The Long Course Season for the Hurricanes has begun.  Our first LC Meet is The Tops Open the weekend of April 26th.

Summer season is defined differently depending on what you are referring to. Here's what you need to know:

  • Summer with Hurricanes has Long Course championship events for which qualifying meets are starting now. But the Hurricanes define payment seasons in line with the school calendar. 
  • Long Course Season has started and Hurricanes summer season will start June 3 with a new practice schedule, which you can find on the website.
  • If you plan to swim throughout June & July with the Hurricanes you will need to register for the summer months even if you have registered with the team previously.  You go in as a returning member when registration opens May 15th
  • Many summer meets have entry deadlines in the near future.  So you must tell Coach Jeff now if you are not staying on the Hurricanes during June & July or you may find yourself charged for entry fees  when you don't even think you are on the team for the summer months.  The team pays these fees in advance when it submits entries. As you know, unless told otherwise your child is entered in meets appropriate for his/her level and you are responsible for paying the fees back to the team.
  • If you are going to stay with the Hurricanes in June & July but are traveling & will miss a meet, the same meet entry procedure applies: check the team calendar & meet calendar on the website & be sure to notify Coach Jeff ahead of the deadline if your child is not attending a meet.
  • If you want to swim the summer months with a summer club like Mount Vernon or Genesee you are not allowed to practice or compete with your year round team after May 15th - that is their rules established by the Colorado Summer State Meet Bylaws. Summer Club teams get severely fined if that governing body finds out someone broke the rules. If you have questions ask your summer club team for further information. There is a meet on 5/17 which your child will be entered in as part of the year round season, but you can't swim in it if you plan to go to a summer club.  Deadline to notify Coach is this week!!
  • As far as the Hurricanes are concerned you may swim with us through the end of May based on your existing registration if you do not plan on swiming with the team during the summer.
