RIPTIDE RUNNING CAPE COD is a competitive youth running team for ages 10* - 18 here on Cape Cod, led by Head Coach Justin Torrellas (USATF-certified and former Team USA member - modern pentathlon) and his team of experienced coaches.
Our two-week Fall I session begins on Tuesday, September 1st, 2020 and ends on Friday, September 11th, 2020. Present state regulations limit group size to 25 athletes, and this will be our signup cap. Meeting time is 4:00 PM, three days per week: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.
IMPORTANT: Because athletes expressed a desire for a wider variety of scenery and terrain, this group will meet at a variety of locations in the Mid and Lower Cape (preliminary schedule here). We will attempt to have at least one track session per week, and are awaiting permission from DY to use the facility after Labor Day. Meeting locations will be announced before the start of the session.
Our program depends on state regulations for youth sports, which are continually evolving and dependent on progress against the COVID-19 pandemic.
While we are confident that our fall plan meets current requirements and ensures the safety of Riptide participants and coaches, we may need to modify our operations to comply with ever-changing state and local requirements.
We may be required to suspend or cancel practice with very little notice.
Should Riptide be required to suspend practices for an extended period, we will endeavor to come up with an equitable policy for refunds or credit toward a future session.
Riptide welcomes any athlete ready to make the commitment to become a better runner. However, because this is a short-term trail running program, we must require that participants be able to run at least 3 miles without stopping or walking.
Further. Faster. Stronger.
Riptide Running Cape Cod believes running is for everyone. Running fosters community while simultaneously fostering individual growth.
Whether your goal is fun and friendship, fitness for other sports, setting a personal record or competing at the national level, we will guide your every step.
Our focus and goal is personal improvement, targeting novice through elite-level runners, with a vision to grow and develop Cape Cod's youth running community, cultivating physical and mental stamina, teamwork and personal excellence.
