ProgramsRuth Lake offers a full complement of programs geared for children, from the beginning swim lessons for the young children to the competitive atmosphere of the swim and dive teams. The staff is current in all stroke techniques and teaching styles whether the individual is new to swimming or is someone who wants to refine their competitive strokes. Our Aquatics staff is led by Director Mark Pappalardo, a former collegiate diver, and now an educator and coach at Oak Park-River Forest High School.
The RLCC Riptide team programs provide opportunities for children of all ages to participate in a competitive and fun environment as they compete in weekly meets against five other local private Clubs, culminating in a League Championship Meet.
The Aquatics Staff provides fun programs throughout the summer that include a K-3rd grade evening pool party, the annual Ruth Lake Regatta / Cardboard Boat Races, and the 4th grade & older sleepover.
