CARA Swim Team 
 

YEAR-ROUND CARA SWIM TEAM IS HERE!

The Thornton Frogs Swim Team is in the CARA League (Colorado Association of Recreational Activities). The coaches work hard to instill strong fundamentals, good sportsmanship and knowledge of swim team culture.  Lots of time will be given to competitive stroke technique: however due to the nature of the swim team environment, individual attention will be limited.

Participants do not need competitive experience, but must be able to swim freestyle (crawl stroke) 25 years the full length of the pool) without stopping.

All swimmers new to the team, 12 years old and under must attend a tryout prior to swim team registration in order to participate on the team.  The tryouts consist of swimming freestyle the length of the pool.  Tryouts will be held on Thursday, August 9 at 7 p.m., at the Carpenter Recreation Center pool prior to registration on Wednesday, August 15.  Practice times will be Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the District 12 Veterans Memorial Aquatics Center from 5:30 - 7:45 p.m.

*Individual placement within this time frame will take place after registration.  Fees include meet participation and award ribbons.
