STORM Swim Team 

Winter 2023

We are excited to announce our Winter STORM options. Our official Winter season will begin on January 9 with the Age Group team while the RCHS team is finishing their season. At the conclusion of the RCHS season, we will add Purple Team to the schedule in late February.
To bridge the gap between the end of the fall session (November 18) and the holidays, we are also offering an optional add on for our Age Group swimmers who want to keep practicing between holidays. From November 28 to December 15, Age Group swimmers can participate in the Monday-Thursday 5:30 practices for a fee of $75.   Please note that in order to hold this offering we will need at least 10 swimmers participating. 
**Optional Add On for Age Group Swimmers only ***   November 28 - December 15: Monday - Thursday from 5:30 - 6:30 pm (Cost per swimmer, $75) 

Winter Schedule 
Age Group   (January 9 to March 23): Monday - Thursday from 5:30 - 6:30 pm (Cost per swimmer $250)
Purple Team (February 27 - April 6): Tuesday & Thursday from 5:30-6:15pm (Cost per swimmer $165) 

A note about USA Registration: USA Swimming now requires registration through their own website. As a reminder, USA Swimming registration is the annual cost that swimmers pay to participate in USA Swimming sanctioned meets and be insured for their participation as a member of STORM. Due to this change, starting back in the fall we removed the USA fee from our STORM registration process. You will now need to renew and add your swimmers directly using USA Swimming's website.   We require USA Swimming registration for all swimmers who participate in Age Group & Advanced Age Group. Purple Team swimmers only need a valid USA registration if they plan to compete in swim meets. 
Age group swimmers who register for the Winter Season will need to either renew or create a new registration with USA swimming before practices begin in January.   Swimmers over the age of 12 or who wish to participate in championship level meets should select Premium registration. Swimmers 12 and under and those who do not wish to participate in championship meets may choose the Flex option.

We look forward to seeing you at the pool!
