Waves of Wilmington

Foundations

About

WOWʼs Foundations program is geared towards younger swimmers who donʼt yet have the necessary skill, background, and/or time commitment for a year-round competitive swim team. The program will focus on the fundamentals of swimming, with each level building on the previous one to ensure swimmers are swim meet ready once they make the leap to the competitive side of the pool.
