In accordance with today's announcement of new NJ state regulations, all Riptide activities will be suspended starting Saturday, December 5th.

Continuing a string of improvements from recent years, the Raritan Valley YMCA Riptide swim team’s age-groupers finished this season with their highest YMCA state ranking in 10 years.
