Youth Group Lessons
RallySport offers a children’s learn to swim program (ages 3+ years) for RallySport members and non-members. Classes are designed to progress swimmers from beginner (Level 1) to stroke development (level 6), advancing them to potentially join the RACE swim team.
We offer 1-3 lessons per week (per swimmer) and multiple session times to accommodate your busy schedule.
We do require a minimum of two swimmers in each level at any class time slot to continue at the “group lessons” rate. If there is only one swimmer registered for the start of a session in a particular level, the parent will be notified and given the option to choose a different time slot or to choose private lessons.
Please contact Lauren Sampl with any questions or inquiries.

Austin Vinton has been coaching masters and teaching swimmers at RallySport since 2015.
Austin was introduced to competitive swimming early, and spent his childhood racing and training in the pool. Unlike a lot of swimmers, Austin decided not to swim in college, and instead started racing bicycles.
As a cyclist, Austin developed a keen sense for tactics as an endurance athlete. With several results in large professional races, Austin quickly proved himself in the sport. During this time Austin found the sport of open water swimming, and experience and passion for swimming brought him back to the sport, where he now trains and races.
Austin is committed to making Rallysport’s swimmers faster, and bringing more people to the sport of open water.
