LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL
Hello to everyone who is part of or wants to join this crazy party
we call Rapids swimming. The Rio Rapids swim team is a high-quality
swim program offered to participants ranging from ages 4 to 18.
Fun, friendship, team spirit, fitness and healthy competition,
coupled with a focus on the fundamentals of swimming, are highly
emphasized. It is our mission to establish a postitive environment
in which children are encouraged to work hard and improve their
skills while building self-esteem and
We take a hands-on approach here at Rio, and our coaching staff is
in the water working with your children everyday. Our coaches are
fun, enthusiastic, and love to have good times with all swimmers
and parents. Make friends with your coaches and feel free to
contact any of them at any time for any reason. We are here to
serve but graciously accept bribes of food, Kings tickets or just
smiles to keep us going through the season.
We want all of you to feel like a part of this family and to help
out in making this family work. Parent involvement is vital to our
success because, with the support of club management, parent
volunteers conduct and run all swim meets and other
swim-team-related activities. So jump right in and lend us a hand.
It will make your experience much more enjoyable. But, its not all
work and no play. We have a number of social events such as the
parent cocktail party, pep rally with DJ and dancing, summer
barbecues, and karaoke night that help inspire our wild sides. The
people who are a part of this program are just darn good people.
You might suddenly end up with too many friends and and incredibly
busy social life!
We swim fast and every child who swims here gets faster. We
guarantee that, if your children come to practice, they will not
only improve their technique but their own personal times as well.
