Welcome all swimmers, divers and parents to the 2018 Season!

The swimming and diving team is available to all Racquet Club members. RC Swim and Dive has a wonderful history and great tradition. Our mission is to instill the love of swimming and diving, teach excellent skills and sportsmanship, and encourage team camaraderie. We hope that you will support your kids in our mission and be involved with the program in any way you can. RC Swim and Dive relies on parent participation to make everything work. It is expected that if you have a child on the team you will volunteer to help out along the way. There are plenty of ways to volunteer; helping out with meets, Fun Fridays, special events, to name a few. Do not worry, it is fun and a great way to meet other parents and the kids from RC! Thank you!

Is your swimmer ready for swim team?

Join us on Tuesday, June 5th or Wednesday, June 13th from 4:30-5:30 pm for evaluations at the pool.
We are asking all new 8 and Under swimmers to attend an evaluation day to determine their placement in swim lessons or the swim team. We will evaluating several strokes and endurance to see what the best fit is for each swimmer. We want the best experience for your swimmer. If your child is placed in lessons, they will still be able to attend swim meets and participate in swim team activities. We are offering evaluations on Tuesday, June 5 and Wednesday June 13, from 4:30-5:30 pm. We’re looking forward to a fun summer!
