Squad Info

  • RAC’s Fitness Group program is designed with the intention of providing the curriculum and atmosphere necessary for 13& Over swimmers to discover their own path within swimming whether that be competitive or fitness based.  

  • Swimmers may attend as many or as few meets and practices as they would like.

  • The group is designed to have swimmers find a place in the sport as well as fill a valuable and recognized role within the club.

  • Fitness Group practice is offered 5 pool sessions and 2 dry land sessions per week on average.

Notes on training: The fitness swimmer is a positive and hard-working athlete for the RAC program as a whole. Swimmers in the fitness group are expected to perform to the highest standards. Fitness swimmers must have the desire to improve and strive for the highest level.  Decisions on movement will be taken depending on achievement of performance criteria, age and physiological stage of individuals concerned as well as training attitude. Ultimately all decisions and reviews will be made at the Coaching Staff discretion.
