Take your marks! Beep!!! Do you swim in the summer? What about the winter? I swim in the winter on the Radnor Aquatic Club (RAC) team. There are eight groups: Piranha, Barracuda, Sharks, White, Red, Bronze, Blue, and High School.
I am in Red group and we have five practices a week. Wait what five practices! No! Only go the days that you can, I only go on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. There are also meets, which you aren’t required to go to, but they would like you to do some. Also, they want you to go to four practices but it’s fine if you can’t.

RAC is also a great club because they have very encouraging and understanding coaches and swimmers. RAC is fun whether you want to learn how to swim or get a faster time in the 200 butterfly. This is why many families chose RAC!
|Reece Brown||4th||Crowe||Red||“It is super fun when you swim with friends and the coaches are nice too.”|
|Logan Bernabeo||4th||Cook||Red||“I think RAC is a great environment for young swimmers who are still learning. The coaches are very nice and supportive. RAC splits us into groups by ability, not age. I like this because I can be with kids that are around the same speed as me.”|
|Nancy Wible||4th||Cook||Red||“RAC is a good way to get kids excited about swimming at a young age. Also it is fun because you are with swimmers that are on the same ability level as you.”|
