Please Note:
1) Last year folks found it worked best to register on a lap-top or desk-top - we received errors in testing when using an iPad, iphone, tablet - etc..
2) It is a good idea to add in your spouse/significant other or an individual you want to link to the account as a second contact when you are registering. Last year it was hard to link in additional contacts after the fact and proved to be a problem when trying to register for meets/volunteer points.
3)We have 5 Waivers that need to be signed electronically this year. (Genesee Liability, Genesee Photo Release, National Parks and Recs, Volunteer Acknowledgement and the Active Network Waiver.) Nothing has changed with these waivers.
Important Registration Deadlines:
Registration is open now until June 10th. Due to liability reasons, You must be registered to attend practices. We do issue refunds by June 10th if your swimmer is not enjoying the team.
There is  a $25 late registration fee for anyone who registers after May 28th.

Volunteer Points / Volunteer Buy-Out Option / Team Swim Portal
As you all know, GMT is  a parent-run organization and we rely heavily on our family volunteers. Over the 10 weeks of  our summer season -  there is a great deal of volunteering that goes on behind the scenes to keep the team running smoothly.   
We count on our families to volunteer primarily at our meets, but we also need help coordinating extra activities which build team spirit and add to the fun and excitement for the swimmers.  
Volunteer Points are in the Swim portal which is linked to the primary contact information (email, birthday/etc,) We ask that each family fulfills 15 volunteer points throughout the season. If this is something you are not able or willing to do, you will have the ability to "Opt Out' of your volunteer requirements during the registration process.
The charge for "opting out" is $175 per family. Ideally we would like all families to volunteer, but we do understand that in some cases it is just not feasible. Families are given a number of options to fulfill their points. If your family has not fulfilled their point requirement, your active account will be charged $15 for each outstanding volunteer point.

Practice times:

Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri morning 7:30-9am for age 11 & up
Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri morning 9:00-10:00am for age 10 & under

The Genesee Mountain Thunder swim team consists of children ages 5-18 who practice daily at the Foothills neighborhood pool in the beautiful Genesee mountains of Golden.  We are part of the Foothills Swim Association (FSA) and participate in organized summer swim meets with other FSA teams in Jefferson County from Memorial Day through the end of July.  We have been active with FSA swimming for over 30 years.

Genesee Mountain Thunder, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, was established solely to provide children in Genesee and the surrounding  communities with the opportunity to develop their swimming skills, to promote good sportsmanship in competitive aquatics, and to encourage exercise and build character in a fun summer team environment. 
The swim team is run by a volunteer parent board. 


We swim at the Foothills Pool Genesee located at 1985 Foothills Drive South in Genesee.
