SafeSplash Wave® Program

(Swim Team Conditioning)

The SafeSplash Wave® program is an endurance, strength, and swim team prep program that takes swimmers who already have knowledge of the competitive swimming strokes and want to refine their swimming skills. The Wave program is broken up into 3 skill groups based on both physical conditioning and current knowledge of the strokes in accordance to USA Swimming standards and the SafeSplash curriculum. The program includes a set workout with an out of water coach whose primary goal is to mimic an experience one would have on a recreational swim team.  Since prior knowledge of the competitive strokes is required, stroke technique is coached, but is not the primary focus of the Wave.

Each one hour practice is managed based on one of three skill levels (see below). Our top notch coaches will help your swimmers build endurance and prep to join their local swim team.

The Wave Requirements

  1. The child/children must be 7 years of age.
  2. The child/children must be a level 6 in the SafeSplash curriculum.
  3. If your child/children are younger than 7 or in a lower level, they will need to pass a swim test.
  4. This swim test is done on their first day by The Wave instructor.
