Summer Thunder

SUMMER THUNDER REGISTRATION IS FAST APPROACHING!

Summer Thunder is a fun, mid-season meet with many swimmers who qualify.



  • Swimmers 12 & Under must achieve a qualifying time; swimmers 13 years and older are invited to participate regardless of seed time.
  • For this meet, a time achieved in time trials or any of the first 3 meets can be used to achieve the qualifying time.
  • All swimmers must have a time, there are no “NT’s” (No Times) accepted.
  • This meet only accepts the first 1250 swimmers entered. Once it hits the 1250 swimmers, all remaining teams are denied. We will do our best to be entered into this meet. In any event we are not accepted, we will return any collected fees.
  • The 3 event bonus rule does apply. Once a swimmer qualified in 3 individual events they are eligible to enter as many individual events they want. The 50 Free & 100 free are the exception. All swimmers in these events must have achieved the time standard for the event in order to enter.
