RYD swimmers frequently qualify to compete in regional and national level competitions, with many continuing their swimming careers at the collegiate level.
The RYD Swim Team provides swimmers of all ages and abilities the opportunity to excel in the sport of swimming. Our Coaching Staff provides swimmers with the opportunity to excel through a structured, challenging, and supportive environment that cultivates the spirit, mind, and body. We believe that success is the result of a constant pursuit of excellence in stroke technique and rigorous training. Our goal is to help swimmers develop a life-long appreciation for the sport of competitive swimming and learn lessons from their involvement that can be implemented into all facets of their lives.
