Rockwall Golf & Athletic Club (RGAC) – 2018 Summer Swim Team
Home of the STINGRAYS!
Registration is currently OPEN!
The Rockwall Golf & Tennis Club provides an educational and FUN environment for swimmers throughout the summer. We pride ourselves on creating a positive experience for children of all skill levels. Our goal is to teach the value of team cooperation, safety, hard work, and the pursuit of personal excellence. Through the Stingray Team experience, we hope to give your children memories and tools to help build a healthy and happy future. We take swimmers from ages 5 to 17, beginners should be able to swim a length of the pool without aid with their face in the water with some breathing patterns (head in/out of water). We will accept swimmers that can demonstrate the ability to perform basic strokes and can complete an entire practice with an attitude of wanting to swim. The first week of practice will be used as a “try-out” session for these swimmers. Final decision will be made by the coaches. The Stingray swimmers compete in the Dallas Summer Swim League and we are so proud to be the defending champions for our division.
