Team Seating and Tent Set-up:

  • We recommend setting up your tents and chairs in the grassy area behind the pool.  
  • This grassy area is away from the pool.  We do have loud speakers pointed out there, but swimmers and their families are encouraged to LISTEN CLOSELY for event numbers so they don't miss their races!
  • Additionally, please remember parents and other spectators should not be behind the blocks. 

Snack Bar/Merchandise: We are going to attempt to take credit cards. With no service at the pool I have do authorization forms that can be filled out and you will be charged at the end of the meet. However we prefer cash or check.

Remember swim meets are fun and a time to support and cheer for one another. We ask that we show our Riptide spirt and root for our fellow swimmers. 

Go Riptide!!!
