YES! There will be a 2021 Season!
Although we don't yet know exactly what our 2021 swim season will look like under COVID protocols we are excited to have a swim season this summer! We have a new Head Coach, a new website and we're excited to get in the water this summer. We have posted as much information as we have so far so please check out the website. Registration is now OPEN!
What We Know So Far
THINGS ARE CHANGING AGAIN. AS OF 4/17/21 THIS INFORMATION WILL PROBABLY BE CHANGING. PLEASE BEAR WITH US.
We will doing all 5 Dual Meets as "virtual meets." That means that all 5 dual meets will be held at our home pool with only our team present. The Dam West HOA has graciously agreed to let us use the pool for all of our meets as long as we are finished by 10:00 am when the pool opens to the neighborhood. Right now we are planning on our meets running on Saturday mornings from 7:30 am - 10:00 am. We are hopeful that is enough time to get through most of the events, if not all. It also means we will cut events if necessary to end at 10:00am.
Families will be able to sit in the parking lot and greenbelt areas but there will be strict limitations on how many people can be inside the pool area. Right now only swimmers, coaches, volunteers and officials will be allowed in the pool area. It is our hope and plan to be able to Livestream the meets so that families can watch the events.
Division C has decided to wait on Prelims and Championships until the season is underway to determine how things are working. So those meets may be virtual or may be held at an away pool.
There is still much planning to do and we will post updates as the season takes more shape. Thank you for your interest and your patience!
Who We Are
We are a summer-only swim team nestled under the Mountain Hi Swim League (MHSL) Division C. We have a 5 lane, 25 yard pool. We have 5 regular season meets, Prelims, Championships and a final All-Stars meet (for those who qualify.) For 2021 our season begins May 17 and ends July 17 with All-Stars ending July 24.
Other than the coaches, the team is run 100% with volunteers. Summer league swimming runs smoothly when every family helps out. Each family is responsible for volunteering to work at each of the meets they attend. There are numerous ways to volunteer.
Our registration is open to children ages 5 - 18. (Age as of June 1.) They must be able to swim the full length of the pool on their own. Trial periods are available. (Please see the "Team Fees" page for details.) The swim team is open to ALL - you do not need to live in the Dam West community to participate.
Our home pool is located in the Dam West neighborhood community at the southwest corner of Peoria and Yale Ave in Aurora, CO.
