Open for New Members

Welcome to the Virginia Run Riptide Electronic Registration platform for our upcoming swim season! We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration. The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you easily declare for swim meets, sign-up for jobs, see your children's swim times histories, maintain your own contact information, and more.


Female: $200
Male: $180

This includes the cost of the swimsuit.  This price includes the registration, suit and coach appreciation. The cost difference between male and female is the cost of the swimsuit.

Credit Card fees will apply, if you prefer to avoid those fees, please pay by Check (payable to VR Riptide) and deliver to Robin Osterhout at 6508 Marston Cluster

Swim Suit Included Suit pick-up will begin AFTER registration on April 19th.  Robin will send a list of registered swimmer's to Cassel's on Monday, April 19th and update them with a new list each week.  You can go to Cassel's at 2816 Towerview Rd, Herndon, VA 20171.  Due to Covid they have reduced hours. They are open M-F from 10a-6p (no Sat/Sun hours currently).  Please pick up your suit sooner rather than later.  Some sizes always run out and they will order size but that can take time.

  • New Families - the team suit is not required to be worn for practices. Team suits must be worn for meets.  However, lots of swimmers like to wear their team suit for practices too and for the boys wearing a jammer to practice is helpful vs swim trunks.  You can buy practice suits at Cassel's, wear the team suit or other suit you own for practices.

Multi-Swimmer Discount

Families with multiple swimmers will pay full price for the first swimmer and receive $10 off for each additional swimmer.

Other equipment needed for practices

  • Fins – you can purchase at Cassel’s. We will have a bin at practice of old fins that can be borrowed or purchased for $5 (sizes are random and just whatever was left behind in 2019)
  • Goggles 
  • Caps – these are not required for practice, but some swimmers like to wear them.  Team caps will be sold soon and if your swimmer wears a cap, only the team cap can be worn at meets.  More information on how to purchase a team cap will be sent when we open our Spirit Wear Store.

We look forward to having you join the Virginia Run Riptide and are excited for another great season!
