Who are the Wavemakers?

The Wavemakers swim team is open to swimmers ages 5-18 that are members of Lakota Hills Swim Club.  Beginners are welcome and encouraged to join!  For safety reasons, we ask that members can swim at least one length of the pool in any fashion.  Our team has so much fun learning the sport of swimming, bonding with teammates of all ages, and cheering each other on.  We kick-off our season on May 22nd with a “Meet the Coaches” event from 4-7 at the pool.  We will have more information on this event soon but weather permitting, the team is invited to participate in a special free swim following a brief meeting.  We are a member of the Tri-County Swim League, one of the oldest and largest swim leagues in the Cincinnati area.  Most of our coaches are past or present Wavemaker's swimmers themselves.

What does swim team entail?

Starting May 23rd, practice is offered Monday-Friday after school, transitioning to morning practice after Memorial Day.   Practice is a time for swimmers to learn the strokes, starts, turns, and perfect their technique, strength and speed.  Attending as many practices per week as possible is encouraged.  More information on our weekly meets will be coming out soon but these are generally held on Tuesday evenings.  The Championship is scheduled to be at Miami University on July 29-30th.  All swimmers are encouraged to participate in the fun and excitement of championships.

Parents are required to volunteer at meets as part of team membership (or be charged $150 at the end of the season).  Most opportunities for volunteering require no experience.  Officiating, however, requires certification and the team is always looking for parents to assist as officials.  Please contact us if you are interested.

Why join?

Become a stronger swimmer, stay in shape during the off-season of other sports, have a summer routine, make new friends and have fun!
