The Blue Wave summer swim team is part of the Central Iowa Swim conference that includes the following teams: Marshalltown, Ankeny, Walnut Creek, Pella, Grinnell, Newton, Knoxville, Waukee and Rathbun Lake. Participants will gain swimming knowledge, experience, and overall health through this competitive swim program. Emphasis of the program is skill development, sportsmanship and the enjoyment of swim competition. Younger participants should be able to swim multiple lengths of the pool (unassisted using no floatation device) without touching the bottom. Advanced swimmers should possess the ability to skillfully swim strokes in ranges of 2-4,000 yards per practice. Competitive swimming is not a “learn to swim” program.
Prerequisite: Swim 25 yards each front crawl and back crawl without assistance or equipment
