SC Swim Team 1 030

For the first time Waterworks will be continuing our Swim Teams through the summer months making the program available year round!  Our Swim Team is a great way for children to work on technique and conditioning while having fun with other children.  Our coaches focus on stroke refinement, speed and endurance. 

Group One Swim Team meets every Tuesday and Thursday 4:00-4:40, and is great for children between the ages of five and eight years old. 

Group Two Swim Team Meets Monday through Thursday 6:00-7:00 and is great for children nine years and older. 


You may attend as many or as few practices as you wish since the charge will be a monthly fee. 

In order to participate, swimmers must pass a swim test or be approved by their current swim instructor.  If you would like more information on our Swim Team please stop by our front desk to pick up a flyer or speak with one of our Customer Service Representatives.

It’s Swim Competition time again and Waterworks will be trying out a new start time this Saturday May 16th.  Instead of the usual 1pm start time, we will be commencing our meet at 11am and anticipate it to last until approximately 1pm.

This competition is also going to be extra special because we will be throwing Gold Dollar Coins into the water for our end of the meet Coin Toss!  For those of you who haven’t been to a swim meet, we always end the competition with our popular Coin Toss. Swim meet participants get to jump in the pool and gather as many coins as they can. All coins the children find, they get to take home. We are grateful to Angus Smith Construction for sponsoring this Coin Tosses and giving the children something extra special to look forward to. 

 If your child would like to participate in the competition please come by the front desk and one of our Customer Service Representatives will get you registered.

Who Wants to Go on a Treasure Hunt?

May 7, 2009

treasure-chest-2-005Many of you have seen children picking toys out of our large treasure chest that decorates our front entryway and have asked when will my child be able to pick out a toy?  At Waterworks we have a rewards system in place for our students to keep them motivated in their swim classes.  When a child performs exceptionally well in a class or finally masters and completes a skill level, their instructor will give them a certificate. They can then present this certificate to one of our Customer Service Representatives at the front desk and we let them hunt for a toy in our treasure chest.  Each child gets to pick out one toy to take home with them.  The children always get very excited when they get to pick out a special prize.  Not only is it fun for the children, but we feel it is important to give them positive feedback for their hard work which, in turn, motivates them to continue to improve.  Our level improvement certificates also tell the parents what new skills their child is now capable of and keeps them updated with their child’s progress.
