The Rockford Riptide competitive swim team will host its sixth annual Fall Fiesta Meet on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 14-15, at Rockford High School’s pool. The Fall Fiesta meet is a USA Swimming sanctioned event.

More than 400 West Michigan swimmers from Riptide and other USA Swimming teams and clubs will compete in the event. Spectators are welcome to watch the competition from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

“Our Fall Fiesta event is a great opportunity to see Riptide in action,” said Riptide Coach Mike Cutler. “Our team is off to a strong start for the season and we’re proud of our swimmers’ performance at the Holland ‘Boo Bash’ event last month.”

Riptide’s purpose is to introduce children to the benefits of competitive swimming and encourage swimmers

to reach their highest level of potential in and out of the water while demonstrating leadership and sportsmanship skills. For more information on Riptide, visit www.riptide.org.
