Nu Wave Swim Club Families,


We have had many teams reach out to us to offer practice space for anyone displaced due to Hurrican Ida. Additionally, we have many families asking for options for their swimmer while away from the New Orleans/Slidell area. Below we will list swim team contacts for regionally programs who have offered assistance during this trying time. We will continue to update this list to add teams for the regions that our swimmers have exacuated to.
