WELCOME

TO THE WAVE SWIM CLUB 2018-19 SHORT COURSE SEASON REGISTRATION 

The 2018-2019 Wave Short Course Swim Season will officially begin on Saturday, September 15, 2018.  Before swimmers can hop into the pool for their first practice of the season they must be registered on-line with the Wave. This page is the first part of the Wave Swim Club electronic on-line registration process.

The Wave Swim Club on-line registration process is simple for both new and returning members. Once you are registered, you'll get access to your own private family account.  This account will enable you to easily see your account balance, pay your bill, sign-up for swim meets, view swim times, maintain your own contact information, and more.  

Registration is limited due to pool time and coach availability. Once the limit is reached for each training group, you may register to be on the wait list and if there are openings we will contact you.  

IMPORTANT If you have a returning swimmer and they do not show up when you login to register, please contact us.  This will help avoid creating a duplicate account.

 

TRAINING GROUPS, DUES, DISCOUNTS & CANCELLATION

Below is a compact list of the eight training groups practicing with the WAVE this coming season.  To view a more detailed comparison of all eight of the training groups click the link Training Groups here or at the top of the website page. Swimming dues for each group are listed below.  Dues are based on the amount of practice time each group is allocated during the season.  To view this coming season's practice times and dates for each training group click Training Schedule here or on the home page of the website. 

Coaches will place swimmers into their training groups.  Training group placement is based on age and ability.  A swimmers age is determined by the age they will be for the first day of the Minnesota Regional Swimming Championship Meet on March 1st, 2019.   

MULTI SWIMMER FAMILY DISCOUNT: The Wright County Wave offers families with multiple swimmers a discount.  Families will receive $25 off of their 2nd, 3rd and 4th swimmer's initial registration fee billed during registration.  Please make sure to register all family members at the same time.

MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL SWIM TEAM  MEMBER DISCOUNTS: The WAVE offers middle and high school swim team members discounts for swimming during the fall/winter season.  Discounts are outlined below under the Senior Training Group information.  Middle/ High School Swim Team Members will participate with the Senior Training Group.

 WAVE SWIM CLUB CANCELLATION POLICY:    This is not a "pay as you go" program.  Our pool time and lane space is limited so by registering for the Wave Swim Club, you are committing to completing the season and paying dues in full unless you provide the Parent Board of Directors a written request to withdraw within the first 2 weeks of the season.  NO REFUNDS will be issued after the first two weeks of the season.
