Nu Wave Swim Club's Year-round programs are referred to as our "High Performance Groups." Our High Performance Groups follow a standard competitive schedule as outlined by USA Swimming (USAS*). Swimmers participating in our High Performance Groups are expected to commit to a full year of practices and competitions. 
Short Course Season: Mid-August through Mid-March
Long Course Season: Mid-March through July
Our practice plan and swim meet schedule correspond to the Championship meets set up at the end of each season. Practice schedules and meet schedules will be made available by the end of July for the upcoming swim year.
*USAS, United States of America Swimming, is our sport's governing body. USAS sanctions and insures all coaches, swimmers, venues, practices and competitions.
High Performance Groups
Our High Performance Groups focus on a more advanced training structure that includes stronger program commitments to allow each athlete the opportunity to reach their competitive potential. Nu Wave Swim Club is proud to offer our High Performance Group Athletes both a Certified Dry-land Coach and a Certified Nutrition Coach in addition to our highly qualified coaching staff.
The requirements and expectations are listed below for each group and will take affect starting at the beginning of the current season. The progression of each swimmer through our training groups is based on a swimmer exceeding the expectations of their current group. Through constant evaluation from the coaching staff and a commitment to the higher expectations of the next group, each swimmer is identified by our coaches for potential advancement. The majority of group movement will take place as we enter a new swim season. However, swimmers demonstrating exceptional progression within a practice group may be offered the opportunity to transition to the next group during a swim season. Ultimately, all decisions are determined by the Lead Coach of a swimmer's current group with approval of the Head Coach of Nu Wave Swim Club and based on the individual level of each swimmer.
