NorCal Swim Shop will be at the pool this Friday for suit fittings for those that missed the last one. They will be at the pool from around 4:15 pm until whenever they are needed. Senior suits will be available to be purchased, so be prepared to purchase that day.


Coach Kyle put together the Almaden Riptides Short Course Team Records and posted them on the office window. Check them out!


The new time standards are a little confusing so here is what they mean:


  •  B is still a B time

  •  BB is similar to what was the old A times

  •  A will qualify for a new age group championship meet that is coming in the future

  •  AA will eventually be JO Times

  •  AAA is Far Western Times


There is a Cranberry Classic Travel Meet meeting on Wednesday, October 15, at 7 pm at the pool.  If your swimmer is interested in attending this fun meet, please plan on attending.  The meeting will be short.  It is really for us to get a better sense of who is interested, so that we can finalize our plans.


Almaden Riptides apparel ordering will take place soon.  We will have samples of the items you can purchase available at the pool and people there to assist you with your orders starting next week.


Save the Date for Wednesday, October 29, from 4-6 pm.  Our social committee is putting together some funHalloween activities for our swimmers.  This celebration will take place alongside our regular practice schedule.
