Colusa Swim Team ready to make a splash

The Colusa City Council last week signed an agreement with the Colusa Swim Team to allow them use of the City Pool for training, practices, and meetings.

The Colusa Swim Team, now called the Cyclones, plan to surface after seven years and the recent COVID-19 pandemic, which kept them from getting into the water for the 2020 season later than they wanted.

Colusa Swim Team rebuilt the program with a blowout fundraiser late last summer, and is excited for the return of program.

“So far we have 28 kids registered across all our age ranges, and we’ve been putting together our COVID plan that is recommended by USA Swimming,” said Melissa Yerxa Ortiz.

The Colusa Swim Team was founded in the 1950s, and was an active group of swimmers, ages 5 to 18, that competed against teams throughout the region. The team, previously known as the Cudas, last competed in 2013.

The agreement with the city for the use of the pool is for two years and will run until May 31, 2022. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the format of the swim program this year will be modified from a traditional season to focus on skill building, clinics, stroke development, and just having fun.

The team hopes to resume competitive swimming next year, Yerxa said.

The Swim Team is still accepting registration. For more information, visit colusaswimteam.swimtopia.com.

The Colusa Swim Team also plans to host its second annual fundraiser “Just Keep Swimming” on Aug. 22, at the Colusa Pool, located at 933 Parkhill St.
