The Calabasas Waves Coaching Staff believes that every swimmer is unique with different skill levels and goals. We strive to provide every swimmer the opportunity to reach his/her potential by providing tremendous coaching, guidance, and personal attention. We believe that swimmers who enjoy being at practice make the best swimmers and making sure that swimmers are placed into the skill level appropriate group is an important part of that process. Our coaches work together with the common goal of continuity and developmental progression.
Our Developmental Program is designed to teach the skills of each stroke in a gradual progression. The goal is to learn all 4 competitive strokes, turns and starts, to learn something new each day, and to have fun! Upon completing the Jr Waves, swimmers will be proficient in all 4 strokes, all 4 turns, dives, interval training, and pacing.
For advanced swimmers, we offer 2 groups. Placement into a group will depend on the swimmer's level of commitment. The range of commitment begins with the Waves, which include swimmers who swim a couple times a week, to the Sr Waves who swim a minimum of 4 times a week. To swim with the Sr Waves, a swimmer must meet certain time standards and attend monthly meets.
