Important 2019 Swim Team Dates

Monday, May 20th - First day of Swim Team Practice

Welcome To The Kanawha Swim Team

Kanawha has had a competitive swim team since 1955 and was a charter member of the James River Swim Club formed in 1962, the antecedent of what is now the James River Aquatic Club (JRAC) . The 2018 swim season will mark Kanawha's 63rd year of competitive swimming. Today the Kanawha swim team is a group of over 250 swimmers ages 5-18 who practice and compete as a team in the JRAC swimming league. JRAC is comprised of 19 teams and divided into 3 divisions (6 teams in blue, 6 teams in red and 7 teams in white). Kanawha will be returning to the blue division for the 2017 season.  The team enjoys a 10 week season with practice beginning in late May, dual meets on Monday evenings in June and July, and a final championship meet in late July.

KRA Swim Team Mission: To teach competitive stroke technique, turning and diving while also nurturing a love and enthusiasm for the sport of swimming.  As a member of the Kanawha swim team you will learn lifelong swim and fitness skills, share in an enthusiastic, high-energy team and make strong friendships for years to come!


Are you considering Swim Team For The First Time

Swimmers of all levels are welcome. To be on the swim team, children must be able to swim the length of the pool unassisted in both freestyle and backstroke. If they are unable to swim these strokes unassisted, they may be eligible for our MINI-MITE program or GROUP SWIM LESSONS.  

Swim Team Evaluations

If this is your child’s first year on the Kanawha Swim team your child will be required to attend one of two swim team evaluations. At the evaluation your child will be asked to swim one lap of freestyle and one lap of backstroke unassisted in front of our coaches. The coaches will let you know immediately following the evaluation if your child is ready for the SWIM TEAM, MINI-MITES or GROUP SWIM LESSONS . Mini-Mites are apart of the KRA swim team, they just have a shorter practice time and they only swim in the last 3 meets of the season.
