2018 Fall Fiesta Sprint Spectacular - Rockford Riptide - Rockford, MI

Sign up due October 18, @ 8:00p

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 Team Meet and is recommended for all USA registered Riptide 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 Fall USA Meet and we will need many volunteers.

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 of both our home USA meets. 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 a session or two of your choice. Signing up for more than one session during a meet provides your family with a $10 credit to your account.

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 $25 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.

Please fill out the attached sponsorship form by Friday, November 9th, if you are interested in sponsoring event(s) and share with friends and family! Please email the completed sponsorship form to Adam Forbes, Administrative Official at and make checks payable to: Rockford Riptide Swim Team With Attn: 2018 Rockford Riptide Fall Event Sponsor & Name. Checks may be mailed to Rockford Riptide Swim Team P.O. Box 382 Rockford, MI 49341.
