Swim + Dive Teams

The Overland Park Waves Swim and Dive team is a recreational team for any child, 6-18, who wants to become a better swimmer.

The team provides coaching for two levels of swimmers: pre-competitive and competitive; and for divers. These teams should not be thought of as swim lessons, but rather as an opportunity to increase overall performance through hard work and practice.

The Waves summer program runs smoothly with the help of parent volunteers.
