WELCOME - TO THE WAVE SWIM CLUB 2020-2021 SHORT COURSE SEASON REGISTRATION 

The 2020-2021 Wave Short Course Swim Season will officially begin in September.  Registration will remain open as long as we have open spots.  This season will end at the end of February.  Before swimmers can hop into the pool for their first practice of the season they must be registered online with Wave. This page is the first part of the Wave Swim Club electronic online registration process.  The online registration process is simple for both new and returning members. Once you are registered, you'll get access to your own private family account.  This account will enable you to easily see your account balance, pay your bill, sign-up for swim meets, volunteer to help, view swim times, maintain your own contact information, and more.  

IMPORTANT: If you have a returning swimmer and they do not show up when you login to register, please contact us.  This will help avoid creating a duplicate account.

THE INITIAL REGISTRATION FEE 

All Wave Swimmers are required to be members of USA Swimming.  USA Swimming is the national governing body of our sport.  They oversee the development of not only our youngest novice swimmers but also those swimmers who go on to represent our country at the Olympic level.  The fee billed during registration includes a USA Swimming Membership. All USA Swimming Membership fees are non-refundable.

THE FAMILY CLUB INVOLVEMENT REQUIREMENT  - THE FAMILY CLUB INVOLVEMENT REQUIREMENT WILL BE WAIVED THIS SEASON DUE TO COVID-19 

Usually each family is required to work 12 hours during the short course season in order to support the club.  Accounts that do not meet the requirement are then assessed a penalty fee.  The Board voted to waive the penalty this season due to a lack of opportunities for families to work.  We will need volunteers this season.  If you are interested please reach out to the club Volunteer Coordinator. 

WAVE TRAINING GROUPS & MONTHLY SWIM DUES

Below is a list of the training groups practicing with the WAVE this coming season. Swimming fees & dues for each group are listed below.  Monthly dues are based on the amount of practice time each group is allocated during the season.  Coaches will place swimmers into their training groups.  Training group placement is based on age and ability.  Registration will be first come first serve.  This season there will be a limit of 25 swimmers in each pod.  There will also be some changes due to Covid19 including the requirement to wear face masks in and out of the pool area.  Also the main locker rooms are not open; so swimmers must come ready to swim.  Click here to view our Covid19 Safety Plan.
