The RAC Varsity team is broken down into several training groups: White, Red, Bronze, Blue and High School. Swimmers train 4-6 days per week, depending on what training group they are assigned to. They are placed into training groups based on a combination of age and skill level. Training includes both in-water and dry land practice.
RAC is a member of two swimming leagues: the Suburban Aquatic League and Mid-Atlantic Swimming (USA swimming). Suburban Aquatic League meets take place on Saturdays from November through February. USA meets take place on weekends from September through March. It is assumed all swimmers will attend SAL meets, unless they notify a coach in advance. USA meets are optional, and require positive sign-up. They are strongly recommended, particularly for swimmers 10 and over. The Fall/Winter season ends with SAL Championships and Middle Atlantic Championships in February and March, respectively. The full season runs September through March. Fall and Winter are not offered as separate sessions, and the weeks cannot be pro-rated.
