About Us

The Ridgetop Recreation Association has fielded a competitive swim team since the 1960’s. After being long-time members of the Greater Richmond Aquatic League, the Riptides joined the James River Aquatic Club in 2005 and compete against other local summer league pools.

The team, 140-150 swimmers strong, enjoys a 10-week season with practice beginning in mid-May, dual meets on Monday evenings in June and July, and a final championship meet in late July. The coaching staff provides instruction for all ages and levels.
