SWIMMING

The RMC swim programs are aimed at helping our members develop a strong, efficient, stroke and add further fitness and power to the equation. The result is fitness, strength and speed.  Ample opportunity will be given for those more experienced swimmers to maximize their volume while new swimmers will only swim as much as they are comfortable with.  All participants will benefit from ongoing feedback from the coach.
