Rise and shine- it's morning practice time! Through July we will have morning practice on Tuesday and Thursdays from 6:30-8:00am. Once school starts back in mid-August, we will still swim Tuesday and Thursdays, but from 6:00-7:30am.

Riptides!! Yes, we're swimmers! Yes, running is hard! Yes, we're doing it! (OPTIONALLY!) Starting next week, every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:15 we will meet at the track for extra credit running! Emphasis will be on injury prevention, technique, breathing, not so much on distance. If you are currently recovering from an injury that would be made WORSE by running, please heal first, THEN you can come run ;) This is open to ALL Riptides practice groups! Bring water, running shoes, and happy feet :) Side note on running shoes......
