The Colorado Springs Racquet Club Swim Team (CSRC Hurricanes) is a USA Swimming summer seasonal competitive swim team. We are part of the Pikes Peak Swim League (PPSL), which currently has six seasonal teams, and swims under the umbrella of Colorado Swimming Inc. We offer coaching and technique instruction for ages 5 to 18 and all abilities, and have recently added a 19 and over group for our team’s returning college age swimmers. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to state qualifier.
All of our coaches are registered with Colorado Swimming Inc., a division of USA Swimming. Our coaches have all the certifications and background checks necessary to be youth coaches of USA Swimming. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time. Our meets are conducted under USA Swimming rules, and use USA certified officials on deck.
Colorado Springs Racquet Club Swim Team is a nonprofit team, and is run by a parent Board of Directors in conjunction with our coaches and the club owners. We practice at the beautiful outdoor pool at Colorado Springs Racquet Club. Although we encourage membership to the club, as a year-round or summer member, we do have a limited number of non-member spots on the swim team. We cap our team membership at 115 swimmers.
Our Season begins, weather permitting, the last week of May, and concludes at the Seasonal State Championship Meet, held the first weekend of August. Seasonal USA Swimming teams from all over the state attend this big season-culminating event. We usually begin our weekly dual meets the first week of June, and are most often held on Wednesdays, with an occasional weekend meet. Please refer to our calendar for details.
We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team. We pride ourselves on the family feel of our team, with wonderful parent support, and swimmers who come back year after year. We have many swimmers who are children and grandchildren of previous team members! Thank you for your interest in our team. We are looking forward to meeting you.
