Team Mission Statement

Our goal is to create a unique, high quality swim team that offers all of its members the opportunity to set goals and the means to achieve them.

Our coaching philosophy is to recognize the potential while acknowledging the differences in all individuals.

Through the use of expert instruction, proper repetition, and realistic goal-setting, each swimmer will achieve success.  Motivation, using enthusiastic support and encouragement, will ensure the athlete's continued commitment.  A strong team atmosphere will create a sense of belonging and a feeling of enjoyment.  Positive experiences during competition will develop an individual's ability to adapt to life's experience during competition will develop an individual's ability to adapt to life's circumstances while still reaching fulfillment.

Our vision is to produce highly skilled, motivated, and dedicated athletes of all abilities who aspire to reach their most successful level in swimming.

Delaware Riptide Aquatics Swim Team is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1996 to provide a safe, fun competitive swim program for children of all abilities, ages 5 to 18.  The team only trains in summer from May thru July. We participate in the Delmarva Swim Association.  

Swimmers must try out and be able to swim one length of the pool in freestyle with rotary breathing.

Delaware Riptide Aquatics Swim Team has had the pleasure to train at the beautiful Legends pool at Frog Hollow Golf Course.  The five-lane, 25-yard outdoor pool is located in The Legends golf course at 1 Whittington Way Middletown, Delaware 19709 .  All of the summer home dual meets are held here.
