Hilltoppers Swimming

USA Swimming Gold Medal ClubFounded in 1955, the University of Denver Hilltoppers (TOPS) Swim Team has a winning tradition. TOPS is a silver medal club and is ranked in the country’s top 20 swim clubs for team performance.

We provide the fundamentals of technique and training to our developing age-group swimmers, and provide opportunities for our senior athletes to excel at the national level.

We have swimmers from age six to postgraduate and offer training groups ranging from developmental introduction to preparation for national and international competitions.

Swimmers interested in joining Hilltoppers for the 2014-15 season must attend our fall clinics in September.
