SCHEDULE CHANGES POSSIBLE

We are aware of the ever changing conditions regarding COVID-19.  This may cause changes in the current schedule of early season events including suit fitting and swim clinic.  As more information becomes available we will post any changes on the team website.  Please check back for updates.

UPDATE (3/29/20)

Some new information to pass along to our Riptide Families.  Due to the Safer at Home order some planned events have been cancelled or rescheduled.  

Culvers Share Night:  due to the current conditions this share night on April 14th has been cancelled.  We are unsure if rescheduling it is possible at this time.

Registration/Payments:  Team registration remains open. We will work to provide refunds if our scheduled events get cancelled.  If you mailed a check for registration fees please know we will NOT cash the check until we know if we will be able to move forward with the season.  

Spring Swim Clinic: As a team we are tied to the Indoor Pool for the swim clinic. As long as the schools remain closed so will the indoor pool. This may cause swim clinic to be cancelled or shortened. 

Riptide Suit Fitting and Apparel: Riptide team suits and apparel are currently available for purchase on the Simply Swimming website. (https://www.simplyswimming.net/riptide)  Simply Swimming will try to reschedule suit fittings once the Safer at Home order is lifted, but have encouraged members our team to purchase online if they feel comfortable doing so. 

Officials Training: 3 dates have been set up for Officials Training. (April 18, April 30 and May 6) The April 18 date will be cancelled.  If you are one of our team officials or would like to become an official you will need to attend a training session.  Other options and dates for officials training are being looked at.  

Tri-County Conference Season: Due to this unprecedented situation the presidents of the Tri-County Conference will wait until more information is available to help make an informed decision in regards to the upcoming season.  We are planning to meet in early May to discuss and hopefully make a timeline regarding the season as a whole. 

Thank you for your continued understanding as we navigate through this current environment.  

UPDATE (3/20/20)

Riptide is continuing to monitor the ever changing conditions with regard to COVID-19.  We will follow the guidance of the facilities we use in regards to the upcoming spring clinic and summer season.  

Team registration is still open.  We will work to provide refunds if our scheduled season events get cancelled due to the conditions surrounding COVID-19. 

UPDATE (3/15/20)

Team suit fitting will for April 5th is cancelled and will be rescheduled.  The new date will be posted once it is known. 

Spring Swim Clinic will begin on April 6th as scheduled.  If the school closure lasts longer than April 6th we will evaluate again at that time.

Thank you for your understanding

Welcome to Riptide Swim Team

What is Riptide Swim team? Simply put, it is a summer recreational swim team for kids. Each Saturday morning, teams gather at our pool or a pool within an hour's drive for a 3-4 hour swim. All swimmers usually will have at least three races. Each spring, we start getting the kids ready with a swim clinic, which gets the kids ready for summer. The spring swim clinic is not mandatory. Riptide is an activity the whole family can participate in. Kids ages 5 through 18, all swim together at the same meets – in what other sport do you have such a wide range of age groups all working together as one team? Our goal is to have all swimmers support one another and to grow both physically and emotionally over the summer months. We are glad that you are part of our organization!

Mission of the Baraboo Riptide

  • Promote the Team: All swimmers will show respect for all other team members and coaches. All swimmers will do their best to participate in practices, meets and special events.
  • Promote Good Sportsmanship: All swimmers will respect competition rules, officials and other swimmers.
  • Create an Atmosphere of Learning and Fun: All swimmers will learn basic skills and understand competition guidelines and rules. All swimmers should enjoy their participation as team members.
  • Create a Good, Clean, Competitive Spirit: All swimmers will develop a personal sense of competition and understand that competition should enhance their own and others’ personal goals.
  • Provide a Safe and Healthy Exercise: All swimmers will learn the benefits of exercise and physical improvement. All swimmers will participate in practices and meets under safe conditions.
  • Become a Proficient Swimmer: All swimmers will progress with physical skills related to improving their swimming.
