  • Bronze Pre-Meet Info Posted: Warm-up times, parent timing assignments and other Bronze Championship pre-meet information is now posted to the meet page here.  Please be sure to arrive at Witherspoon Middle School in Princeton AT LEAST 15 minutes prior to the first warm-up time listed for your session so you do not get scratched!  Don't forget the Riptide "pregame" championship ritual to take yourself to "WARP speed" leading up to the meet (Water, Anticipate your races, Rest as much as possible & Pasta/Potatoes for carbs!).  We can't wait to see you all crush it at this meet!  Remember, if you make Silvers times at this meet, you will be entered in Silver Championships (unless you declined the meet).  If you have any issues on meet day, if you are sick, or if you are running late, please contact Coach Brian for Saturday sessions and for Sunday, Coach Scott for the 9-10 & 11-12 sessions and Coach Brian for the 13 & over sessions.  Good luck to all of our Bronze Team swimmers! GO RIPTIDE!
  • YMCA 12 & Under Events Posted:  If you are qualified for YMCA 12 & under States, the events and meet info are now posted and you can now sign up for your events on the meet page here.  Please be sure to log on and choose the events you are qualified for on the sign up page.  Thank you!
  • March Madness Sign Up is OPEN! Sign up for our March Madness clinic & training session is now OPEN.  It will run from Wednesday, February 27th through Friday, April 5th.  Grab some of your summer swimming friends and give everyone a jump start on summer swim team season by perfecting those strokes and staying in shape.  This session is very limited in capacity and will be closed when it is maxed out, either in total swimmers or within a particular practice group.  If you want to participate, please sign up asap so you do not get closed out!  Check out the session and sign up info here.
  • Practice Schedule Reminder:  Please remember to check to February calendar for each day as practice group times and pools may be different than normal on any given day.  Be advised that for Monday, February 18th (Presidents' Day) practices are in the morning at the Parlin Aquatic Center ( directions) and there are no practices on February 14th & 19th.
  • Banquet Save the Date!  Our end of season banquet will be held on Saturday, April 13th, 12:00pm-4:00pm, so save the date and please plan on attending.  It is a great time and a great celebration of our season.  More information will be forthcoming soon and will be posted here and also emailed to you.  We hope to see you there to celebrate the end of another amazing Riptide season.
