The University of Rhode Island Club Swim and Dive team is a co-ed club sport that competes with other colleges and universities from September to the beginning of April. The club practices in the water and with dry-land exercises Monday- Friday from 2:00-4:00 in the Tootell Aquatics Center on-campus. Throughout the regular season, the team usually has a total of 4 meets and hosts 1 home meet per semester. At the end of the spring semester, in April, we travel to the East Coast College Swim and Dive Club Championships and compete with over 80 other club teams.
Swimmers and divers of all skill levels are welcome to join the team and are typically allowed to join at the beginning of the fall or spring semesters. As a club team, we recognize the difficulty of the college course load and are flexible with our student-athletes. We do our best to accommodate students of all majors and ensure that the team and practices are manageable, fun, and a great stress reliever. The practices are designed so that every swimmer can improve, no matter their skill level. In the pool, we specialize our workouts to suit the majority of the group but we also will commonly separate into specific groups (i.e. sprint vs. distance) to accommodate every specialty.
As a club team, fundraising is vital to our program, and we do much of the fundraising ourselves. Fortunately, we do not require costly uniforms or gear, but there are some other expenses such as competition fees, equipment, travel, apparel, and coaching personnel that require ample funds. If you would like to help us fund these expenses and improve our organization, please consider donating to the URI Club Swim and Dive Team.
