Dear Swimmers and Parents:
Welcome to the West Texas Typhoon Swim Club. You have chosen one of the
finest and most unique swim organizations in the city of El Paso. WETT
is a year-round competitive swim team that is registered with USA
Swimming and the Border Swimming Association. The WETT program is
designed to provide professional technique instruction and training for
young people ages 5–20.
The WETT swim team
was created out of a passion for swimming and raising kids. The
founders had the vision to create a team that provided an
opportunity for young people to experience competitive swimming while
developing six essential components of the whole self—physical
strength, inner strength, talent, intellect, emotions, and spirit. By
designing a program that balances these six components, it was believed
that young swimmers could become successful athletes and successful
The team is an extended family. We spend a lot of time together and see
each other often. We have holiday parties for our swimmers, tailgate
parties for the parents, and car pools that help each other meet the
demanding schedule. We are always searching for better and more
innovative programs that will help our young athletes grow into
successful adults. We look to other successful swim programs to help
mentor and improve our team. We provide travel opportunities so our
athletes may challenge their abilities and experience the world from
other perspectives. To this end, the number of swimmers on our team is
limited in order to continually promote the balanced approach nurtured
by our swim club.

Parents' Handbook. For best viewing of the Handbook we recommend
saving it to your hard-drive.
Please take time to
read this booklet. It is designed to answer many questions about
how our team operates. If you have additional questions, please
don’t hesitate to ask a veteran parent, coach, or board member
for help. We look forward to an exciting 2010–2011 swim season.
Let's get WETT!
