An Update From Coach Nate
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.
WELCOME TO THE GENESEE SWIM TEAM WEBSITE!
Since many of our families are already starting to plan summer camps and vacations. For this reason we are sending along the key dates for the summer season.
We are hosting three home meets again this summer - two of which are pretty early in the season. Mark these on your calendar as it is Coach Nate's Goal to have over 65 swimmers (or over 75% of the team) at each of our home meets.
In addition, there is a new "fun" league meet added to the schedule called the Freestyle Frenzy on June 11th. This will be similar to the AAC relay meet, but instead of being relays - it will be 100% based on Freestyle events. Although most of the events don't count toward a swimmers time, it should be fun to watch folks swim events they don't normally get to (i.e.. 25 free for upper division).
Finally, please note that our Team Pictures are earlier this year (Friday, June 16) so that we can coincide with our home meet and swimmer breakfast.
13 and up from 7:15-8:00am
9-12 from 8:15-9:30am
8 and under 9:15-10:00am
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.
