Wavemakers >

Wavemakers is our non-competitive team and is a great starting point for beginning swimmers who would like to swim competitively in the future. It is an intermediate program between swim lessons and swim team designed to work with swimmers who have a goal of being on swim team or needing to work on their and competitive swimming techniques. Our Wavemakers practices are run separate from the competitive team on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They run in 5 week sessions from September through May.
