WELCOME TO THE GENESEE SWIM TEAM WEBSITE!
The Annual Splash-4-Cash is THIS WEEK!!
It will take place (instead of traditional practice) on Monday, July 14
during evening practice and Tuesday, July 15th during morning practice.
For over 30 year it has been a team tradition to dedicate one morning practice and one evening practice to raise money for the Genesee Fire Department and the team. This year we will use money raised to continue to pay for the new handicap lift at Foothills Pool. We will also donate half of the funds we raise to the Genesee Fire Department. Last year we raised over $1500 and we where able to donated over $750 to the fire department. If every swimmer raised just $20 we would exceed our goal.
This is how it works: Talk to your swimmers about participating. Swimmers should start contacting Family & Friends for pledges this week. Traditionally pledges are done an individual - per-length basis. Swimmers are given 1 hour to swim as many lengths they can, however they want. Coaches will help keep track. Overall our team goal is to swim over 1000 lengths of foothills pool!
Remember - this is truly just for fun, but if your little ones need motivation, last year’s top fundraisers received a ride on the Genesee fire truck to school!

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.
