A Tradition of Team Pride and Personal Excellence Since 1965

The Arcadia Riptides Swim Club is one of the oldest active swim clubs in Southern California.  We continue a tradition of team pride and personal excellence started in 1965 by Arcadia High School's Hall of Fame Coach, Ray Petersen. 
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is governed by a Board of Directors who are committed to providing a safe, fun, and fair experience where children can learn the values of sportsmanship, goal setting, and friendship.

Our rigorous competitive training program will unleash your potential to help you reach your goals. We design our program to prevent crowded lanes so that swimmers do not get lost in the shuffle.

Unlike coach-owned clubs where it's all about quantity, our parent-volunteer Board focuses on quality that enables room for personalized and targeted training.
