Our recreational swim team, affiliated with the Colorado Parks and Recreation Association, is an excellent opportunity to introduce youth, ages 6 - 18, to the fun and excitement of competitive swimming. Our coaches, will work hard to teach skills and technique that will imparove your efficiency in the water. They will strive to promote competition as well as sportsmanship.

All swimmers new to the team, age 12 and under, must pass a tryout before they become eligible to register for the team. PASSING THE TRYOUT DOES NOT GUARANTEE A SPOT ON THE TEAM. Participants need not have competitive experience, but must be able to swim a full 50 yards (2 lengths) in a competitive, correct freestyle stroke and also exhibit the ablility to swim for 45 minutes in a coached setting. There will be two tryouts at the Carpenter Recreation Center for each session of swim team.

Practices are held at Park Village Pool, Monday - Thursday, 6:30 - 9:30 a.m. Fridays throughout the season will be used for relay practices, team pictures and our anual swim fundraisers.
