Welcome to the Vista Ridge Riptide Swim Team!  

We are a fun, summer swim team with a season that runs from the last week in May through July each year. The Riptide is for Erie families with children ages 5-18 years.  Wether you are a beginning swimmer or have been swimming for years, our coaches work on teaching correct stroke technique in the four basic strokes, dives, turns and improving endurance.  

Our summer league swim team is a "family" sport and we emphasize teaching the value of sportsmanship and team spirit in a fun environment. We have 4 meets during the summer and while we do compete against other teams, our league is designed so that every swimmer may swim at all of the meets and swim in relays if desired. Although our swimmers do earn placement ribbons, we are more about the fun of swimming and being part of a team.  

2018 Registration has closed.  Although we are full, we do get drops at the beginning of the season. So if you'd like to be on the waitlist, please click on the REGISTRATION tab for the link to register.  

We are always looking for sponsorships!  If your family or business would like to sponsor our team please contact us!

2018 SEASON:

5/29 - 8-10am - new swimmer "tryouts".  
All new Riptide members must come to the Skyline pool between 8-10am so that the coaches can assess swimming ability

5/30 - Riptide practice begins! 

2018 Practice Schedule:
7:00-8:00 Advanced (generally 12&up)

8:00-8:45 Intermediate (generally 9-11/12)

8:45-9:30 Beginners (generally 8&U)

**All NEW swim team members must pass a swimming test before first day of practice

PLEASE NOTE:  This is a rough guideline on practice groupings.  We will determine final team numbers in each age group after registration closes and may make adjustments. The coaching staff will be assessing ALL swimmers the first week of practice, so it is possible your child will be moved during that first week of practice.

- away meet (Ft. Collins) 7/15
