Wasilla Waves accepts swimmers year round, and we are always looking to grow. We offer tryouts once a month at the Wasilla Pool. Tryouts are typically on the Monday of the last full week of each month.  Please check our calendar page for specific dates and times.   The basic expectations to be on the team can be found on our Practice Groups page under the Swim Groups tab.

The first step in joining WWSC is to send an e-mail to our administrative/coaching staff by using the Contact Us tab.  We will confirm our next tryout date and answer any questions you may have.  After the tryout, the coach will advise what practice group your child may qualify for and our Membership Coordinator will be available to explain the on-line registration process and other club related information.
