Welcome to the Kanawha swim team! Kanawha has had a competitive swim team since 1955 and was a founding member of the James River Aquatic Club. The 2020 swim season will mark Kanawha's 65th year of competitive swimming. Today, the Kanawha swim team is a group of over 250 swimmers, ages 5-18 who practice and compete as a team in JRAC blue division. The team enjoys a 10 week season with practice beginning in late May, meets on Monday evenings in June and July and a final championship meet in late July.

KRA SWIM TEAM MISSION: To teach competitive stroke technique, turning and diving while also nurturing a love and enthusiasm for the sport of swimming. Our goal as a group is to learn lifelong swim and fitness skills, share in an enthusiastic, high energy team and make strong friendships for years to come.
