our facilities. And you want the convenience of being able to sign in quickly when you get here. At the

• It’s neat – no more carrying around an Access Card
• It’s safe – a light shines on your finger and reads your vein pattern
Easy access at the tip of your finger!

Rockville Montgomery Swim Club
This year-round, United States Swimming (USAS) affiliated, age group and senior swim team competes through Potomac
Valley Swimming (PVS), which is the local swim committee (LSC) for USAS. RMSC offers a rewarding training and
competitive experience to swimmers of all ability and interest levels through a schedule of flexible practice times.
Swimmers new to the program must attend a skill assessment and group placement evaluation at the pool of their
choice. Coaches will assign practice groups depending on skill level. Swimmers may not begin to practice with
their designated group until all registration forms have been completed and all fees have been paid in full. Entry
into advanced level groups is available by coaches’ invitation only. Those who participated in the program last year
may register only for the group with which they practiced last year. No swimmer may change group assignment
unless instructed to do so by a coach. The Fall/Winter session of RMSC runs September 2010 to March 2011.

from college, had a few kids, or retired from
your day job? Not at all! Divers all over the

For fastest registration priority,


use RecWeb, or
register in person!
The Recreation Department offers four ways to register for
activities:
RecWeb internet registration, walk-in registration, mail, and fax.
See page 142 for more information about each of these
registration procedures.
A note about fax and mailed registrations: Our Customer Service
representatives process faxed and mailed registrations as quickly
as possible; but we cannot guarantee that these registrations will
be processed immediately upon receipt. If there are walk-in
customers at the Customer Service window when faxed or mailed
registrations are received, the walk-in customers are served before
the faxed or mailed registrations are processed. If faxed or mailed
registration forms are received prior to the first official day of
registration, these forms will be secured in a safe until registration
begins. At that time, the faxed or mailed registrations will be
processed, but may not necessarily be processed in the strict
order that they were received, and all will be treated as if they
arrived on the first day of registration.

NEW

Ages 50+ : Kettlebell training will delay the ef-


fects of age. Once you devote 15-20 minutes, a
few times per week, you will experience amaz-
ing results fast. You will benefit from increased
strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular endur-
ance. In addition, you will find your balance and
coordination drastically improve, along with your
full body mobility. You can expect your daily
activities and chores to become easier to perform,
and far less exhausting. Learn how to perform
the basic exercises in this eight week program.
There is no such thing as, ‘too old!’ Kettlebells
will be provided by the instructor at each class;
however, you will be encouraged to buy your
own kettlebell in order to practice your exercises
throughout the week. Be sure to bring water and
a towel to each class and your kettlebell (if you
have one.) For more information email Jason
