PLEASE read this all and carefully! We will be back in our home pool at the River Falls High School, but it does not come without a couple challenges… Much of the rest of the building and surrounding grounds will be under construction.

  • We must park behind the building by the tennis courts and walk to the back doors to the school. Click here for a VERY rough map for those of you not sure what I am talking about :)
  • The observation deck will be unavailable. For anyone wishing to stay at the pool during practice, there will be a few chairs on the pool deck. If you do stay, please be respectful of coach & swimmer time and refrain from distracting the swimmers.
  • The inside track, commons, big locker rooms, etc will all be unavailable.
  • There is a lot of work outside the building. Please be cautious. Coming to the pool doors by the loop is off limits per school request as it is an active construction area.


Parade Help: We are in need of people to volunteer to help with this. The parade has been a great way to generate interest in our team. Having something fun & eye-catching while we walk the parade route is important. Please let me know ASAP if you are willing to help. Swimmers & adults 13+ are encouraged to help. We are looking at having a kick-off meeting on Monday at 6:30 for those interested. 2 points for volunteering.

Fish Baseball:

Date: Friday, June 14

Time: 6:45pm - ~10:30pm

Where: Hoffman Park at the First National Bank Field

What: Work Concessions & Sell 50/50 raffle (set up & clean up as well)

Who: Concessions - adults 18+ ONLY, Raffle - 10+

How Many: 6-8 adults, ~10 youth to adults

Volunteer Credit: 2 points

**Volunteers in the concession stand must be wearing a t-shirt. No tank tops allowed. Baseball caps must also be worn. I do still have RFSC baseball caps available if anyone wants to purchase one for $20. RFSC apparel in not required, but suggested.


We have a couple events happening this summer in which we would love to see RFSC shirts being worn with pride! The Fish baseball game next week, the RF Days Parade, swim meets, and possibly another Fish game later this summer are a couple. We will place a basic t-shirt order through River City Stitch. The shirts are a sport grey, cotton/poly blend (giving it a nicer feel than a 100% cotton shirt) with our two-color club logo on the front. They are $12.75 each.

If you are interested, please let me know sizes BEFORE this SUNDAY. This will get us the shirts in time for the game on Friday night. I will collect payment via cash or check during practice or at time of pick-up. Please be sure to indicate Youth or Adult with your size.


If you know anyone interested in swimming with us, registration for new swimmers to our team is on Monday night from 6:30-7:30pm. Help us spread the word by sharing or inviting people via out FaceBook event. Don't forget about the referral credit program!


  • Invite your friends and family to enjoy a baseball game on Friday ay 7:30pm! Tips at the concession stand as well as half the proceeds from the 50/50 drawing go to your club! I have a Facebook event created. Feel free to share to your timeline and invite people directly on the event page! Let's fill the place up!
  • RF Days Parade: Mark your calendars to join us walking in the parade on Friday, July 12! Detailed info will be coming out soon.
