The head coach will be responsible for administrative tasks, setting team goals, ability to write sets and organize training for all groups, organize and oversee summer/winter program, attend swim meets, a motivating and positive role model, maintain high ethical and moral standards, and adhere to USA Swimming Coach’s Code of Conduct.

The Rapid City Racers Swim team is founded on the belief that age-group competitive swimming offers an exciting and worthwhile experience in a young person’s life.  It can be learned and enjoyed by those with very little natural ability, as well as those who are of Olympic caliber.  Its values go far beyond that of learning efficiency in the water. It is a basic assumption that for an age-group competitive program to succeed, it must encompass and challenge all who participate and it must follow continuous developmental progression.  Swimmers learn balance and the feel of movement through water, much the same as they sense movement and balance out of water.  This water sense can only come through continued and constant exposure to water, with each succeeding step bringing about an increased sophistication in stroke technique. The Rapid City Racers is recognized as a Level 2 USA Swim Club.
