Due to Covid, the landing page for the calendar does not contain meets for the season. When we are able to return to indoor pools and are able to resume meets we will post our competition schedule. Here is some information on swim meets:

Riptide competes in the West Michigan Swim League (WMSL) and USA Swimming (USAS).
  • The WMLS league offers superb opportunity to participate in dual meets with shorter events and timelines as well as Invitationals, while the purpose of this league is developmental and we encourage our younger swimmers to attend, these meets and invitationals are open to all Riptide Swimmers including Jr Riptide team members.
  • USA Swimming meets are for those swimmers who hold a USA Swimming member registration. These meets vary in location, format and are most often held over a weekend. These meets are for our Level I – Senior swimmer, but any Jr Riptide swimmer is encouraged to attend with a USA Membership. If you are a Jr Riptide Parent who is interested in swimming in USA meets, please contact your coaching staff for instructions.
  • Home intersqaud meets are scheduled for our Jr Riptide program. Jr Riptide swimmers are also encouraged to participate in WMSL Dual Meets and Invites during the winter and summer sessions.

A Fall/Winter grid of meets, location, and attendance recommendation can be found here. Michigan Swimming Time Q2 standards are linked here and Q1 time standards are linked here. Region 3 Sectional Time Standards are listed here.

When USA and WMSL meets are "live" you can click on the meet and be taken directly to the meet information to register. You may also click on the Events tab at the top of the . A grid for championships meets and progression can be found under our Documents tab. This document is very helpful for parents of younger swimmers!

As always if you have questions about practice schedules or swim meets, please speak to your group coach or email us by clicking on the "Contact Us" button on the left side of the page. Your question will be sent to our coaching staff. 

We are looking forward when indoor pools reopen to begin a great Short Course Session.
