Here you will find information for our Year Round High Performance groups (Tidal Wave, Cyclone, Tsunami, Senior, and National) and Lakeside Site groups (Lakeside Tidal Wave, Lakeside Cyclone, Lakeside Tsunami, Lakeside Senior, and Lakeside National). We are happy to have you and your swimmer as part of our swim team. Once a swimmer has been provided their group placement from the coaching staff, families may proceed thru team registration.



WHO WE ARE: Nu Wave Swim Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is one of the most comprehensive year-round competitive swim clubs in the South, with swimmers starting at five years old to collegiate student-athletes. Our program is led by Head Coach Ross Hedrick. We train and coach swimmers by teaching proper technique, physical fitness, and healthy habits, while instilling "championship behavior"—sportsmanship, teamwork, integrity, hard work, and discipline. 


OUR MISSION: The Nu Wave Swim Club develops life skills through a goal-oriented, competitive curriculum.

OUR HIGH PERFORMANCE GROUPS: These groups focus on an advanced training structure that has program commitments that allow each athlete the opportunity to reach their competitive potential.  These groups are:



  1. All returning swimmers need to complete registration by September 6. Please consult your coach for appropriate training group placement.
  2. Fees for Nu Wave High Performance swimmers include three components: a non-refundable registration fee, annual (or monthly) dues, and a minimum Swim-a-thon fundraising obligation. In addition, depending on a swimmer's activities, there may also be certain merchandise, meet, and travel costs or fees.
  3. A non-refundable annual registration fee is required for Tidal Wave, Cyclone, Tsunami, Senior, and National training groups. This fee includes USS registration, swim cap, team shirt, and certain fixed costs incurred by the team in handling a swimmer. Annual registration fees must be paid upon registration.
  4. Nu Wave is a year-round swim club committed to paying coaches and pool rental 12 months of the year. Therefore, dues are based on a twelve-month contract for High Performance Groups (Tidal Wave, Cyclone, Tsunami, Senior, and National).
  5. Our fiscal year is September 1- August 31.
  6. New swimmers to the program are allowed a two-week trial period.
  7. There are no annual payment refunds for withdrawal from the team after November 1, 2019, for High Performance Groups.
  8. There is an annual payment plan or monthly payment plan for High Performance Groups. There are 10 monthly payments made on the first of the month from October-June with the first month paid upon team registration. In the event a swimmer moves groups during the year, the monthly payment cost will be adjusted to reflect the group move. If the swimmer paid the annual payment, a prorated cost difference will be invoiced to the swimmer’s account.
  9. Team Unify provides families access to their private account to view swim history times, update contact information, review billing summary, and more.
  10. When completing the emergency contact information, please list the person and number you wish to be contacted first in the event of an emergency.
