What are the UVRays?

UVRays, or Utah Valley Aquatics, is a year-round swim club. The aim of the team includes helping swimmers improve their swimming abilities, develop stroke technique, strength, and endurance.  UVRays hope that as swimmers participate, they will have fun, learn to swim better, make good friends, become more fit, and learn lifelong skills of setting goals, teamwork, and the value of hard work and dedication.
