Medicine Hat Waves Swim Club : Background-image

We are a year round competitive swim club training out of the Crestwood Recreation Centre in Medicine Hat, Alberta from September through June. We offer competitive, swim-fit, and developmental programs focusing on the whole swimmer, preparing them for a healthy future that includes fitness and recreation.

Our coaches are all accomplished swimmers and NCCP level 2 certified or the new NCCP fundamentals trained as required by Swimming Canada. Some of our coaches upgraded their education in the 2012 season as they work toward NCCP Age Group Coach or Competition certified status. We were the first swim club in Alberta to sponsor the new NCCP swimming 201 course necessary for Age Group Coach/Competition Introduction trained status and we are not finished yet.

While NCCP certification is required, the training does not make who the coach is and how he/she interacts with the swimmers. As dedicated teachers at various schools in Medicine Hat, our coaches "get" working with kids. They understand the advantages of small student to teacher ratio's and being flexible with both parents and their swimmer.

For advanced swimmers, we offer creative solutions for augmented training while keeping the fee structure the same. Whether your child is interested in fitness, making new friends, or swimming in competition - our program can meet those needs but most importantly, your swimmer will have fun along the way!
