SWIM LESSONS

Waves

2019-2020 Westerville Aquatic Club WAVES Program

  •   Be introduced to competitive swimming with an emphasis on instruction and an everybody swimsphilosophy.

  •   Learn correct technique and rules for each of the four competitive strokes.

  •   Focus on fun, building self-confidence, and pre- paring for competitive swimming.

  •   Compete in a Saturday morning meet where swimmers will be placed in skill-appropriate events.

  • The WAVES program is for the level 8 or higher SwimAmerica swimmer who wants to go to the next level beyond the in- structional focus of our SwimAmerica group classes. Com- pared to SwimAmerica group lessons, the WAVES group practices are longer, more endurance-based, and meet twice a week. Coaching is conducted from the deck and will be very similar to a competitive swim club practice. This group is also perfect for anyone who enjoyed summer league swimming, and wants to continue swimming during the school year but is not able to commit to or qualify for a year-round competitive swim team.

    Qualifications: 50 yards freestyle, 25 yards backstroke and have an idea of how to swim breaststroke (legal kick required) and butterfly; or be in station 8 or higher in SwimAmerica. Please schedule an assessment with our coaching staff be- fore registering.

    Location: Practices will be at the Oakstone Academy indoor pool, conveniently located near I270 and Westerville Road.

    Registration:  MUST COMPLETE BOTH 1 & 2!!

  1. Register with WAC to set up an account on the website. Registration Fees ($50-150, with discounts for early registration), Booster Fee ($50), and Ohio Swimming Membership Fee ($80) will be assessed for each swimmer upon initial registration. 

  2. Sign up athletes for individual Waves sessions through the Meets tab on the website or using the links in the table below, with the individual session fee assessed for each session. Each session must be registered for individually during the open registration period. Registration opens and closes according to the schedule below. NEW Families must wait to be approved of the initial registration in step 1 above before registering for a Waves session. Approval is typically within 48 hrs.

  3. A $115 credit will be applied to each account upon payment for the first session that can be applied to your fees for a second session.

  • Not quite ready for WAVES? The WAVES group will strive to refine stroke technique so if your child is still having trouble learning the butterfly and/or breaststroke you might want to consider taking a SwimAmerica class. Lessons are offered through the school year in convenient 5 week session, and through the summer in 1 week sessions
