"If I accept you as you are, I will make you worse; however if I treat you as though you are what you are capable of becoming, I help you become that." -- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

The Riptides Racing Team believes in a progressive training and competition system.  Swimmers will advance from one training level to the next, increasing their participation and duration at each level.  Swimmers will accordingly increase their competition ability as he or she moves through the proven Riptides' system.  The coaching staff will continue to employ the core philosophy of Education, Participation and Graduation, while keeping training and competition FUN! 

The Riptides is divided into 2 primary training groups - Senior and Age-group (which consists of Gold, Silver, Bronze and Blue).
