Parents are a key part of the team. They are expected to work one of many interesting volunteer jobs during each home meet. Swim meets are arranged by event, age, and gender. Meets follow the North Central Illinois Swim Conference order of events.

The Antioch Waves Swim Team is a non-profit organization in Antioch, Illinois that provides competitive swim experience for local youth ages 5-18. Our swimmers live in Antioch, Salem, Trevor, Spring Grove, Lake Villa, Lindenhurst, and nearby communities. They enjoy a great summer activity that blends active exercise, fun, socializing, and a mix of team and individual challenges and goals.

Registration is first come, first serve, with priority given to existing Waves team members. Team members must be between age 5 and 18 and must be able to swim 25 yards, unassisted, to participate.

All practices and home meets are held at the Antioch Aqua Center. Competition is structured by age level (8 & under, 9‑10, 11‑12, 13‑14, 15+), with separate events for boys and girls. A swimmer's age as of June 1st determines his/her age class.

No tryouts are required. Practices are M-F mornings beginning the first weekday after the final day of school (Districts 33 and 34). Swimmers are expected to practice a minimum of two times per week to swim in meets. The season ends in late July. Meets are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and some weekends. We swim rain or shine (but not in thunderstorms!).
