About Us
Welcome to the Arcadia Riptides Swim Club.  A member of USA Swimming and Southern California Swimming, ARSC is a non-profit, competitive age group swim club offering high-quality professional coaching and technique instruction for boys and girls ages 6 - 18.  The goal of our team is to provide every member with an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to Junior Olympic competitor.  Since 1965, our mission has been "Team Pride, Personal Excellence." 

Practices are held in the evenings, Monday through Friday, from 6 pm to 8 pm at Arcadia High School.  Meets are held one weekend per month at locations within 30 minutes of Arcadia.  Tryouts are available by appointment.

We are one of a few clubs that offer a developmental, non-competitive program, called Junior Riptides, that  augment our long-standing competitive program by offering beginner or casual swimmers who know how to swim but are not ready for competition or do not know how to swim the four competitive strokes.  Swimmers must be water safe and know how to swim at least one stroke.

Come see why we are the happiest club on earth and why our families love being part of a fun, caring, and supportive community.  Because we are a non-profit club, we are able to offer a personal experience by keeping our pool from over-crowding.  It's one of the reasons why we have so much Riptide Pride!
