DOWLING CATHOLIC RIPTIDE SWIM
Swim Club is a part of the Dowling Catholic Aquatics family of
programs. At its core, the Riptide Swim Club has the same
values as Dowling Catholic High School. It will inspire a
Christ-centered love of aquatics and respect for fellow human
beings through the application of moral principles and
excellence. Riptide Swimming also stresses the six pillars of
character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility,
Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. All of these values are
important as the program is not only here to develop good young
swimmers, but to develop good character in an effort to mold the
swimmers into outstanding human beings.
Swimming believes our swimmers should be respected, cared about,
and well coached. We want every athlete to have a positive
experience while being a part of a team that builds physical,
social, spiritual and emotional skills. Some of the greatest
memories that a young person has will come from a sports team that
they were involved in. We want our athletes to love participating
here and have fun while competing.
Catholic Riptide Swim Club will put a tremendous emphasis on
respect, sportsmanship and class.
parents and athletes represent the Catholic community here at
school, in the community and around the state of Iowa. We have a
responsibility, being involved in a program centered on Christ, to
treat people with respect and to be good role models while at the
same time competing at a high level as a team.
This team is
special because we can be the best in terms of respect,
sportsmanship and class while still
competing at the highest levels
