The Rivercrest Swim Team was established in May
2007 as a family oriented, developmental, competitive swim
team. Our goal is to provide a safe and healthy environment
for the children in our community; to enjoy a competitive
recreation sport; learn valuable life lessons of sportsmanship and
teamwork; enhance personal improvement and team spirit; to have fun
and develop a love of swimming.
Riptide belong to the Old Dominion Swim League (ODSL), a summer
league comprised of approximately 25 swim teams from Loudoun
County. The team is comprised of 80-90 swimmers between the
ages of 5-18. Experienced coaches provide all swimmers with a safe
and instructive environment and challenge them to reach their
personal and team goals. We also have a Mini Waves program in
which Rivercrest kids who are not yet swim team-ready can learn the
skills to be safe in the pool and to help them become a
Riptide swimmer one day.
Practices and home meets take place at the
Rivercrest Community Pool.
