Masters Swimming

Joining our 2012 state champion Masters Swim team is a great way to improve your fitness, have fun and take part in friendly competition.

Our Masters Swim team—the Aquaholics—is one of the largest Masters Swim programs in the Rocky Mountain region. We welcome all competitive, fitness and triathlon swimmers ages 18 and older.

The Aquaholics offer excellent coaching, member swim clinics, an Olympic-sized pool and the greatest number of practices in the Denver metro area. Other membership benefits include:

  • coached, competitive workouts that let you set your own pace
  • swim sessions in an Olympic-sized pool (Depending on the pool’s configuration, there are 17, 25-yard lanes, or eight, 50-meter, extra-wide lanes.)
  • flexible workout schedules and start dates

The Masters Swim team is part of a larger national organization known as United States Masters Swimming (USMS) and at the state level, COMSA. Ability levels include beginners to national champion swimmers and world-class triathletes.
