Redlands Swim Team is a year-round competitive swim program that offers instruction and training for swimmers of all levels and abilities. RST is committed to promoting the sport of swimming, because of its potential to help individuals achieve excellence, not just in sports, but in life.
Swimming helps develop high quality aerobic endurance, flexibility, coordination, and muscle strength, thus building a strong foundation for a lifetime of good health.
Being part of a swim team fosters self-discipline, self-confidence, responsibility, perseverance, good sportsmanship, and teamwork. These traits can produce world-class citizens, as well as world-class athletes! Swimmers learn to strive for excellence, and to face challenges with courage. And they come to understand that if they do their very best, then there are no failures.
Many close friendships have had their beginnings at our pools, not just between swimmers, but between their families as well. Becoming involved with a swim team can also promote closeness within the family unit, as parents commit to helping swimmers achieve their goals.
