Madison West Girls Swimming & Diving

About Girls Swim & Dive
Madison West High School has swimming and diving teams that compete at the Varsity and Junior Varsity levels. The team competes in the Big Eight conference. Open tryouts begin mid-August, and the season runs through Mid-November. Home meets take place at West with the pool entrance off Ash Street.

Over the last 47 years, Madison West has won a total of twenty-six WIAA Team Championships in swimming and diving. The West Girls Team has won 15 of these titles--more than any other high school in the State. This legacy includes four consecutive championships on three separate occasions (1980-83, 1989-92 and 1995-98.) In the process, the team has captured 79 WIAA Event titles, again more than any other high school in Wisconsin.

Swim Tryouts and Practice
Madison West Women's Swimming and Diving will begin its 50th year in the Fall of 2019.

2019 Tryouts Start on August 13 in the West Pool - for more info CLICK HERE!


Tuesday - Friday
7:00 AM - 10:00 AM
@ West pool

The first week of the season is tryouts for any swimmer interested in being on the team. Since space is limited and there are a limited number of entries for meets we keep the team to 36 swimmers. The coaching staff will make the final decision. It is mandatory to be at all tryout practices. Once the team is finalized, all swimmers should bring a snorkel and fins to practice each day.

Varsity Season: August 13th - mid-November
JV Season: August 13th - late October
