A” Meets: The Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL) is divided into fifteen divisions (A-O) with the fastest teams in Division A. Assignment to a division is based on a team’s performance during the previous year. For the 2024 summer season, the PWSC Demons are in Division H and will swim against Garrett Park, Daleview, Quince Orchard, Olney Mill, and Rockshire for our A Meets.

Each Saturday morning for 5 weeks, our team competes against one of the above Division H teams. Each week, the swimmers with the 3 fastest times in each non-freestyle event (and the fastest 6 swimmers in freestyle events) qualify to swim in that week’s Saturday meet (based on swimmer availability). “Fastest” is determined as the swimmers with the lowest times in each event. Coach Jonny sets the lineup for Saturday A meets and typically sends them out on Thursday.

 

Wednesday “B” Meets: Each Wednesday evening for 5 weeks, our team participates in “B” meets which are designed to provide competition opportunities for all swimmers on the team. Our B Meets will be held on Wednesday nights against River Falls, Country Glen and Potomac.

 

Make sure to come hungry to time trials and the rest of our home swim meets! The PWSC Snack Bar is open during swim meets. In the mornings we offer freshly made breakfast sandwiches, bagels, donuts, coffee, and more. In the evenings, we typically have pizza, hot dogs, burgers, buttered noodles, and more!
