Open for New Members

4/2/22 - 6/10/22

45 Members

The CASCADES RAPIDS SWIM TEAM is open to Cascades community resident's ages 5-18 years of age who can swim 25 meters unaided with their face in the water (i.e. forward crawl/freestyle). Our well-credentialed coaching staff will teach and develop proper stroke technique in freestyle, backstroke, starts, turns, finishes, as well as educate on the effective use of swimming equipment. Butterfly and breaststroke will be introduced based on swimmer's abilities. Practices will be structured to provide a fun yet instructional workout for the beginner swimmer and a more challenging program focused on speed, endurance, and racing techniques for the more advanced swimmers. While this is a developmental program, the Rapids should not be considered a substitute for swim lessons. Lifeguards will be on duty and safety will be stressed at all times.

Details for the 2022 swim season are in process. The Cascades Rapids compete against neighboring community swim teams through the Colonial Swim League

Cost to register is $175 per swimmer until April 24th. The family fundraising fee has been eliminated. Instead, Rapids are encouraged to participate in the team's fundraisers.
