Swimmers must still meet the minimum skill requirements for the team, therefore any swimmer who has never been a part of a competitive swim team before must have a swim evaluation completed by the Director/Head Coach prior to registration. Please contact Sue Morse at SusanMorse@waysideathleticclub.com to schedule this evaluation.
There will be 6 single day in-person swim meets this season each will last no more than 4 hours (most done in under 3 hours). The League does plan to hold the championship meet this season, however, due to the COVID pandemic, the venue has not yet been decided upon. A swimmer must attend and take part in at LEAST 3 OF THE 6 MEETS this season in order to attend the championship meet in March 2022.
Wayside Waves take part in the Metro Swim League for the winter months. This league is made up of 10 area recreational, age-group swim teams.
Swimmers are required to compete in 5 of the 8 dual meets during the season. The League hosts a Championship Meet at Boston University in early March to culminate the season. However, due to the COVID pandemic the Championships have been cancelled the past 2 seasons.
During the winter of 2020-2021, we did only virtual swim meets. We ran timed races during one week of practices each month, then submitted those results to the League president who then consolidated the results from all the teams and produced the League Meet results for each month. It was different, but at least we were swimming, having fun, and being safe.
The upcoming season, 2021-2022, has not yet been decided as to whether we will be having in-person meets inside or continue with the virtual meets. Please note that ALL OF THE COACHES want in-person meets, but we also want to run a safe, healthy season. We will be holding a coaches’ meeting soon to determine this and to put meets on the calendar. Information will be sent as soon as we have it.
