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!

  • 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.
