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
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. Please
contact us if you have questions!
