About us


The Starting Block is Wichita's premier swimming outfitter. With outstanding customer service, competitive pricing and a wide range of products, we aim to serve the swimming community in any way possible. No team is too small and no swimmer will be left behind.

Owned by Tammy Riffel, The Starting Block is now going into its 9th year of business. Working with teams and organizations from Oregon to New York, The Starting Block has grown and expanded quickly over the years. We travel to meets across the Midwest, so keep an eye out, we may be in your neck of the woods!

The Starting Block is a Speedo preferred retailer, and also offers products from TYR, Dolfin, Finis, and Adidas. Apparel, training aids, suits (competition, recreation, fitness) and lifeguard apparel are all available in-store and through orders. Contact us about elite competition suits as availability varies.

Feel free to stop in and say hello at either Wichita location or at any swim meet if we happen to be the vendor.
