We also offer an outdoor pool with a cabana that is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Swim club is designed to offer competitive swimming on a local level during the school year. All practices are held at the ARC-D indoor pool. Sessions provide swimmers the flexibility to participate in other sports and activities throughout the school year. ARC Membership is required. Swimmers will be in the water two days to improve strokes, endurance and cardio strength. Goal setting and self motivation are emphasized. Dry land exercises and drills are included in the program to increase strength.
ARC Swimmers are in for a treat! You are now being coached by a former Olympic athlete! Our new coach, Mary Montgomery, an Asheville native, competed in the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany; coming in 6th place at the age of 15! May then went on to the Pan-American games to win a silver medal in the 800 meter freestyle. We feel very fortunate to have Mary as our ARC swim team coach! To sign up, please email email@example.com

During the summer, the swim team competes in the Blue Ridge Swim League against local clubs in the Asheville area. United States swimming rules apply during all training and meets. Swimmers are provided with the opportunity to participate in 6 meets throughout the summer in a recreational environment. This program is a great introduction into the competitive swimming world. The year round swim team meets at the indoor pool at ARC Downtown, but when the outdoor pools are open, we utilize both Downtown and South locations. ARC Club Membership is required.
