For children with Autism, SwimRVA Rapids is more than just a swim team. Kids find an outlet to gain confidence, build friendships, and develop key skills that impact their lives for the better. Listen to each family’s reason for why they swim.
Many parents send their kids off to camp over school breaks. That’s what kids do, after all. But how many parents know the benefits of giving their children the summer camp experience?

The SwimRVA New Year’s Challenge is about YOU. It is about setting goals for the coming year. No matter if you are a beginning swimmer or just finished crossing the English Channel, this event is YOURS. At SwimRVA we want you to be healthy, happy and energized to be part of our community. We believe swimming can be your vehicle to stay healthy active and fit. The SwimRVA New Year’s Challenge is about setting a goal of how far you can swim. The format is repeating 100 yard swims on an interval. The interval is designed so you have time to finish each 100 yard swim, get some rest and then start another. Past participants have had goals of 3 x 100s up to 100 x 100s. The measure of success is not how far you swim, but whether you reached YOUR goal and set a NEW GOAL for next year. We hope the New Year’s Challenge is rejuvenating and centers each and every participant on the SUCCESS they will achieve in and out of the pool in 2018.
Did you know that 50% of the population does not know how to swim and ten people drown every single day? Drowning is the number one cause of accidental, injury related death in children under the age of four. It ranks number two for children under the age of fourteen. Summer is here and drowning accidents are happening in our own backyard.
