WAVE Swim Team Trial

Posted by YMCA on September 12, 2014


Does your son or daughter enjoy being in the pool?  Are you looking for a fun and safe activity for your child that would allow them to learn the importance of teamwork, goal setting, and sportsmanship?  The La Crosse YMCA Swim Team (The WAVE) is offering a free two-week trial for all interested children (ages 6 – 18) beginning in September.


The fall/winter swim season will begin in September. We will be offering a two-week trial to new swimmers at that time, which allows them an opportunity to try competitive swimming before committing to the full season.


The WAVE Swim Team strives to teach swimmers the importance of working together towards a common goal. What separates swimming from other sports is the unique meshing of the value of individual goals within the larger team. With five different training groups offered on the WAVE Swim Team, each individual can progress at their pace while helping the team as well.


In addition to the daily practices, the Wave Swim Team competes at several swim meets each month, giving swimmers an opportunity to demonstrate their skills, and enjoy the comradery of their fellow teammates. Swim meets vary from local meets for newer swimmers to national caliber meets.
