GREAT WOLF INVITE: Congratulations to all our swimmers who competed at the Great Wolf Huff “n” Puff Invite at the University of Minnesota. Riptide swimmers knocked out a ton of fantastic swims over the four day meet…best times, champ times, zone times and even a few meet records! The results are loaded into TU. Way to go everyone!!!

RIPTIDE JUMP INTO JUNE INVITE: We still have many volunteer jobs that need to be filled for our meet on June 8th. If your child is swimming in the meet, it is important for you to lend a hand. We cannot run swim meets without parent volunteers!

TEAM SUIT REMINDER: All Riptide swimmers are required to wear the team suit. This is not optional! Recently, we have seen several swimmers at meets not properly attired. Please be sure your swimmer has what they need. Thank you!

TEAM BANQUET PICTURES: Pictures from our team banquet are posted on our TU social feed. If you would like any of the pictures, please contact Coach Olga.
