The 2020 Summer Swim Season has been canceled due to COVID-19

Dear Riptide Families:

It is with deep regret that I inform our team and community that our summer swim season has been cancelled by the NVSL due to Covid-19. The NVSL spent many months considering all options and consulting with public health officials, government officials and league division coordinators before making this decision. While the Governor's plan for re-opening offers a glimmer of hope that pools could potentially open by late June, the guidelines still in place throughout the summer in phase 1 and 2 will not be broad enough to allow for us to run large practices or meets in a safe way.

General Team Information
VR Riptide is a closed pool, open only to VR Residents. New Families interested in the team should email for information. You can also visit the FAQ tab of this site for useful information about our swim team. New swimmers usually start around the age of 6 and swim until 18. We are not a "learn to swim" program. New swimmers must be able to swim a 25M (one length of pool) freestyle, unassisted to be eligible for the team. This ensures they are water safe and ready to learn the other strokes which we will introduce over the course of the summer.

Parent Volunteering is a part of Swim Team. All families are required to volunteer for 5 jobs per season 1 must be at Time Trials and only 1 could be at a social event. All others must be at swim meets
