Welcome New Head Swim Coach
We are excited to announce that Diana Matthews will be the Head Swim Coach for the upcoming 2017 summer season. Diana is currently the Head Coach for Winchester High School girls and boys varsity swim team where she has been since 2010. She brings over 10 years coaching and education experience and has worked with swimmers at all age levels. Diana’s coaching philosophy focuses on having fun while learning the fundamentals of swimming.
Diana grew up in Winchester and was on the WHS swim team from 1987-1990 earning the role of Captain her senior year. She swam all four years while attending Regis College receiving Rookie of the Year in 1991. In addition, she was the recipient of the Unsung Hero Award during her senior year. She presently lives in Stoneham with her husband, and 3 children.
In addition to the regular practice and meet schedule, Diana will be offering pre-season practices as well as afternoon specialty clinics during the regular season. More details to follow. Please join us in welcoming Diana to WSTC!
All kids ages 5 to 16 years old are welcome to join the swim team. We especially encourage our teenage members to join the swim team — it’s a great way to meet friends and stay in shape. Sign up forms will be available at the front desk once the club opens. The cost for participation this year is $50 per swimmer and includes the team banquet and other team activities.
WSTC competes in the Middlesex Summer Swim League. Other clubs in the league include Sun Valley, Lexington Town Pool, Winchester Boat Club, Paint Rock Pool and Winchester Country Club. Swim Meets are typically held on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m.
We will be holding afternoon swim practices again this summer to accommodate our busy teenage swimmers.
