Animating Spline Curve points - possible?

Hey all - I’ve done a bit of googling, but I’m trying to animate points in a curve, I thought that would be pretty easy - it’s pretty common with most VFX packages, but I’m really struggling to find the appropriate documentation. --am I crazy, useless or barking up the wrong tree. Basically I’m tying to animate a wave coming into shore with a waterfall tool that’s built on splines, so I want to animate each point of the spline.
Any leads would be more than appreciated, since I’ve blown out my deadline already!
