ABOUT SPOKANE WAVES

The Spokane Waves Aquatic Team (SWAT) is a year-round competitive swim team with our members participating September through August. SWAT is run by a volunteer Board of Directors and the Head Coach.  Spokane Waves Aquatic Team is a non-profit corporation governed by rules and regulations as stated in the organization’s by-laws.  Membership policies are set forth by the Board of Directors and the Head Coach and can be found on the team web-site.  All members of SWAT are expected to abide by the rules, regulations, and policies of the team.  Copies of any documents not available on the web-site will be provided upon request.

SWIMMING COMPETITION

Swim meets are available for athletes of all ability levels.  Most meets listed on the 2021-2022 meet schedule are “Team Meets” for all swimmers, and all families are encouraged to attend these meets.  Developmental Meets, offered a couple times per year, are a great way for younger and newer swimmers to compete in a smaller meet and get a “feel” for what a larger meet is like.  Swim meet and competition dates and formats may fluctuate significantly during the 2021-2022 season as hosts adapt to local and national Covid-19 health department and local government requirements.

TEAM UNIFORM

Swimmers are required to wear a team cap and team suit when representing the team at swim meets.  A team latex cap and team shirt is provided for each new swimmer upon receipt of registration fees.  Team caps and team suits are available for purchase through our partnership with TYR.  Warm-ups, swim bags, and additional swim gear is also available for purchase through team orders throughout the year.   A limited selection of team caps, as well as practice suits, caps, goggles, etc. are available with the SWAT coaches.

 

COMMUNICATION

Team communication is accomplished primarily through the SWAT website (www.spokanewaves.org) and e-mail.  Current information and upcoming events will be found on the homepage of the web site.  A user name and a password to log into the website will be sent to you after registration has been completed.  Logging into the website allows you to view current invoices, accounts, and information not available to non-members. Once logged into your account, please add and verify your and/or your swimmer’s contact information for sms/text notifications if you would like to receive texts.  Coaches and Board members are available by e-mail; check for their contact information on the website by clicking on “Coaches/Board of Directors” in the upper right hand corner of the main webpage.
