Swim Team fees are $100 per participant this year.
My name is Ty Spillane and I’d like to welcome you to the West Broadway Swim Team’s 2022 season! I am brand new here and I’d like to introduce myself as a head coach this year. I came from the Chicagoland area to Columbia where I swim and study at the University of Missouri. I love it here, so I am staying this summer! I have competitively swam since I was 10 years old and I have won several State Championships in Illinois and a Junior National Title. I am very excited to bring my experience to this swim club. At Mizzou, I study Finance and Economics. I have also recently competed in the SEC championships in the 100 Breaststroke, 200 Breaststroke, and 100 Butterfly! I grew up in Sugar Grove, Illinois, a small town 45 miles West of Chicago. I attended Marmion Academy and swam for the Academy Bullets Swim Club. In high school I also played Football, and Baseball.
This opportunity is so exciting and I am looking forward to getting to know all of the families of this great organization. I have previously taught swim lessons and occasionally coached my high school JV team. I continue to prioritize positive coaching to establish a successful organization.
Swim Team sign up is now open, visit https://wbswimclub.com/join/swimteam to sign up! I am extremely excited to officially start sending out information about the 2023 summer swim team season. It is with great excitement that I can announce I will be returning as the head coach this summer. I am so excited to work with all of you.
For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Ty Spillane. I am a current Sophomore swimmer at the University of Missouri. I came here from the Chicago suburbs where I attended Marmion Academy, where I won several state swimming championships and a junior national championship. At Mizzou, I am dual majoring in Finance and Economics. I have competed in the past two SEC swimming championships.
I have some important dates to release so we can start to prepare for the season. Our first practice will be June 5th at 8:30-9:30am for the entirety of the team (no 9:30 session). Our first meet will be on June 14th at home.
This year we will be holding morning practices on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday afternoons, we will have a swim meet. We will be having two practice groups. We will have a more advanced level at 8:30am and a more beginner oriented practice at 9:30am. Practices will last one hour. All practices and meets are highly encouraged but there is no punishment for missing and we hope that you can make as many as possible to make the best out of your experiences. We are super flexible and I understand that summers are crazy busy so we are willing to adapt!
We will be asking for parent volunteers to help with swim meets this year so please keep posted for a signup genius link to fulfill those roles.
We are currently finalizing the selection of our assistant coaches and we are super excited to announce them once we do!
As our league continues to finalize dates, I will continue to release information. For any more questions about the season, feel free to contact me! I cannot wait to work with you guys this summer!
For any questions, please contact me.
