From the President



All families, (new or returning), will get a NEW Rapids Car Magnet if they register not later than Friday, April 20th!  The magnets will be available during our two nights of registration in April.

Calling All Parents!  Are you looking for a great way to get the kids out of the house each day for an hour or two of exercise and a chance to soak up the rays?  Then the Austin Ridge Rapids is the perfect choice for you and your family.  We are looking for swimmers between the age of 5 and 18 to be a part of our team.  Our only requirement is that your swimmer can make it from one end of the pool to the other.  We are a teaching team, concentrating on making it fun and enjoyable for the swimmer while they work to improve their strokes, so it doesn't matter whether you swim like a minnow or a dolphin.  We're also a parent volunteer organization, so parental participation IS a must to make the swim season a great time for the entire family.

It's that time of year to gear up for the 2018 Austin Ridge Swim Team season!  We are already busy planning this season and with some new faces on the swim board there are lots of new ideas and excitement!  I’d like to welcome our new secretary, Mylinda Stone, our new Vice President, Lynne Sharkey, and our new Member-At-Large, Kate Schroeder! We are so excited for them to join the existing board; Andrea David, Volunteer Coordinator, Kari Futch, RSL rep, Rick Green, Treasurer, and myself, Tanya Vazquez, President.  We are excited for you to join us this summer as we are preparing for a GREAT season! We are thrilled to welcome back Coach Bianca this year! (and many more we hope!) We will still be swimming in the American Division this year and I can’t wait to see all the kids one year older!


We are kicking off our registration at Sweet Frog!

Monday, April 16th @ 6:00pm

We thought this was a great way to treat the kids, get them excited for swim season, and fundraise at the same time. We hope you are able to help us make the night a success!! More info will be sent about that in March so watch your emails for updates.
