Important Reminders

  • Bronze Classic Invite: Thank you to EVERYONE who helped to run a fantastic two day invitational with seven other teams. We had so many different folks who stepped up: parents, Riptide swimmers, parents of coaches, a Masters swimmer, classmates, siblings of swimmers, boy friends of coaches…you name it! Remember, that it truly does take a village to make these meets run as well as they do. Now for the most important reason we run these meets…the SWIMMERS! We are very proud of each and every swimmer and hope they had as much fun as the coaches did watching them compete and challenge themselves. The meet results are loaded into Team Unify as well as Meet Mobile. GO RIPTIDE!
  • Championship Meets: We will have updates regarding Regionals by Tuesday night. It’s going to be a BIG meet. Both the 14&U and Senior State meet entries are due today. As soon as we have more details, we will let you know. If you have any questions, please reach out to your swimmer’s lead coach. Be aware that as we approach the end of the season, practice times may be adjusted. Our coaches will keep you updated!
  • The End of the Season Celebrations: We are so PROUD of our swimmers and we will celebrate their achievements today with post-practice dinner for the following groups: 8&U, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Junior Select!  Senior and Senior Prep groups will have their dinner tomorrow after the practice. Please note ALL of the groups will still have a practice followed by the party! Thank you to all who have volunteered to help and are bringing food/money contributions! Please plan on picking up your swimmers about 30 minutes after their regular practice end time.
