USA Swimming ranks Raleigh #3 in its list of top 50 swim cities

USA Swimming has ranked the Raleigh-Durham metro area third in its list of Top 50 Swim Cities in America. Reasons that made our home turf rise so high in the rankings are the high percentage of USA Swimming registered swimmers per capita, and best of all... our "robust summer league participation". That's right, our kids love to swim on Tuesday nights!
