About Tidal Waves

Tidal Waves is a recreational summer swim team for all youth up to the age of 17.

This is a swim team, not a swim class. Your swimmer will learn and improve throughout the season but should be comfortable in the water and able to swim a recognizable stroke and lap in order to join.

We are based at the Bellevue Memorial Park Pool and swim outdoors Mon-Thurs evenings.

Tidal Waves is part of the North Hills Summer Swim League.
