RMSC is a year-round, United States of America Swimming (USAS) affiliated, age group and senior swim team. The team competes through Potomac Valley Swimming (PVS), which is our local swim committee (LSC) for USAS. RMSC offers a rewarding training and competitive experience to swimmers of all abilities and interest levels through a schedule of flexible practice times. Swimmers new to the program must attend try-outs for skill assessment and group placement at the pool of their choice. The following criteria is used to determine possible group placement; age, technique and endurance. Minimum qualifications for each age group can be found below or on the team website. Swimmers may not begin to practice with their designated group until all registration forms have been completed and all fees have been paid in full. Those who participated in the program this past season may register but only for the group with which they practiced with last season. No swimmer may change group assignments unless instructed to do so by a coach. Entry into advanced level groups is available by coach's invitation only.
