Welcome to the 2017-18 Nu Wave Swim Club Registration Information for High Performance groups (Tidal Wave, Cyclone, Tsunami, Senior, and National). We are happy to have you and your swimmer(s) as a part of our swim team. Once a swimmer has been provided their group placement from the coaching staff, families may proceed thru team registration. We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing for team registration. High Performance Registration link is located on the HOMEPAGE, on the right-side, select HIGH PERFORMANCE REGISTRATION or at the bottom of this page.

WHO WE ARE: Nu Wave Swim Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is one of the most comprehensive year-round competitive swim clubs in the South, with swimmers ranging from five years old to adults and led by Head Coach Ross Hedrick. We train and coach swimmers by teaching proper technique, physical fitness, and healthy habits, while instilling "championship behavior"—sportsmanship, teamwork, integrity, hard work, and discipline. 

OUR MISSION: The Nu Wave Swim Club develops life skills through a goal-oriented, competitive curriculum.

Our HIGH PERFORMANCE Groups: These groups focus on a more advanced training structure that has stronger program commitments to allow each athlete the opportunity to reach their competitive potential.  These groups are:

 

  • Tidal Wave: An introductory competitive group for ages 7-10 years old, who can complete at least 100 yards of continuous freestyle or backstroke and compete in all four strokes legally. This group will emphasize the development of the techniques for all four competitive strokes while meeting challenges in racing situations. Practice location is Tulane University Reily Center.
  • Cyclone: An intermediate to advanced group for ages 9-12 years old, who are proficient in all four strokes, including starts and turns for each stroke, and demonstrate an understanding of intervals. This group will emphasize technical proficiency, the development of interval training and race strategy, and introduction to endurance training. Practice location is Tulane University Reily Center.
  • Tsunami: Advanced age group swimmers, ages 13-15 years-old, who demonstrate a high level of ability and commitment to swimming. Our group focus will be on the continued enhancement of race strategy, technical development, speed, and endurance training. Practice location is UNO Lakefront Arena.
  • Senior: A group of mature, responsible, and high achieving swimmers, ages 14 & older. Senior swimmers have the ability to train at a very high level. Swimmers have the desire to set and achieve new personal goals and take ownership of their goals and performances. Practice location is UNO Lakefront Arena.
  • National: The most advanced group of 15 & older swimmers who have the ability to train at a very high level and are willing to commit completely to the program. Swimmers will develop skills necessary to succeed at Regional/National competitions with a goal of collegiate swimming. Practice location is UNO Lakefront Arena.

 

Things to Know

  1. Current swimmers will have until August 1 to declare their intention to continue with the program on Team Unify “Events.” Making this election will allow the swimmer’s account to remain active and reserves their spot on the team until the registration deadline. After August 1, group spots will no longer be reserved for returning swimmers and will be assigned on a space-available basis. All returning swimmers need to complete registration by September 3. Please consult your coach for appropriate training group placement.
  2. Fees for Nu Wave High Performance swimmers may include three components: a non-refundable registration fee, annual (or monthly) dues, and a minimum Swim-a-thon fundraising obligation. In addition, depending on a swimmer's activities, there may also be certain merchandise, meet, and travel costs or fees.
  3. A non-refundable $275.00 annual registration fee is required for Tidal Wave, Cyclone, Tsunami, Senior, and National training groups. This fee includes USS registration, swim cap, team shirt, and certain fixed costs incurred by the team in handling a swimmer. Annual registration fees must be paid upon registration. Swimmers joining the program after February 1 will be offered a reduced annual registration fee of $175 and less for summer participation.
  4. Nu Wave is a year-round swim club committed to paying coaches and pool rental 12 months of the year. Therefore, dues are based on a twelve-month contract for High Performance Groups (Tidal Wave, Cyclone, Tsunami, Senior and National).
  5. Our fiscal year is September 1- August 31.
  6. New swimmers to the program are allowed a two-week trial period.
  7. There are no annual payment refunds for withdrawal from the team after November 1, 2017, for High Performance Groups.
  8. There is an annual payment plan or monthly payment plan for High Performance Groups. There are 10 monthly payments made on the first of the month from October-June with the first month paid upon team registration.
  9. In the event a swimmer moves groups during the year, the monthly payment cost will be adjusted to reflect the group move. If the swimmer paid the annual payment, a prorated cost difference will be invoiced to the swimmer’s account.
  10. Team Unify provides families access to their private account to view swim history times, update contact information, review billing summary, and more.
  11. When completing the emergency contact information, please list the person and number you wish to be contacted first in the event of an emergency.
