Watford City’s new Rough Rider Event Center is now open and with it came the completion of a new competitive lap pool. To take full advantage of the opportunity the new facility provides for the community’s youth, a group of parents and volunteers founded the Sea Wolves, Watford City’s first swim team. The Sea Wolves team ranges in ages from six to sixteen and are all skill levels. They are excited to learn about the sport and compete in their first official meet next year.
Here, they talk about why they joined the swim team, teamwork and their favorite part about being a Sea Wolf.

“I swam in Idaho. When the Rough Rider Center was open I asked my mom if they had swim team. She said no, not yet, but I kept waiting and was so excited when I heard the news,” said Joanna. “Our coach Jamie works us harder than in Idaho, but it’s easier because I’ve done it before. I like the breaststroke best.”
