REGISTRATION PROCESS

Go to www.lakesregionwavemakers.com and complete the online registration for your swimmer(s). 

Click on the “START REGISTRATION” Tab located in the left menu box.

Please complete the registration by May 24th, 2022. 

At the end of the process you will be instructed to print and complete a Medical Information Form for each swimmer and NEW SWIMMERS will also have to print a 2020 USA Swim Registration Form.

The USA Swim Registration is now part of the online process so returning swimmers do not have to complete and submit the paper form.  It is your responsibility to make sure the information on the swimmer(s) is accurate and complete, including using the FULL middle name of the swimmer if he/she has one.  New swimmers that have never been a USA Swim member must complete a paper 2020 USA Swim Reg. form and provide a copy of his/her birth certificate with your payment of $89. After registering with USA swim the swimmer must register with TWC.

The final step is to submit the Medical Info. Form, USA Swim & Birth Certificate if applicable and payment.  We encourage returning swimmers to register asap and either drop it off at The Wellness Complex or mail payment and paperwork to:  The Wellness Complex, 827 North Main Street, Laconia NH 03246 and mark it as TWC Wavemakers registration. You will not be able to sign up for meets until the registration is completed online and all forms and payment are received.

Swimmers will NOT be allowed to attend practice or sign up for meets unless all registration forms including a Covid-19 waiver and fees are collected.  **All NEW swimmers MUST provide a copy of their Birth Certificate.

The TWC Wavemakers are excited to offer a summer 2022 swim-team season. We begin our season May 31st, and it will run through to the championship meet (first weekend of August). Practice attendance is flexible - there are no mandatory practices or meets, however the more you participate the more improvement you will see.

OUR MISSION

We strive to provide a competitive swimming opportunity to area youth of all abilities in a supportive and challenging environment. Coaches, parents and swimmers work to foster the following ideals: sportsmanship, team pride, self-esteem, physical fitness, and commitment to self-improvement, learning & practicing swimming techniques, and having fun! Our swimmers range in age from 5-19 years and abilities from novice to New England Championships level.

PRACTICE AND SWIM GROUPS

Practices will be held Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings.

The Practice groups are broken up into 2 groups detailed below.

Mondays/Tuesdays/Thursdays

Group A- 5:15-6:20;   Group B-6:15-7:45

(All practice times are afternoon/evening times)

Regular practices start Tuesday, May 31st, 2021 for all swimmers! 

Swimmers will be in 1 of two sessions based on age and ability - see 'Groups' below. Swimmers can arrive on deck up to 10 minutes before practice begins. If swimmers come with suits on that would limit gatherings in locker rooms.  With 2 groups we need to stick to the practice times and parents will need to be on time to pick up their swimmers. Parents will be given 1 warning if they are more than 10 minutes late after practice ends. After the first warning the parent’s account will be charged $15. 

Special practice for new swimmers: On May 26th, 5:15-6:15, we will have a special introductory practice for swimmers who have not been on the Wavemakers before. This will be a quieter time to ease into practices and for swimmers and coaches to get to know each other. 

Groups

NOTE: Due to the limitation on numbers of swimmers, we may need to move swimmers to a different group. The practice times listed above for each group may need to be changed based on numbers.

Group A: Approximate age, 10 & under. Swimmers must be independent in the water, have taken some swim lessons, be able to put their face in the water, and swim at least the length of the pool.  These practice sessions will offer more one on one attention from the Coach and will focus on teaching proper basic swim techniques.

Group B: Approximate ages  11 & up, and stronger, more seasoned swimmers. Swimmers must be independent in the water. They should have some experience with the four swim strokes, diving and turning.  These practice sessions will focus on refining technique and improving endurance through drills and instruction.
