The Avon Swim Team Programs seek to provide both recreational and competitive swim opportunities by offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. It is our objective to provide every swimmer an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to national competitor. Our coaches will ensure that time spent will be quality and productive time.
Swim Team Prep
This program is designed for swimmers ages 5-12 that have successfully completed our LTS 3 course and desire to advance their swimming skills and stroke technique in a lap pool format. Groups may be up to 15 swimmers and practice for 45 minutes to one hour, twice per week.
Recreation Level Swim Team
This program is geared to swimmers ages 6-18 that are interested in advancing the swimming skills and stroke technique in all four swimming strokes. This program provides an introduction to swimming competition and racing technique. Practice lasts 1.5 hours with workouts 3-4 times per week. Three local swim meets are offered during the summer swim season.
USA Swimming Competitive Team
This highly competitive travel team is designed for the swimmer that desires to train year-round and compete at the State Level 1 to potentially national level. Swimmers are well coached, and highly disciplined and well versed in all strokes and rules of competition. The Recreation Department is vested in the success of each individual involved in the program. Coaches will track a swimmer’s success through detailed recordkeeping of swim meet race times, and records of each participant’s progress in our Learn to Swim progression will be on file. Our program will be fully managed by on site coaches and administrators, leaving multiple conduits for parent feedback and immediate answers to questions and concerns.
This team is an integral member of the Western Slope League and across the State, taking pride in meeting parent volunteer requirements at meets. Swimmers are represented by USA Swimming certified coaches at all practices and swim meets.
