Welcome to Ingomar North Recreation & Swim Club! We are very excited to you be a part of this amazing team!

Our mission on this team is to teach and aid children and young adults (ages up to 18) develop efficient swim technique, swim competitively, while having fun in the process. Swimmers will learn the good work ethics and strong sportsmanship attributes that they will carry with them throughout their daily lives.

This program is run by Ralph Butera. You may contact him with questions about the program at swiminrsc@outlook.com
