Team Information

The Spokane Waves Aquatic Team is a USA Swimming year round competitive swim team.  We are one of 22 teams that make up Inland Empire Swimming (IES), our Local Swimming Committee (LSC).  IES is part of the Northwest Section, which is part of the Western Zone, one of the four national zones created by USA Swimming.

We offer high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to national-level competitor.

All of our coaches, as members of both USA Swimming and the American Swim Coaches Association, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.

The Waves, also known as SWAT, is a nonprofit club, run by its elected
Board of Directors which meets monthly. All members are welcome at each meeting and encouraged to be involved in team activities and fundraisers.

We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team. Thank you for joining us. We are looking forward to meeting you. Please feel free to
ask another member or coach any question you may have.
