The YMCA WAVE Swim Team is an age group swimming program that focuses on all of our swimmers developing their abilities in a competitive swimming program that stresses overall growth, both personally and athletically, in a safe environment. We actively promote the four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility as our foundation. This enables our members to develop in a competitive team environment that will give them the skills necessary to be successful in swimming and in life.
Swimmers compete on local, New England, and national levels based on their ability. They learn daily about team spirit and setting personal goals.
This program is open to all swimmers between the ages of 5 and 18 who can swim 25 yards of at least one competitive stroke. A two-week "free trial" period is available for any new team members.
