Riptides Swim Team



Combining the environment of a great training facility, experienced coaching staff, supportive parents and hard working swimmers, our Gleason Family YMCA Riptides Swim Team is living their motto everyday:


Over the course of the season, swimmers will have ample opportunity to increase their mental, physical and emotional abilities that will carry over into their daily lives out of the swimming pool.  As a member of this cohesive group, swimmers will develop social skills that will last a lifetime.  Team members will also experience successes that in turn will foster increased self-esteem.

This is a co-ed, competitive and seasonal swim team running from 9/19/2022 – 3/10/2023. Evaluations for all swimmers will be held 9/12/2022 – 9/16/2022 between 5:00-7:30 pm. All swimmers must be evaluated prior to starting practice so the coaching staff can place them appropriately. 

Practices are geared to build swimmers’ endurance and improve technique while developing their social and physical potential.  Interested swimmers must have good command of Freestyle and Backstroke with rudimentary or better Breaststroke and Butterfly. 

Attendance is required for a minimum of 3 practices per week to qualify for competitive events.  


Please reach out to our coaching staff at GFYRiptides@ymcasc.org for more information.
