Fourth of July Bake Sale
It is a tradition for the Swim Team to conduct the Bake Sale at the July 4th Celebration in Genesee. Traditionally, this is a great fundraiser for our team.
Every family should plan on participating by either working the event, baking items for the sale and/or donating $10 so that we can purchase items for the Bake Sale. A huge thanks to Cara Schurman who has volunteered to coordinate the Bake Sale..We will have an envelope at practice starting Thursday to collect cash donations. We will send a follow-up email to folks letting them know where to drop-off bake sale items ahead of time as many families have said they will be traveling for the long weekend.  Sign up to volunteer in Active!

Genesee Mountain Thunder has been committed to providing our community with a strong summer swimming program for years. The members of our team learn the aspects of the sport of swimming, teamwork and accountability. We have a lot of fun during the summer and welcome children of all abilities up to 18 years of age.

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.
