 Summer time also swim outdoors in open water - weather permitting
  • usually in Naperville at Centennial Beach on Monday & Wednesday at 6 p.m. Centennial is open if the air temp is above 65 degrees on the Weather Channel.  If you are not sure if we are having practice - call the beach & see if it is open.

 Winter time join an optional training trip to warm places like Key West, Aruba and Bermuda.


Swim practices are one of three levels:

   1. Beginner   2. Intermediate   3. Advanced

Competition - optional

Competing in Masters Swimming or Triathlons is encouraged but is not required.  With over 200 swimmers, we are usually represented at most Illinois meets.  At least one of the nine Waves coaches attends these meets.
