Riptides Swim Team

Introduce your child to one of the most complete sports around. Competitive swimming develops aerobic endurance and is one of the most beneficial forms of cardiovascular exercise. This sport provides flexibility and muscle toning, in addition to developing self-confidence, self-discipline, and goal setting. Open for ages 5 to 21 years of age.

Each swimmer will be grouped by age and ability. A swim team assessment is required to ensure proper placement of your swimmer.
