Long Course Season Begins

Our first Long Course Meet is TOPS at DU 4/25-4/27 (FRI - SUN).

The LC season runs through the end of July/beginning of August.  If you wish to swim with Hurricanes through the summer you will be asked to register again in May for June and July. If you are not swimming through the summer you may participate in the upcoming LC Meet (as long as the coaches fell you are ready for a long course meet) and practice with the team through the end of May.

If you are planning on participating in a summer swim team please note that some summer team rules prohibit you from also participating with a year round team. Check with the summer swim program if you are trying to do both.

We are in desperate need for one or two parents to take on the role of team photographer for the younger kids (10&U and 11/12s).  If you can commit to this position for a period of time please email the volunteer coordinators.  We have no photos from the last few meets because Caryn Pearson cannot be expected to go to meets her teenagers do not participate in.
