If you are new to Radnor Aquatic Club Developmental groups and are interested in signing up, please Contact Us.

Barracuda & Shark Groups

The Barracuda and Shark teams are RAC’s developmental group and feeds into RAC’s Varsity team. Groups will run in three sessions; Session I is September to October; Session II is November to December; and Session 3 will run January to February. Each session requires it's own registration.

Swimmers must be able to demonstrate an efficient free style and back stroke, as well as a level of knowledge and ability in the other strokes. Group goals are to continue learning and practicing the basics of all four strokes in a fun environment. Swimmers will also begin to learn and implement both practice and training skills.

The program is designed for swimmers needing additional stroke and technique work in order to be “meet-ready.” Swimmers participate in three practices per week. The season includes a fun meet at the end of each session where swimmers can see their progress in a atmosphere centered on Fun. Depending on progress achieved, swimmers may be offered a place on RAD’s varsity team. All swimmers are encouraged to sign up for Spring Stroke Clinics in April in order to continue their stroke development.

Piranha

Swimmers must be able to complete a full lap of free style unassisted.  Acceptance into the program will be at the coach’s discretion. Piranha’s group focus is to provide a fun learning experience where swimming skills and strokes will be introduced and practiced in small groups. The program is designed for swimmers needing basic stroke development. Swimmers participate in two practices a week.

The season includes a fun meet at the end of each session. Depending on progress achieved, Piranha swimmers may be offered a place in the Barracuda team. All Piranha swimmers are encouraged to sign up for Spring Stroke Clinics in April in order to continue their stroke development.
