Welcome all swimmers, divers and parents to the 2014 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. The information provided summarizes all of the important dates and information about the entire season. 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!  Sign up will be posted soon. Thank you!

Each Team member will receive one free swim cap (girls), with additional caps available for purchase, and may participate in activities such as Fun Fridays, Cedar Point and an 8 & Under outing as well as many other fun activities. If your child does not participate in the full season they will be prorated at $25 per practice/meet when regular season begins and is capped at the full cost of swim team ($100 – $130 or 4- 6 meets/practices).

When Are the Meets?

RC is in the “A” league this season with three home meets and two away meets. (See the Swim and Dive Schedule below).  Diving meets are usually held on Friday evenings, 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.
