WELCOME TO THE GENESEE SWIM TEAM WEBSITE!
















Team Registration is Open!

Register HERE for the 2015 GMT season.

Team fees will be increasing to $250 for first swimmer and $230 each additional swimmer. Team Fees will include a team shirt as well as the kick-off BBQ and Awards Night activities.

 
Registration Deadlines:
Registration is open through June 10th. If you register before May 13 - Your team shirt is included in the registration and you are able to select your size.  If you register after May 13th - swimmers will only be able to pick from the shirts sizes we have on hand until we run out. This is because we need to place our order on May 13th so that we have them in time for the Kick-Off BBQ. There is  a $25 late registration fee for anyone who registers after May 29th.

Need to order a team swim suit? 
Contact Colorado Swim Shop #303-545-2090 and tell them you are swimming with Genesee.  They are happy to help you!

New This Year: 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 8 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.  

This season we will be tracking volunteer points in the new swim portal. 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 fee 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. 

New Referral Coupon

We are offering a one time $20 referral coupon during registration - for new family/swimmer referrals.  
To obtain the coupon code, please email geneseeswimteam@gmail.com and proved the name/email address of the family you are referring. We will email  you back with the coupon code.  NOTE: This must be done prior to registration so you can receive the discount during registration. Also, please reminder the new family to list you during registration under "how did you hear about us".

June 2nd-First meet at Wheatridge

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.
