The hot summers and mild winters of Richmond make swimming a year-round sport. With a plethora of community pools, private pools, public pools and swim teams you are likely to find your hot spot. Swimming can be a fun time for families on a hot summer day and are a great way to relax and cool off. Seeing as temperatures commonly reach upper 90s and even 100s (ÂºF) June through September, spending ample time in the water is a given. In a city like Richmond itâ€™s important to make sure your family is swim ready and that they know water safety skills. Aqua-tots is a leader in swim instruction and water safety skills.
