WELCOME TO THUNDER SWIMMING!

As a club, we are dedicated to giving our swimmers the best opportunity for achieving their potential and swimming at the highest level of competition. Our goal is to provide each and every member the best environment to improve their swimming skills and achieve success. 

RMT swimmers compete in meets that are held locally, across Colorado, and on a regional, national and international level. We have a partnership with the City of Wheat Ridge and most practices are conducted at Wheat Ridge Recreation Pool, with some groups utilizing 6th Ave West Pool as well.

We are glad you have chosen competitive swimming as a sport and RMT for your child to be a member. We are proud of our team and each swimmer?s accomplishments. We are looking forward to getting to know you and your swimmer. If you have any questions, feel free to talk with your swimmer?s coach, or the head coach.

T.E.A.M -Together Everyone Achieves More. At RMT, we understand that a group of athletes working together toward a common goal will help each individual achieve more than they thought possible. We promote team unity and respect for all members of the team. If we all help each other and support each other, great things will happen!

RMT does it's best to keep fees low and tries to keep our parent commitment low as well. We don't host meets and we don't have family volunteer hours each family is committed to. We also don't do fundraising for the team. We do fundraising for community projects and programs, instead.  Our fees are competitive, a little higher than some teams, and lower than most.

A reminder to view your invoice will be sent to you a few days prior to the end of the month but if meet fees or other charges for items such as swim caps go into your acct. after the reminder is sent and before the 1st of the month, then the amount invoiced could differ.
 
Communication in our swim program is vital. In addition to the website, each swimmer is assigned a file folder in their group box located by the RMT office. Earned meet awards are placed into the swimmer?s folder. Swimmers should check their folders weekly.
 
Our chief method of communication is email and the website. Weekly updates, meet flyers, meeting notices, equipment order forms, etc. are all available electronically on the RMT website so it is vital we have accurate email addresses. The website is the best way to keep up-to-date on team handouts and activities.
