RAC Family,
Never stop growing. Every moment in life is an opportunity to get better… Every interaction, every word, and every relationship can be greatly enhanced if we choose to be the best versions of ourselves. This is a full time commitment. Whether we are working, playing, or resting, there are ways to make the most out of the situation. We are confronted daily with decisions where we must choose one or the other.

Being Better VS Being Bitter
Decisiveness VS Indifference
Steering VS Drifting
Development VS Destruction
Choice VS Chance
Progressing VS Regressing
Action VS Activity
Solutions VS Problems

The list goes on and on… Whether or not we want to admit it, we are forced to make decisions and those decisions determine the outcome and quality of our lives. “One of the greatest tragedies in life is to watch potential die untapped.” Don’t go through life waiting for things to approach you. Attack the day with intent. You can’t have both. Which will you choose?
See you out on the fitness floor, BG
Spring into action!

March Highlights
Thank you to everyone who participated in one of the biggest March swim clinics in club history! I’d like to personally thank my staff, starting with Coach Faith, Coach Arian, and all of our Junior Coaches in training who did a phenomenal job with the newest and youngest swimmers. Thank you also to Coach Allison for leading the coaches and holding down the fort on many days while Coach Carsen and I were busy coaching many of our most seasoned Rollingwood swimmers at Bella Vista High School. I couldn’t be happier with the start of the Spring swim season at RAC, and I’m excited to have our full staff back on deck along with our full complement of Rollingwood swimmers in the upcoming Rocket season. It’s my pleasure and honor to be a part of such a special swim family. Go Rockets!

~Coach Andrew 
Such a great time had by all at our St. Patrick's Day Tennis Social, finally some breaks in the weather forecast allowing us to get on court and play tennis. The courts were filled with fun doubles followed by food and drinks in our upstairs lobby and outdoor deck overlooking the lovely landscape. A major thanks to all of our participants both members and guest, such a great turnout!
