The 2023 Swim and Dive season has three home meets and two away meets. WISC Schedules can be seen on the WISC Website. All diving meets are held on Friday evenings (July 6th meet will be on Thursday), and swimming meets are Saturday mornings. The dual meet season culminates at the end of six weeks with a WISC, the “Washtenaw Inter-club Swim Conference” Championship. Each individual swimmer/diver may compete in the Championship if s/he has competed in 2 dual meets during the season. WISC Championships do not have time cut offs. Everyone is encouraged to participate! There will be a special award for championship participation. An end of the year banquet and all-night party will take place on Friday, July 28th, 2023.
Swim and Dive Team
Home of the Raccoons
The swimming and diving team is available to all Racquet Club members under 18. 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. Members can sign up here – TBD
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, and special events, to name a few. Do not worry, it’s a fun and a great way to meet other parents and the kids from RC! Thank you!
If you are new to the Swim & Dive team, or would like a refresher, we are having an informational meeting just for you! Join us on (tentative date) Wednesday, June 14th from 6-7 pm. This is a chance to meet the coaches, learn how meets work, and find out what is expected from parents and participants. A great opportunity to ask questions about making the most of the season!

Swim and Dive Coaches
We ask 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 be able to participate in swim team activities, and may be able to participate in swim meets.
We will be offering a couple days for your kids to get evaluated by our highly qualified staff. Evaluations will take place from 5:30 pm – 6:15 pm on Wednesday, June 7th and Thursday, June 8th. Sign up for evaluations here.
