COVID-19 Update March 23
Good morning parents,
I know there are a lot of concerns and questions regarding the start of the season, potential refunds, etc. As of now, the season has NOT been cancelled or delayed. The plan is for the first practice to be May 11 and continue with our regular schedule. If anything changes, the season decision will come from GCSL (which I am in frequent contact with) and I'm sure their decision will be based on state and national guidelines for sports and public gatherings.
I have emailed SwimShop in reference to an extension on the discounted swimsuit price, but please know that you are not required to purchase a suit with a team logo and a plain black suit is perfectly acceptable. The Board and I will be supporting SwimShop in whatever decision they make, as it is their business decision, and not one for us to make. IF the season is cancelled due to COVID-19, then we will give further details on refunds taking place and next steps.
For now, we ask you continue to be flexible, and continue registration as normal if you wish to swim this summer. That is all we can do with so much uncertainty and new challenges for all of us. We welcome any further questions and concerns and are here to help! We will continue to keep you as updated as possible via the website, FB page and this email. If you are not receiving emails, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Thank you Wahoos!
Carrie Wooten, Board President

Chateau Elan Wahoo Swim Team
A summer swim team that operates at the Chateau Elan Sports Club mid-May until the end of June. Swimmers compete in a minimum of two swim meets against other teams in the Gwinnett County Swim League.
Swimmers that qualify for the GCSL County Championship continue on and swim in the County Meet at GA Tech in the middle of July.
The swim team is for swimmers age 5-18 who can successfully complete a lap across the pool. (if you have a four year old who is a strong swimmer they can join the team too!)
Wahoo coaches work on stroke technique in all four strokes, skills such as dives and turns, and improving endurance. The Wahoo coaching staff emphasizes team spirit and sportsmanship in a fun and friendly environment.
The CE Wahoos is a volunteer run organization and requires parent participation to run smoothly - every family helps out!
Mini Wahoo Swim Lessons
This lesson program is for ages 3-6, who are not ready for the full swim team. The ratio is 1 coach: 4 swimmers, and this program operates the month of June. These new swimmers have an opportunity to show what they have learned in front of the whole team!
