Summer Recreational Program
The Ahwatukee “Tidal Waves” is a summer recreational swim team for ages 6 to 18 years old. Participation in our swim program teaches the sport of swimming in a relaxed and fun environment! Our highly qualified coaches strive to make this a positive and memorable experience for all swimmers on the team.
Ages 6 - 8 Years
The goal is for all Tidal Wave swimmers to become proficient in all four strokes as well as learn sound workout habits.
Ages 10 - 12 Years
The focus is training the individual goals of each swimmer whether it's competitive, cross-training, or looking to join!
Ages 13 - 18 Years
The focus is to provide a summer non-competitive conditioning program to promote wellness as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle outside of the pool. Our highly qualified coaches strive to make this a positive experience for all swim team members!
Evaluations for new swimmers will be held on March 26, April 9, and April 23 (if needed). Registration for new swimmers can begin once the swimmer completes their evaluation and is approved by the coach.
