Swim Team

Children and teens who love to swim and want to enhance their skill set are encouraged to join the Summer Break Waves Swim Team.   The team is designed to convey an understanding and appreciation for the fundamental skills involved in swimming, while providing a competitive atmosphere.  It stresses sportsmanship, respect, participation, self-discipline, and most of all … FUN and FRIENDSHIP!

ABOUT US

Consisting of swimmers ages 4 to 14, the Summer Break Waves Swim Team led by Head Coach Garland Wilson provides a comprehensive swim program that lends to friendly competition within the Suburban Swim League.  Enrollment for the swim team and the call out meeting will be held in the Spring of 2020, prior to Memorial Day.  In addition to the Summer Break Waves, the Suburban Swim League consists of five additional swim clubs based out of Gray Eagle, Windermere, River Glen, Avalon, and Plum Creek.  All swim meets within the league will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 5:00 pm.  Swimmers are expected to arrive at all home meets at 3:45 pm and all away meets at 4:15 pm.
