The 2021-2022 season was the first season for WAVE’s dual sport program – Junior Waves. WAVE athletes competed in swim meets in Ottawa, Belleville, and Toronto and water polo tournaments in Montreal and Toronto.
We’ve always believed that swimming is to water polo as skating is to hockey — they are intertwined in so many ways. Capital WAVE has worked hard with Swim Ontario and Ontario Water Polo to train our coaching staff in both sports to build our success as a dual-sport club.
WAVE is the only club in Ottawa that is an official swim club and water polo club. Look no further, this is where it all starts.
Junior WAVEs athletes must attend 90% of their practices. Practices are three times per week. Athletes must do swimming and water polo. The focus of practices will change from swimming to water polo and vice versa at the discretion of the coaching staff.
There are 2 levels at Junior WAVEs – A and B. All “A” athletes are expected to attend all swim meets and water polo tournaments – should they be invited.
The skills and ability of Junior WAVES A athletes does at times overlap with that of the competitive 13U program. Athletes may be promoted to the 13U competitive level at the discretion of coaches.
Athletes will be registered with Swim Ontario and Ontario Water Polo and can not be registered with any other club.
WAVE are the 11U Provincial Champions! WAVE outscored the opposition 93 – 2 over the tournament.
