About Us


If you're looking for a competitive youth swim team, you've found the right place in SWAT. Our club, now more than twenty-five years old, focuses on age-appropriate, targeted training to help our swimmers learn proper technique. Our year-round team is comprised of over 150 swimmers and includes kids from age 5 up to those graduating from high school. We offer swim groups tailored to specific levels and one of our six practices is right for your swimmer, no matter what his or her skill level. Swimmers advance when the right combination of skill, age and commitment come together.

           The Spokane Waves Aquatic Team currently practices at Whitworth University, the Spokane Fitness Center and Eastern Washington University. Many of our swim meets, especially those for younger swimmers, take place at our facility. Our coaching staff consists of 9 trained and certified coaches with a range of Experience. The coaches working with our most elite swimmers are the same ones preparing our youngest swimmers for their very first meet. Our alumni have gone on to swim and study at top ranked universities across the country including UCLA, Seattle University, University of Idaho and many more.

 SWAT is non-profit, parent-run organization with an elected board of directors focused on bringing the best practices to our club. We run yearly board elections for opening positions in the fall. Board meetings are always on the second Tuesday of the month on the Whitworth campus. All parents are welcome to attend.

SWAT's focus is not only on swimming, however. Most importantly, we help kids learn skills they will need throughout life: discipline, goal setting, time management, healthy habits and more. It's all done in a supportive environment filled with friendship and fun. Our coaches, parents and swimmers practice core values of being champions in and out of the water.
