Open for New Members

8/30/18 - 2/18/19



Welcome to the Dowling Catholic Riptide Swim Club Electronic Registration platform for our upcoming swim season! The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you to easily sign up for swim meets, see your children's swim times histories, maintain your own contact information, and more.

The short course season runs from September 2018 through early March 2019. If you are registering for the short course season, it is expected that your swimmer(s) participate the entire season and you will be charged as such.

Returning Members: Please choose "Register Now" then "Check Submitted Registration."  You will need to select your training group, subject to the head coach's approval. Everyone will need to renew their annual USA Swimming membership this season, which will be valid through December 2019.  The $72.00 USA Swimming membership fee is not included in the Riptide short course season fee but will be assessed separately.  It is a non-refundable fee

New Members: There will be new member tryouts on August 30, 2018 from 6:30-8:00 pm in the Dowling Catholic High School pool.  Registration will open for new members on Thursday August 30, 2018 at 8:00am. New members will be required to swim for the coaching staff.  As a reminder, the Riptide Swim Club is not a learn to swim program.  Potential members must be able to swim the minimum requirements as stated in the training group descriptions.  Once accepted by the coaching staff after your child tries out, go to the team website and choose "Register Now" then follow the instructions to set up an account and register your athlete for the team. This will walk you through all the steps necessary to join the Riptide Swim Club.  Be sure to register for the USA Swimming version of your training group.  If you have any trouble, please email the Team Administrator at dchsriptide@gmail.com.  There is also a mandatory USA Swimming Registration fee of $72.00 that will be assessed separately. This fee is not included in the Riptide registration fee and it is non-refundable. 

Athletes will not be allowed to practice without completing the online registration process and paying the USA Swimming and Riptide season fees.

Refund Policy: Please be aware that Riptide has a no refund policy after October 1st.  Prior to October 1st if a swimmer is no longer on the team and your method of payment was full season payment at the time of registration, the full registration fee minus $100 will be refunded if a request is made in writing no later than October 1st to dchsriptide@gmail.com. If your payment option was monthly, no refund will be made. Riptide is not capable of refunding the USA Swimming membership fee.

We look forward to having you join the Dowling Catholic Riptide Swim Club and are excited for another great season!
