Welcome to all of our new swimmers and families that joined our team on Monday! We are happy to have you with us. Information for the week is as follows…


  • Reminder! Novice & Age Group practice from 6-7pm on Friday nights.
  • We will be working on some more volunteering activities and let you know ASAP. I Could use another person to help with some parade preparation things. Let me know if you are interested.
  • Continue to park in the back of the building by the tennis courts.
  • Feel free to bring your swimmer to the pool deck and head out during their practice if you would like. No need to stay at the pool if you would rather run an errand.


MAAC will be hosting a swim camp in Menomonie on August 5-7 led by a college coach from Iowa. It will be 9am-4pm each day with multiple swim sessions a day as well as discussions and dry land. $150 and registration is due by June 20. Please see the attached image for more details. If interested, print and send directly to MAAC. 


  • Tomorrow, June 14: Join us at the River Falls Fighting Fish baseball game. Game starts at 7:30pm. RFSC will be working the concession stand and selling 50/50 raffle tickets. This is going to be a nice fundraiser for the team, so bring your friends & family to support us. Wear your RFSC shirts! I have baseball caps available for $20 in the office. I am only available on Friday from 10:30-11am & 6-6:30pm.
  • Make Signs for Parade, July 3: We will decorate posters and materials for the River Falls Day Parade at the pool from 9-11am! All swimmers are welcome to join us for a fun morning of decorating, music, and snacks. We will break the swimmers down into teams to have a competition for best poster design, winning team earn a day to write their own practice for the entire team! Sign up on the website.
  • RF Days Parade, July 12: We will be walking the parade route Friday night. Parade line-up is usually around 5:30pm. We would love to have a huge group of swimmers and their families walking with us! Children 11 and younger must have a responsible adult walking with them. Sign Up on the website.


For those who ordered shirts last week, I will be picking them up tomorrow afternoon as soon as they are ready. I will bring them to the pool at 6pm and to the baseball game at 6:45pm. If you have not paid yet, please bring exact cash or check with you.


I will be on a family vacation next week. There will not be suits for sale next week as the coaches will be busy coaching :) We will resume the sale when I get back. I will be checking email occasionally, but not often.

We hope to see many of you tomorrow night at the game with your friends & family!
