Swim Teams

The Schlessman Family YMCA offers year-round swimming for kids ages 6 and up.

We teach and train all levels of swimmers while emphasizing individual progress, family participation, good sportsmanship, individual integrity and team play.

Swim teams are organized at two levels:

  • Competitive
  • Pre-Competitive

Competitive Team (Ages 8+)

Ideal for intermediate to advanced swimmers. Swimmers must be able to swim 50 yards front crawl and 25 yards backstroke non-stop. Swimmers participate in monthly meets against metro Denver teams. Try-outs must be performed before registration, contact Dana to schedule try-out.

Pre-Competitive Team (Ages 6+)

Ideal for entry-level, novice swimmers. Learn the fundamentals of competitive swimming. Focus on breaststroke, butterfly, and starts and turns. Improve freestyle and backstroke. Participant can choose to swim in meets.
