(PRA) strives to be an area leader in amateur swimming. Founded in
1994 with 2 coaches and 32 swimmers, PRA has grown to include
more than 180 swimmers and 6 coaches. We would be
considered a Distance and Individual Medley team, even though the
VCC scores say other wise. We like to promote well rounded
swimmers in all 4 strokes. Our goal is to provide our
swimmers the chance to swim in college and beyond.
Since then we have produced 8 nationally ranked swimmers with
13 others achieving national top reportable times. PRA has
set 14 AMS records, 7
eastern zone all star meet champions, 8 swimmers and one relay
make Junior Nationals , and 3 swimmer has made the US Open and both
Long Course and Short Course National Championships, 2 swimmers
swam at the OW Nationals, and 1 NAG record holder in 2 events.
Numerous swimmers have participated in the Eastern Zone All-Star
meets. We continually increase the number of swimmers we send to
the Speedo Sectional Championships. Eight swimmers have qualified
for the Open Water Nationals. All the swimmers highest meets can be
found under the Who's Who tab. We have sent swimmers to the
AMS elite camp, eastern zone select camps, USA Swimming Distance
Camp, and USA Swimming Open Water National Select camp.
PRA prides itself on the quality of swimmers at all levels. We take
great delight in the fact that we offer one of the largest 8 and
under programs in the area. We continually rank in the 500 out of
7000 clubs in the nation.
In 15 years, our team moved from being a "B" and slower team to a
"BB" team. We will continue to work to offer the best opportunities
to our athletes and families. We look forward to the future and
appreciate what all the families of the past and present have done
to make our club a success.
