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 David Lee 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.


For more information on schedules and rates, contact David Lee.
