High 5 is about making a positive difference in the lives of our members and in the health of our neighboring communities. We fill needs, help others achieve goals, and become part of their extended social circle. We give back and reach out, directly connecting people, programs, events, and experiences for the common good.

Blue Wave – Swim Team

Founded in 1963, Blue Wave is one of the oldest and longest running competitive aquatic programs in the state. Blue Wave swimmers have been successful in local, state, regional, national and international competitions, and several have participated across a total of six Olympic Games (Barcelona in 1992, Atlanta in 1996, Sydney in 2000, Athens in 2004, Beijing in 2008, and London in 2012).

Among them, triple Olympic Gold medalist Brooke Bennett, Olympic Silver medalist Maritza Correia, and two-time El Salvadorian Olympian Golda Marcus are all proud Blue Wave alumni.​

Masters Swim

The Masters Swim program at High 5 is intended for adults who want to have a structured swimming workout with other adults. We are registered with United States Masters for those who want to compete; however, competition is not required. This is a great group for people who are training for triathlons or for adults who used to swim competitively and want to stay in shape

Taking a Deep Dive into High 5

Host facility for the Team Colwill Dive Squad, we’re proud to have been selected as a national training site for the finest amateur divers and prospective Olympic athletes in the United States.

Our springboard diving program is focused on offering a range of training levels from beginner to expert. The beginner level is offered in Tuesday/Thursday sessions, while the Junior Olympic (JO) level is offered in Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday sessions. In both, new or experienced divers will find ways to improve their basic techniques, strengthen areas of weakness, and enhance and develop their abilities across all disciplines.
