2019 Masked Bandits Swim and Dive Team Registration

Registration for the 2019 Masked Bandits Swim and Dive Team is now OPEN! Please access the link below to register your children. All full access and STO members between the ages of 4 and 18 as of June 18th are eligible to join the Swim Team.  PLEASE NOTE: You must be a Full Access or STO member of Raccoon Valley Swim Club to join the Swim and/or Dive Team.  Please see Memberships pages for info on how to join the Club. 

We welcome kids of all ability levels: we have a kickboarding program for those just learning to swim, a beginner lane for those working to complete a full lap, and a fun but rigorous training program for our more experienced swimmers! Swim Team is a great way to stay in shape, make new friends, and master the life-long skill of swimming.

Swim Team fees for this year are $110 per swimmer with $35 multi-child discount applied after first two swimmers.  Dive Team fees are $110 per diver. Given the size of the Dive Team, we are not able to offer a multi-child discount for Dive.  Also, please note that this year we are collecting a Bake Table fee of $12.50 per swimmer as part of the registration process, instead of collecting donations for each meet.  We expect to have at least 3 Bake Tables this season. Thank you for your cooperation.

So... what are you waiting for? Come on out and join us!!!
