The Wyngate Waves Summer Swim Team is available to residents in good standing with the Wyngate HOA and non-residents of the Wyngate subdivision located in Woodstock, Georgia. The Waves swim program is designed to enhance both swimming and racing skills while having fun in a relaxed "summertime" environment.
The coaches are certified by the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) and/or the American Red Cross. The Wyngate Waves are part of the Atlanta Swim Association (ASA) and must abide by their rules and bylaws. Check out their website for more information: Atlanta Swim Association
A swimmer must be at least 5 years old of as of May 31st of the current year to swim in the meets. The swimmers will also be placed into the Age Group based upon their age on June 1st of the current year.
All swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool (25 yards) unassisted, no matter the age.
All new swimmers, or those not yet certified with our team, need to be certified. 5-year-olds don't get certified and they are required to do in water starts.
All swimmers age 6 & up do get certified. Dive certifications must be done for anyone who is new to the team regardless of whether you swim somewhere else during the year. All kids ages 6-18 have to be dive certified to be able to dive in summer swim meets in Cherokee County, GA.
If your child does not get dive certified, they will have to do in water starts (one hand on wall, push off wall at the start whistle).
The Cherokee County Aquatics Center offers Dive Certifications for a fee. We will offer them to all swimmers during practice times (TBD) at the beginning of the season.
Practices and Meets:
The Summer Swim season is from May to June. Practices are for approximately 30-45 minutes, Monday through Friday. During May (while school is in session) the practice times are from 4:00pm to 6:15pm and in June (after school is out) the practice times are from 8:00am to 10:30am. The swimmers are placed in age groups which will be used to determine their specific practice schedule.
We typically have 4-5 Swim Meets during the season with 2-3 being home meets at the Wyngate Pool. The away meets are at pools in other neighborhoods throughout Cherokee County but usually in the Towne Lake area. The meets are ALWAYS on Thursday nights, and begin at 6:00pm (warmups begin at 5:00 or 5:30) and usually end by 10:00pm.
Our team is run by parent volunteers. We ask that all swimmers' parents volunteer to work jobs (Job Information) at a minimum of THREE meets in a season. Also to avoid increasing costs or the need for fundraisers we ask that each family bring a minimum of THREE concession items for the HOME meets to fill our concession stand (Concessions Information)
