Welcome to Riptide Swim Program!  

Per the announcement by Governor Whitmer gyms and indoor pools are open for organized sports. We are working closely with our facility contacts to better understand protocols and facility availability for club and community sports. We are hopeful to get our swimmers back in the pool and swimming this fall.  Please check back periodically for updates.
