Who are the Willoughby
Waves? The Willoughby Waves are a separate
entity from the Willoughby Home Owners Association and is
financially supported by the swim fees collected and donations from
our Corporate sponsors. Swimmers must be residents of
Willoughby Station to qualify as a member of the team.
The Willoughby Waves swim team is
a member of the Nashville Swim League. We are
celebrating our 21st season. We constantly have 80 - 90
swimmers per season. Many of our swimmers return to the
Willoughby Waves Swim Team for the summer season. In addition
we have new swimmers from the neighborhood join the team each
year. We feel it is not only important for our children to
become stronger swimmers but also have a good time. The
neighborhood swim team develops teamwork skills, and builds a
sense of community, not only for our swimmers, but also for their
parents. The more experienced swimmers help out with the
younger/newer swimmers. This develops strong friendships over
the age groups that last for years.
Josh Tinley will
be our Head Coach.
Josh lives in our neighborhood and has 3 children. Josh is a middle
school teacher and coaches the middle school swim team. We are
very happy to have Josh as our Head Coach. He understands
swimming requires time, patience, discipline, and lots of
Each year many parents step up to
represent the team on an administrative level. Your parent leads
this year are Angel Flesher, Bree Cordes, Cylie Bitler, Dana Hix
and Jerry Chalk. With the support of our sponsors we have been able
to provide each registered swimmer with a Team T-shirt and a
Willoughby Waves Team Swim Cap binding the children as a unified
team and supportive neighbors and friends.
