2018 Summer Swim Team Registration is OPEN!

               Welcome to the 2018 Riptide Swim Team! We are looking forward to the upcoming summer swim season! Our team enables your child to be on a competitive swim team that promotes an example of a healthy lifestyle involving exercise, sportsmanship, hard work, commitment and friendship. We have a lot of fun things on the agenda.

              This summer we thought it would be exciting to incorporate a team motto that will be repeated frequently to encourage swimmers and spark some team spirit. This summer our Riptide motto is:
                                                                                       Fear the Grip of the Rip

We have two ways for your swimmer to be involved on the team.

  • Riptide Swim Team: Competitive swim team where swimmers are expected to participate in the swim meets
  • Junior Riptides: Developmental Swimmers who are not quite ready to participate on the competitive team but are able to swim one length of the pool unassisted. **Those swimmers who cannot will need to take swim lessons independent of the team before signing up.

All swimmers who are registered prior to May 1st, will receive one team t-shirt and one swim cap as part of the registration fee.

**The first 25 families to register will be entered into a raffle for a basket giveaway with prizes!**

We will be offering a variety of Riptide Spirit Ware available for purchase! Please be on the lookout for additional information from our Spirit Ware Team!

              Practices will begin Monday, May 21st. Practices are held in the late afternoon until school is out. Since the season is so short and the kids are still in school leading into mid-June, we will have Saturday morning practices this summer to get additional pool time. A full detailed schedule will be released very shortly.
