Good Morning Team! The news is coming out a little early this week as I will be out of town through Sunday. We are in our championship swim season right now. Congrats to the swimmers who participated in the MACs meet last weekend. Good luck to those headed to Winona this weekend for MRCs and then to State the following 2 weekends!!


We are heading into the last two weeks of practice. Keep working hard! Watch your emails for changes to building entry! Thank you for being understanding. We are rolling with the construction as best as we can and are happy to be able to use our own pool through it all.

***Due to our MRCs meet on Friday night, there will be NO EVENING PRACTICE this Friday, July 25


The Red Wing Swim Club will be hosting a small, non-sanctioned swim meet in the evening on Wednesday, July 31.  Lets get a big group going down for this! Check out the details on the website and get signed up ASAP!


I have attached where we are at with volunteering so far. EVERY family with a swimmer in novice, age group, pre senior, senior MUST meet their volunteer requirement. Families signed up for the full spring/summer season are required to do 2 point of time. Families in the summer only portion of the season are required to complete 1 point. Volunteering not completed will be billed $50 per point not completed. Here are the remaining opportunities I have to fill your volunteering:

  • Lane Lines - 1 person - 1 point: We have 2 lanes that have been along the edge of the pool. These lines need to have the plastic floats taken off and put into totes. This will need to be done during practice sometime between July 22 - August 2.
  • Community Flyers - 5 people - 1 point each: I provide flyers with registration info to be hung around River Falls and surrounding communities. Each person hangs 10 flyers to complete their point. I have a Google Sheet I will provide access to be updated as you hang them so people are not spending time approaching businesses already asked. This will need to be completed between August 12-23.
  • Timers - 16 people - 1 point each: On Tuesday, August 27 the River Falls High School Girls team will host a home swim meet vs Tartan. Timing at high school meets is usually not a volunteer position, but being it is in the summer before our club season starts, we are making this one a volunteer spot (NOT for the fall requirement.)


Details for our fall season are being finalized this week. Watch your emails early next week for information on practice times, prices & roster advancements.

Thanks to everyone who joined us walking in the parade on Friday. It was a great group and a lot of fun!
