Link: Waveriders Schedule May 3 to June 11, 2021

 

The Waveriders Swim Club offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Waveriders Swim Club to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.

We have both Competitive and Pre-competitive programs:

A quick overview:
Pre-Competitive Program – This is an introduction to the competitive program in a friendly environment. Swimmers will work on the fundamentals of all strokes, starts and turns, with a fun format, introducing them to competitive swimming. There are four levels in this program.

Competitive Program  - In order to enter the competitive programs, you must have obtained or are nearing the 200IM standard of sub-4 minutes. Swimmer groups are chosen at the coach’s discretion.

* If you are uncertain what group your swimmer should be registered in, or if you would like to move your swimmer from Pre-competitive to Competitive please contact Coach Jeritt at [email protected] or use the Contact Us link in the left hand column of the Waveriders website. *
