Riptides Intramural Swim Team
The Riptides Swim Program is designed for swimmers who want to swim multiple times per week or for those swimmers interested in improving technique in order to qualify for the Rapids Swim Team. Swimmers participating in Riptides must be at the skill level Stroke Development and above. Swim evaluations are also conducted to determine admission to the program. This Program focuses on stroke technique in all four competitive strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Butterfly) and is a great way to increase cardio endurance. Led by qualified coaches, the Riptides introduces youth to a swim team environment. Swimmers are required to swim at least two days per week and can swim up to five days per week with flexibility to choose the days you want to swim! Contact the Aquatics Director at the Five Points Branch, if you have any questions regarding this program.
