Rockford Riptide : Background-image
Our Rockford Riptide Partners

Mission Statement: "Our purpose is to introduce children to the benefits of competitive swimming and encourage our swimmers to reach their highest level of potential in and out of the water while demonstrating leadership and sportsmanship skills."

Welcome to the Rockford Riptide Swim Program!
 Per Governor Whitmer's announcement on June 1, school facilities and practices are closed to comply with the Governor's Executive Order though at least June 15.

The Coaching Staff and Board of Directors is closely monitoring updates from public health officials and the guidance offered by our school districts and local health authorities regarding the spread of COVID-19.

We understand that it is hard to be parted from your friends, coaches and teammates. Therefore, we have provided our swimmers with some inspiration and education until we can get back in the water.

You can find our Fish Out of Water activities on our Event Page drop down menu. Have some fun and drop your pictures and videos to our Team Facebook page. Please check out our Virtual Dryland program for 12 & Under Swimmers and 13 & Over Swimmers on our Events page. These sessions will be posted on our Events page for registration each week.

Below is some Club information we feel important for you to know:

We are looking forward to when pools are approved to re-open. While we don't know exactly when that might be, we are working hard to review guidance documents provided by USA Swimming, the health department and public health experts. We miss our swimmers! Both the coaching staff and the board are very proud of our swimmers and the performance we saw last season!

Pending the Governor's order and district plans, should pools be positioned to reopen summer registration could tentatively open in June. New summer registration options for swimmers will be announced.

Spring sessions assessment for Jr Riptide have been completed. If you missed evaluations or have an interest in joining our Jr Riptide Team, please contact Coach Jenna & Ross at
