RUTLAND RECREATION SWIMMING PROGRAMS
Activity Number 235521
Head Coach: Barb Marshall Assistant Coach: Melissa Patterson
ALL SWIM TEAM ACTIVITIES WILL AGAIN BE HELD AT RUTLAND TOWN’S NORTHWOOD POOL IN 2016. PLEASE NOTE THAT NORTHWOOD POOL IS NOT HEATED. Practices are Monday through Friday mornings. Swim meets will be held in the evenings on Tuesdays and some Saturdays. The District Meet will be held this year at Northwood Pool on Sunday July 30th. The State Meet will be held at UVAC on August 6th & 7th.
Those who practice regularly will swim in meets. Swim Team has an approximate ratio of 1:20. The focus is on endurance, improving strokes, instilling a love for competitive swimming and having fun. Critical to the swim team experience is the involvement of parents. When you sign up your child you sign up yourself to help at meets, a meet has to have parent involvement!! Volunteer for a minimum of 4 out of 7 meets and receive a $50 refund at the end of the season.
