Swim Team

Blue Dolphins and Aquaforce Swim Teams

The Southwest YMCA offers year-round competitive swimming for kids ages 5 and up through two programs: 
  • Blue Dolphins – These teams teach new and casual swimmers the fundamentals of competitive swimming. Swimmers improve their strokes, learn back and front flip turns, and build their endurance and strength.
  • Aquaforce – These teams provide high-performance training for kids who are interested and committed to advanced competitive swimming. Teams are sanctioned by USA Swimming and thus meet approved criteria for rules, officials, timing, distances, and coach certification. (Membership in USA Swimming is required.)
With all Southwest Y swim teams:
  • Practices take place at the Southwest Y, and meets are held at various Y locations
  • Financial assistance and scholarships may be available
  • Schedules are flexible – Swimmers can start and stop the program as needed

Swim at Southwest!

Registration is now open for both Blue Dolphins and Aquaforce teams. For more information on schedules and rates, contact Correen at 303 761-7530 or ccool@denverymca.org
