Rockbridge Storm is a club swimming team affiliated with USA Swimming. We offer instruction, training and competition for swimmers in the Rockbridge area.

Storm’s mission is to provide a quality swim program for swimmers of all ages and abilities by providing professional instruction in an innovative, goal-oriented environment. The coaching staff endeavors to teach, train and motivate swimmers to achieve their ultimate potential in swimming in the belief that this experience will prove valuable to them as they grow and develop.

Storm strives to instill an appreciation for personal accountability, self-motivation, goal setting and goal achievement in its swimmers. It is our belief that the process of achieving is as significant as the achievement itself.

The team competes in local and regional competitions sanctioned by United States Swimming Inc., the national governing body for amateur swimming.

Special notes: 

Practice days: We will continue to require that Purple Team, Novice, and Age Group swimmers select both the number of practice days per week AND the specific day(s) in order to be approved for registration. This will help us to better prepare for practices and ensure that we always have enough instructors for a productive workout. 

USA Registration: All swimmers must be registered to USA swimming either by Flex or by Premium membership. These fees are selected at the time of registration. Your registration will not be approved without payment for USA fees. This cost covers your swimmer and allows them to participate in swim meets! 

STORM T-Shirts: This year we will also include an option to pay for a STORM T-Shirt. Please look in the "Other Per Member Charges" Section where the USA fee are located. You may select to purchase a shirt for your swimmer here and also fill in their T-Shirt size on the registration form. We will confirm sizes prior to ordering.
