Year Round Swim Club
Swim club is designed to improve a child’s swimming technique, help increase their speed, encourage sportsmanship and foster a love for the sport of swimming. All practices are held at the ARC-D indoor pool. 6-week sessions provide swimmers the flexibility to participate in other sports and activities throughout the school year.  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.

Summer Swim Team

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 5 meets throughout the summer in a recreational environment. This program is a great introduction into the competitive swimming world.  Summer swim team meets at the indoor pool at ARC Downtown, but when the outdoor pools are open, we utilize both Downtown and South locations.
