Below is the information about the summer performance course for Round Rock High School Athletes. A presentation was given to the swimmers in study hall near the end of the year. I think participation would be a benefit to all and encourage those who want to increase their strength and athleticism to seriously think about signing up.

The RRHS Swim Team is very competitive. Although any RRHS student is allowed to try out, previous swim team experience is highly recommended. The above times should be considered goal times. Achievement of these times does not guarantee a spot on the team. Performance during the practice set and grades are large factors in team placement.
Accepting a place on the team means the family also accepts the fundraising and volunteer commitment.
Please review the current team handbook found under the 'handouts' section of the team website to get further information about the team and its expectations.
If you have any questions, please contact Coach Arredondo at 512-704-1814 or
Beginning Monday, 4/23 swimmers will be returning their equipment.
Equipment should be washed and placed in a large bag with their name clearly visible on the outside.
Please have your swimmer look around their room for any and all equipment. Any school issued equipment should be returned whether it was checked out to them or not.
The cost of any missing equipment will be placed on the student's obligation list after 4/26.
I asked Rylie if it was ok to post this information tonight as several people have been asking.
Some of you by this point have heard the news about Rylie York, who has been a member of this team for the past four years. I wanted those of you who haven't heard to know that one of our family members needs all the love and support that we can give her right now and for the coming battle ahead.
Last week Rylie and her family received news that no one ever wants to hear. She was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. Upon further tests over the past few days it was determined that the cancer has spread to other parts of her body and she is stage 4b. She is currently headed to Houston for admittance to Texas Children's Hospital.
I won't go into further detail, as not to say things I don't know all the details about and also because I don't know what to say . . . I think the best thing to do is to share the link for the blog that she has created. Rylie says it best herself and her courage and positivity are amazing to witness. Please keep Rylie and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this time.
