About Tidalwaves


Established in 1970, the Tidalwaves Swim Team is a community of athletes, coaches, and parent volunteers who are dedicated to providing high-quality swim instruction and a competitive team experience to youth aged 5 - 18 in Larkspur and Corte Madera, CA. We promote the ideals of good sportsmanship, fair play, self esteem, achievement, and team spirit to participants of ALL ABILITIES.

Tidalwaves competes in the Marin Swim League, a summer league dedicated to providing and preserving quality amateur competitive swimming with a competition season that runs from February to early July. Registration for this season typically begins the first week of January. We also offer practice and conditioning opportunities in the fall and winter months. 

We are a family-oriented program offering children valuable experience in self-discipline and healthy competition.  We strive for an atmosphere in which all swimmers can maximize their individual swimming potential without undue pressure. The coaching staff, under the guidance of Head Coach Marie McSweeny, focuses on positive feedback, fun, discipline, and what is best for the kids in the long term. They want every swimmer to see the power and satisfaction that comes from working towards personal bests and to apply those life skills to everything they do, in or out of the pool.
