Who Are The WAVES

The Wedgewood Waves, member of the Suburban Swim League, is a fun, inclusive, and competitive swim team for all swimmers ages 4-18. Our goal is to create an environment where every swimmer, regardless of ability or experience, is able to have a positive experience while improving himself or herself both in and out of the water.

We value ourselves as an amazing team with awesome parents/guardians!  Check out below the opportunities you have to volunteer!  It takes all of us for the season to run!
