At SwimRVA, we’re not just committed to helping people become great swimmers and enjoy the water, we also believe in being a key educational resource for all things aquatic as well. Embracing aquatics across Richmond is a group effort, and the more quality information you have at your fingertips, the better. That’s why our team posts helpful, informative, and fun original content as well as items from other trusted sources regularly on our blog.
