Summer Swim


Members of the BWaves competitive swim team are expected to understand water safety concepts, swim independently during daily practices (45 minutes to an hour long), and participate at team events, including the swim meets. The season will consist of a practice meet (Time Trials), six dual meets, and a final tri-meet (Divisionals).


BWaves must be able to:

  • demonstrate confidence, comfort, and an understanding of water safety

  • swim unassisted for 25 meters on their stomach

  • swim unassisted for 25 meters on their back


All swimmers new to the team MUST be evaluated in order to join the team!


If your swimmer is new to swimming, you must schedule a time for a swim evaluation. Currently, we anticipate hosting evaluations from 6:30-7:00pm each day during the first week of scheduled practices (May 29- June 1) at the Bridlewood pool. There will also be an evaluation time available at Central Park Aquatics Center in Manassas during one of our Off-Season Swim sessions (Date: May 20). Your swimmer cannot practice with the team until after they have been evaluated. (Please schedule your evaluation by emailing teammanager@bwaves.org).


However, if your swimmer has legal times in all four strokes from USA Swimming and/or PWSL (or another swim team), they CAN and SHOULD practice with the team from day one. Their evaluation will take place during their normal practice time during the first week of practice. (Please provide a screenshot, link, or other evidence to board@bwaves.org ).
