RMSC is a year-round, United States of America Swimming (USAS) affiliated, age group and senior swim team. The team competes through Potomac Valley Swimming (PVS), which is our local swim committee (LSC) for USAS. RMSC offers a rewarding training and competitive experience to swimmers of all ability and interest levels through a schedule of flexible practice times.
Swimmers new to the program must attend a skill assessment and group placement evaluation at the pool of their choice the first week of practice. Coaches will assign practice groups depending on skill level. Newcomers may not begin to practice with their designated group until all registration forms have been completed and all fees have been paid in full. Entry into advanced level groups is available by coaches' invitation only. Those who participated in the program last year may register only for the group with which they practiced last year. No swimmer may change group assignment unless instructed by coach.
