Riptide Masters and Tri-Athlete Training Program (Ages 18 and older)
As of June 13th, we will not be holding practices at Bluewater Aquatic Center until early September. We will hold informal practices at Cascade Bay in Eagan from June 15th through August. The practices will not be coached and there is no practice fee for Riptide. Peggy or I will provide written practices for all of you who buy into a Cascade Bay membership. The Cardio Bay season pass for Eagan residents is $50 and $60 for non-residents. You will need to purchase your pass at the Eagan Community Center or Eagan Parks and Recreation Department (see link).
There is morning lap time offered 6:00 to 8:00 a.m. everyday except Wednesdays and possibly evening time as well. Peggy or I will be there most mornings at 6:00 a.m. with a workout in hand and a pace clock. We hope that you will join us!

September - May
The Riptide Team is committed to developing lifelong skills and healthy living. In keeping with this commitment, Riptide's Masters and Tri-athlete Training programs will provide 18+ year olds a vehicle to meet the individual needs of Master's Swimmers and Tri-athletes. Whether it is a desire to compete at a higher level, train for the swim leg of a triathlon or exercise to stay fit, we will offer workouts, coaching and support customized to reach those goals. YOU WILL BE COACHED! Our staff is always on deck and work just as hard at your success as you do. Our Masters-Tri Program is coached by Mike Parratto and Amy Parratto.
Our Masters practices are designed in a similar manner to our age group practices. We all swim practices in a "team" format. That means that all swimmers will start the practice at the same time! The workouts will have two to three different levels with either different distances or intervals. If you happen to arrive after the practice has begun, Mike or Amy will help you to slip right into wherever everyone else is in the set. If you need to leave early for work...no problem! Our goal is to create more of a "team" atmosphere which then adds to the level of motivation and quality of the practice. However, that being said, our Monday and Wednesday practices allow us to use all 8 lanes. We will leave 1-2 lanes open for those swimmers who would rather do their "own thing". Mike usually coaches Monday through Thursday and Amy on Saturday's. They are both committed to helping adult swimmers achieve their athletic and fitness goals. Additionally, Masters swimmers are encouraged to ask Mike and Amy for help with their technique, training and competition goals. We hope you join us!!!!
