Join The Thunderbolts

COVID-19 UPDATE:  New state and county COVID-19 safety restrictions around capacity and water training have reduced our ability to provide tryouts to new team members.  Depending on the squad you can join we may have to provide a waiting time for placement.  If interested, please email [email protected] with the name, age, and ability of your swimmer so we can track our openings. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding and thank you for your interest!
