Description: This is a USA Swimming sanctioned meet. Any Riptide Swimmer who is registered with USA/MI Swimming is eligible to participate. This home meet is a Home Team Meet and is recommended for all Riptide USA registered swimmers.

You must be a MI Swimming/USA Swimming member to participate in this meet. (Junior Riptide swimmers who are interested in competing at USA Swimming sanctioned meets, please contact your group coach for more information). 

Home Meet Volunteering: This is our home Winter USA Meet and we will need many volunteers, please see jobs list

You may recall when you registered your swimmer for Rockford Riptide our registration materials informed parents that we will need each family to work at least one session per day of our home USA meets. Since this is a 2 day meet, the requirement is for TWO volunteer shifts.  Home meets give our swimmers great opportunity to compete in our home pool and help to sustain our team.

Please take a minute to review the meet job descriptions and sign up for TWO shifts of your choice. Signing up for more than two sessions during this meet provides your family with a $10 credit to your account, per shift.  If needed, you may work both shifts in one day.

Event Sponsorship: Once again we are including our Event Sponsorship program where individuals can sponsor events at our home swim meets. This is a fun way to support our swimmers during the meets.

The cost is $10 to sponsor an individual event or relay. Both the sponsor and the swimmer will be recognized in the program and during meet announcements. If your child has a grandparent, god parent, favorite friend or teacher, please let them know about the program. This is a great way to make your swimmer’s day special.
