About UVRays 


Utah Valley Aquatics, Inc., or UVRays, is a year-round swim club. The team is registered with USA Swimming, which is the national governing body of swimming in the United States. This means we function under the rules and regulations of USA Swimming. 

Utah Valley Aquatics was created in late-2004 when the Springville Seals Aquatic Team (SSAT) and the Provo Aquatic Club (PAC) merged under the direction of Head Coach Shari Skabelund.  In August 2021, the membership of the Orem Timpanogos Aquatics Club (OTAC) voted dissolved and transfered it's assets to UVRays.  Many OTAC swimmers and coaches also joined UVRays at that time.   

The mission of the team is to foster the development of each swimmer's ability, desire, and discipline to achieve her or his potential in and out of the pool. UVRays have fun, swim fast, enjoy friendships, and learn lifetime skills while setting goals, working hard, and participating in one of the finest individual and team experiences available.
