Our Winter practice schedule will be forthcoming, once
finalized. This area will contain updated information for our
Weekly/Monthly practice times. If Riptide experiences any last
minute changes to practice, we will look to alert you via email and
our Team Feed that day.
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
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
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
