Kernersville Riptyde

Kernersville Riptyde is a summer swim team that represents neighborhoods across the Kernersville area and is open to all members of the community ages 5-18. Started in summer 2011 at the Kernersville Family YMCA, the team participates in the Tri-County Swim Association. Kernersville Riptyde teaches swimmers a life-long love for the sport and how to excel in and out of the water. Swim team is a great way to meet other kids at the pool, stay active over the summer, and enjoy some friendly competition.

THE ONLY REQUIREMENTS to join are that you enjoy swimming, have the ability to swim freestyle or backstroke for 1 length of the pool (25 yards - we’ll teach the stroke techniques), and a willingness to reach your full potential.



Season Dates: May 14th – July 20th

Swim Meets: Regular season meets are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings, weather permitting.
