New Swimmers!

Rainier Foothills Swim Team Offers four levels that benefit all types of swimmers. From novice to senior level, each RFST level is designed to make every swimmer as fast and as good of an athlete as possible. Below are the four groups offered by RFST.

 

Bronze: This level is for novice swimmers who have little to no experience in the water. The only requirements are that swimmers can complete 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke, and have a basic knowledge of butterfly and breaststroke. Typically any swimmer who has passed through a swim lessons program if ready for this level. Basic technique for all four strokes and all dives are thought at this level.

 

Silver: This level is for swimmers who have participated in bronze or completed a skills test that will qualify them for silver. This level is for swimmers who want to begin to be competitive in the sport. Technique will be expanded on and swimmers will be expected to show a commitment to become better, stronger, and faster swimmers through hard work at every practice. Swimmers are expected to attend most meets, especially challenge and divisional meets.

 

Gold: This program is for swimmers who have demonstrate consistent mastery of stroke fundamentals who are ready for more conditioning and competitive emphasis. Our coaching staff puts a specific focus on racing technique, endurance conditioning, race strategy, and goals attainment.

 

Platinum: This program is for swimmers who have demonstrate consistent mastery of stroke fundamentals who are ready for more conditioning and competitive emphasis. Our coaching staff puts a specific focus on racing technique, endurance conditioning, race strategy, and goals attainment.
