Fall Swim 2018

Fall 2018 Swim Schedule

This year we are happy to again offer a Fall Swim program for the kids in our community.  The tadpole program is for children ages 4-7 who are deep water safe, able to swim 10 - 15 yards (even if it isn't pretty), and able to follow directions in a small group.  The aim of the program is to help get these kids interested in, and ready for, the Tidalwaves swim team for the 2019 Spring/Summer MSL Season.   The 9 & Under program is for those who can make it across the pool, are comfortable with side breathing, and are ready for the swim team experience. Registration for Tidalwaves programs will open August 10th.

  • All NEW swimmers (those that have not swum with Tadpoles or Tidalwaves yet) ages 8 & Under need to be registered for a $5 Assessment before we can register your child for the program.  For those who register early, Coach Marie will be offering assessments Thursday, August 30th (2:00-4:30pm) and Tuesday, September 4th (2:30-3:45pm)Priority registration will go first to those who can make the August 30th date, and then to those who make the September 4th date. If there are still spots available after the September 4th assessment, additional assessment dates will be offered.  If based on the assessment your child is 'ready' for our program the $5 will be applied toward the registration fee.  Please select "Assessment" as your swimmer's registration group when you register.
  • If your swimmer is RETURNING (that is has been a tadpole before) but you are in doubt about which program better suits your child's abilities, please contact Coach Marie via e-mail at
  • We are offering two programs for our 9 & Under team ready swimmers.  Group 1 are generally swimmers in their first year of swimming and still mastering freestyle and backstroke.  Group 2 are generally swimmers in their second or third year of swimming and are ready for a little more practice time and distance.  If you are unsure of whether your RETURNING swimmer child is better suited to the 9 & Under Group 1 or the 9 & Under Group 2, please contact Coach Marie via e-mail at
  • We are also offering 3 sessions for our Tadpole level swimmers.  Please note the age groupings for each session.  Exceptions to these age groupings will be made only based on skill level at Coach Marie's discretion.
  • Again this Year:  Tidalwaves and Coach Marie are teaming up with the well respected USA swim team, the Marin Pirates, to offer more swim opportunities for the kids in our community!  Coach Marie will coach with both Tidalwaves and the Pirates in their programs which run from 3:45-5:15 pm M-F.  Please click here for more information on the Marin Pirates' programs that are suitable for swimmers ages 5-18.  Note that to register for one of the Pirates' programs you will need to register through the Pirates' website.
    • Registration for Tidalwaves' programs will Open August 10th.
    • Registration for the Marin Pirates' programs will Open sometime in August.
