    However, it should be taken in consideration that the NCAP is the largest swimming team in the USA! The NCAP men’s team had championship with 800.5 points and 35 male swimmers! The RMSC men’s team had 659 points and 25 male swimmers. Thus, NCAP had 22.87 points per male swimmer, and RMSC -26.36 point per male swimmer! Thus, at NCSA competition, RMSC had a stronger point efficacy per male swimmer then NCAP!

    Lol, Mrs B. Love it. We should make shirts and trophies for the boys: “Higher point efficacy per male swimmer then NCAP.” So true.

    Take it easy up there. I have a question for NCAP or RMSC parents… but first I would like to thank the editors of Reach for the Wall for providing such useful information.

    My child’s PVS team is a small team and does not offer traveling to these Orlando, FL meets. I am planning to change to either NCAP or RMSC to give my child more opportunities that the bigger clubs offer. Swimming has become a passion for my child and this year in the PVS 14&U Championship my child was ranked about top 20 in all 6 strokes participated.

    Can you parents, give me feed back about your experience going to the Orlando, FL meets? Do your teams travel together via bus or plane? Costs? Any locations you recommend within your club team? What positive thing would you say about your club?

      A small team does not always traveling to Orlando and Indy, because of limited registration capacity of the NCSA meets. The NCAP, RMSC and some other PVS teams have some registration preferences, because of regular participations at the NCSA meets. NCSA organizing two annual meets: at spring in Orlando and at summer in Indianapolis. This is highly exciting and competitive meets in the USA for junior swimmers!!! Your child will get the great experience of the national meet!!! The most difficult part (especially for a younger swimmer) is to qualify for this meet – the NCSA qualification cuts are very tough. Thus, to participate at NCSA meet, your child have to qualify at least for one event and he/she will have two additional bonus events! You have to read more detailed information about this meet – see link below:

      Usually teams are traveling by plane. Traveling cost for NCSA meets are really affordable. RMSC swimmers have sponsors in Eaton Foundation to cover the significant part of travel costs for the NCSA meets. Likely that some other PVS teams have some sponsors as well. Both NCAP and RMSC are great teams – young swimmers from both teams have a lot of great accomplishments including NCSA championships, National team and Olympic trial qualifiers and others. I believe that NCAP registration and annual fee is a little higher then in RMSC, but you have to call and check this information! Good luck!!!
