*Walk-ins will be accepted, but pre-registration is preferred. 



-What do I need to bring? Swimmer should arrive ready to swim with their suit on. Changing facilities may not be available. Please bring swim, cap, goggles, and a towel.

-Is there a tryout fee?  There is no fee to try out. If you make the team, a non-refundable deposit will be required to hold your spot on our roster.

-Do I need to pre-register? Pre-registration is not required, but preferred. Walk-ins are welcome. Registration paperwork will be available on-site. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your tryout time to complete the necessary paperwork and prepare for your tryout. Please note: space on our team is limited and spots are filled on a rolling basis. Practice groups may close once filled, so your best opportunity to make the team is to attend one of the earlier tryout dates!

-How long is the season? Our regular season runs from September to February. The season may be extended through March or April, depending on which championship meets you qualify for.

- I do not have prior swim team experience, can I still try out? YES! Riptide welcomes emerging dedicated swimmers interested in pursuing swim at the competitive level. To try out, swimmers must be able to several laps of at least 3 of the 4 competitive strokes (freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, fly). Younger swimmers (8 and under) must be able to swim two laps of at least 2 of the 4 competitive strokes using a legal stroke pattern.

-Do I need to attend multiple tryouts? You only need to attend one tryout date. When you try out, you will try out for your age group for the upcoming season (age as of December 1st, 2020, not necessarily your age as of the tryouts).

Thank you for your interest in our team!
