Welcome All Swimmers and Families

The Spokane Waves will be holding our tryouts for the 2017-2018 season on the following dates:

The Spokane Waves Aquatic Team offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Waves to provide specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of their abilities.

Before any swimmer can join the team they must go through our tryout/evaluation process. The evaluation (water test) is used by the coaches to determine the ability level of the athlete and which training group they would be best suited for.

Swimmers will be tested on the proficiency and legality of the four competitive strokes.  While swimmers are being tested by our coaches we try to have parent volunteers on deck to talk about the program and answer questions.

To set up a tryout contact our coach Head Coach Sean Muncie,

Minimum requirements for Ripples group: Basic abilities in the freestyle and backstroke strokes plus independence in the water. Click here for the full list of Group Descriptions.
