AN AWESOME KICKOFF TO SUMMER 2022 May 14-15, 2022 Last weekend, High 5 Blue Wave Swimming hosted its first Long Course Meet in 3 years. The High 5 campus was buzzing with the energy of over 270 swimmers and well over 500 spectators throughout the weekend, and we had some great swims from all the clubs that came to compete. Out of the 7 teams who participated, Blue Wave finished in 3rd place overall. Congratulations to Tampa Elite Aquatics Manta Rays for capturing the team trophy and a special thanks...

AAU LOVE 2 SWIM MEET - (February 19th, 2022) We had a great intra squad meet last month with swimmers from our SHARKS, Age Group and Senior groups stepping up to race each other.

Big thanks to the BW swimmers...

Please see * FINAL RESULTS for the AAU Friday Night at The Races Meet. RESULTS *(Updated with changes to 9-10 Boys events - Brandon Fernandez was mistakenly scored with girls) This was an intra-squad meet in which our Blue Wave swimmers got to compete against one another under the lights.

Hi All, Today is the last day to sign up for the meet this weekend. That makes this a different kind of Wednesday Wisdom post. This event is open to all of our swimmers. Please note, you do have to sign up for each day/session independently. We are still developing and refining the new software. Getting the ability to enter multiple days and sessions in one file is on the development board, but it is just not ready right now. Thanks for your patience as we continue to work out...

Hi All, I have said it before, being a pioneer means you get to go where no one has gone before. Blazing that trail can be difficult; and sometimes you run into the unexpected. Well, we had some issues with the software we are developing for meets. It runs great, it just was not ready for a multi-day, multi-session meet. That’s coming, but apparently not by next weekend. We had to do a minor work-around. Instead of entering the meet in one step, you will have to enter once for...
