Adult Programs

We strive to offer different opportunities for our adult members who would like to use our pool. You can participate in aquatics at RRC through Water Gym, Masters Swimming, private technique/stroke lessons, video lessons and learn to swim lessons. Additionally, lap swim times are available throughout the day.

Masters Swim

The Masters Swim Program is coached by Melissa Lewis, certified US Masters Swim Coach. The program provides planned workouts for swimmers of all abilities. Workouts are tailored to your ability and fitness level with a special focus on improving your stroke technique. By participating in these workouts you can learn to swim faster, farther and stronger with less effort than before. This is a non-competitive and very supportive environment in which to reach your swimming goals. Whether you want to get some exercise and instruction or you are training for a specific event, come join us in the pool and experience the difference.
