2014 Season is Almost Here!
Work has already begun to prepare for the new swim and dive season. We have begun to change the website with updated information for the season and registration will be open the week of April 22nd. This year the Rapids swim team has moved down to division 7 in the NVSL which should make this a very competitive and fun season. Several pieces of information have already been posted on the website but we ask that you check frequently as some pieces of the schedule items are still being determined. The calendar is posted so please check it out.
See everyone at the pool!
This 14 page document decribes the NVSL, our A Meets & B Meets, all the strokes & events, and what a DQ is and how they work for each stroke and lots more. It's written for new parents, but has good info for returning parents or swimmers who want to understand more about how the swim team works.
