Good Afternoon! We are looking forward to hosting our championship meet and a lot of information and requests will be coming out. Please take the time to read over everything so you do not miss important information.


  • Normal practice all week


  • STRM Meet Deadline: TONIGHT! We currently have 10 attending, let's get a few more!
  • Wednesday, January 30: Annual Team Meeting, 6:30pm in HS Library - Plan on attending.
  • RFSC Clothing Orders: Jan 5-27 ORDER HERE
  • OMNI Meet Deadline: Wednesday, Jan 28 - there is already 16 signed up. We are looking to hit at least 20!
  • Team Banquet: Monday, March 11


Sign Up is open to swim the meet. PLEASE read the information carefully as a championship meet has different requirements. Read Info & Declare Here.

Information was sent out earlier this week about our home meet for the session. Please review the information carefully. ALL novice, age group, pe-senior & senior families are required to volunteer for 2 position (each one on their own sign up line). We would like to see all volunteers in a RFSC shirt! This is a perfect time to place an order from our River City Stitch order. We do not get any percentage back on orders so we can provide you with the lowest possible prices.


Swimmers are getting to practice earlier and earlier. Please let your swimmers know to not come into the pool until 5:45 for the 6pm practice. The high school team has practice and we need to respect their space. Also, Coaches get there a few minutes early and need time to prepare for the night before being on deck to supervise children.


Many of the team members are getting a suit from swim outlet that is pretty cool while we are on our team suit search. If you would like to get one follow these steps to check it out:

  • This is the link to our SwimOutlet.com Store.
  • Be sure you see the banner at the top indicating you are supporting RFSC.
  • Search for the Waterpro Lightning and select the Green/Blue/Black one.
    • They are currently on sale as well!



Winter is here and it will inevitably snow a lot at some point. Once in a while we have to cancel practice due to weather. We will get info out as early as possible on Facebook and email. We also use texts. You can sign up for text messages through your account. Log in, navigate to your account information and look for "SMS". Enter your phone number and your carrier and then verify through the auto-text you get. You can have two numbers there. We do not send out many texts, but it is helpful to be able to reach you when we have to get a message out on short notice.

Have a great weekend everyone!
