WAVE Month to Month Groups

WAVE offers four convenient and affordable month to month options which are perfect for new USA Swimming members and/or those looking for less commitment/cost to start out.  Our Beginning Competitive, JV , Level 1 & Varsity groups offer multiple days/times/locations to best fit your schedule and work for the most novice swimmers up to experienced high school swimmers.  Month to month groups carry NO cancelation fee!  So you can participate in other activities with the convenience in practice times and affordability offered by WAVE.

 

Intrasquad Meets for all Month to Month Groups

Intrasquad meets are for our youngest/newest swimmers.  These are very low-key and are similar to time trials at your neighborhood teams.  We introduce the swimmers to USA Swimming rules for meets and how they operate.  The meets are optional, but we highly recommend attending to help the swimmers/coaches/parents track their progress.  Intrasquad Meets are held about once per month and consist of 25s/50s of each stroke.  On the flip-side, your swimmer(s) can certainly attend our normal USA Swimming meets.

Year Round Groups

Our year round groups follow the traditional USA Swimming Club format. These groups are offered from September through July or early August depending on the competition schedule, with a break for the swimmers right before traditional school begins and a short break after short course season coinciding with the schools spring break if possible. There is a cancelation fee for stopping early as we have to plan for coaches and lane rentals based on the number of swimmers in the program. The ages and requirements are guidelines and some swimmers may fall outside the listed range, but are a compatible fit for a training group. The groups are based on training ability and not racing ability which can differ greatly.
