Age Group USA Swim TeamThis highly competitive travel team is designed for the swimmer that desires to train year-round and compete at the State Level. Swimmers are well coached, and highly disciplined and well versed in all strokes and rules of competition. The Recreation Department is vested in the success of each individual involved in the program. Coaches will track a swimmer’s success through detailed record keeping of swim meet race times, and records of each participant’s progress. The age group team is designed for younger swimmers who still need a bit more emphasis on stroke work and technique, without training quite as much yardage as our Senior USA team. Practice lasts an hour and 15 minutes, five times a week. Our program will be fully managed by on site coaches and administrators, leaving multiple conduits for parent feedback and immediate answers to questions and concerns.
Senior USA Swim Team
This team is an integral member of the Western Slope League and across the State, taking pride in meeting parent volunteer requirements at meets. Swimmers are represented by USA Swimming certified coaches at all practices and swim meets.
