When and where are new swimmer evaluations?
All new swimmers to BWST need to have an evaluation done before they can join the team.  Please contact our team administrator at bw-admin@pvbluewave.com,  if you have any questions.

What to wear?
Swimmers must come to the evaluation session ready to swim. This includes:

  • Proper swim training suits. Baggy shorts or "beach wear" are not acceptable. 
  • Goggles
  • A swim cap (girls/boys with long hair)

Why does my swimmer need to be evaluated?
Before any new swimmers can join the BLUE WAVE SWIM TEAM they will need to be evaluated. The evaluation (water test) is used by the coaches to determine the ability level of the swimmer and which training squad they would be best suited for.

What to expect?
Evaluations will determine if the child is ready for an organized swim team, and at what level (developmental or competitive). Swimmers will be asked to swim a lap (or a few laps) of each stroke they know how to do.  Evaluations do not take more than 15 minutes, and the coach doing the evaluation will speak with you when it's over about ability, readyness, placement, waitlists, etc. 

Why should my child swim?

There are many benefits to getting your child involved in competitive swimming, including:

  • Swimming promotes physical development.
  • Swimming develops aerobic endurance and is one of the most beneficial forms of cardiovascular exercise.
  • Swimming enhances a child’s natural flexibility and promotes muscle development.
  • Swimming develops superior coordination.
  • Swimming is the most injury-free of all children’s sports.
  • Swimming is a sport that will bring children fitness and enjoyment for life.
  • Swimming promotes time management and is one of the top academically achieving sports.
