Riverdale Rapids Swim Team

The Riverdale Rapids Swim Team is the area’s educational competitve swim team. We lead a focused and fun swim program, designed to foster the talents of swimmers ages 6–17. Weeknight and Sunday practices help build skills and technique. Choose one day a week or five days a week to train; the more they train, the better they will be! We compete locally as part of Westchester-Fairfield Swim League. Win or lose, we promote good sportsmanship among our swimmers.

Tryouts for the Rapids are MANDATORY!
