Nu Wave Swim Club

Nu Wave Swim Club offers professional technique instruction and training. The program is divided into smaller practice groups based on requirements and expectations.  The requirements and expectations are listed below for each group and will take affect starting at the beginning of the 2013 Short Course season. 

The Progression of each swimmer is based on meeting the expectations, time standards, age and attendance requirements.  Three of the four (expectations, time standards, age, and attendance) need to be met in order to progress if the swimmer is not of age.  No child will be moved during a season.  All moves will be made at the beginning of the season when needed. Ultimately, all decisions are determined by the Head Coach of Nu Wave Swim Club and based on the individual swimmer.
