The Hills West Waves Swim Team strives to
help each child improve their swimming skills, challenge their
personal best, and understand the importance of teamwork. We
provide a balance between recreational and competitive swimming in
a safe, fun, and supportive community environment so that each
child learns, is challenged, gains a sense of accomplishment, and
Hills West Swim Team is a member of the Mountain Hi Swim
League and must follow the rules and regulations of the League.
The League has four Divisions A, B, C and D. Over the years, Hills
West has been in different divisions. Placement in the divisions is
based upon several factors: previous year’s win/loss record,
the size of the team, number of All-Star qualifiers and number of
All-Star participants. For the 2020 swim season, the Hills
West Waves will be in the C Division and will swim against
other teams within that Division.
Our philosophy at the Hills West
Waves Swim Team is that learning to swim should be simple, logical,
and fun. We understand that every child is different with different
needs and will progress at their own pace. Allowing children to
explore and make mistakes is an integral part of learning. Our
excellent lifeguard-certified coaching staff is available for
private as well as semi-private lessons to help your child learn to
swim. Please talk with a member of our coaching staff about
setting up a lesson plan for your child(ren).
