Hurricane Force Hits Two States This Weekend!
The team is making waves  at meets in both Fort Collins and in Sarasota, Florida, this weekend.  Good luck to all our swimmers!!  

Zone 2 Meets - July 15-17
The last Long Course meet for many of our swimmers will be the weekend of July 15-17. There are actually two meets, so be sure to check the Meets page and entries to be sure of the location at which your child will be swimming.  Maps to both pools (Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center and Lowry) have been posted on the Directions to Meets page of the website.

Long Course Championship Meets
From July 19 until mid-August, we move into the championship meet phase of Long Course: 14 & under Long Course State; Sectionals; Senior Nationals; Junior Nationals; and Zones.  Thanks to our amazing coaching staff, and the hard work of our swimmers, the Hurricanes will be well-represented at all of these meets. 
 
Welcome to Ashley and Renee!
You may have noticed two new faces on deck - the latest additions to our coaching staff.  We are very fortunate to have Ashley Krause and Renee Gutberlet on staff.  Renee just completed her first year in college, and is with us for the summer.  Ashley recently graduated from Northern Arizona University with a B.S in Athletic Training and is currently completing her Masters in Secondary Education.  

Busy, Busy Summer!
We know that everyone has a lot going on in these beautiful summer months and appreciate the strong commitment our families have to swimming and to the team.  Thank you for making Hurricanes swimming a part of your summer plans!
