CARA Swim Team (year-round)

Our recreation swim team, affiliated with the Colorado Parks and Recreation Association, is an excellent opportunity to introduce youth, ages 6-18, to the fun and excitement of competitive swimming.  Our coaches work hard to teach skills and technique that will improve efficiency in the water.  They strive to promote competition as well as sportsmanship.  Participants don't have to have competitive experience, but must be able to swim a full 50-yards (two lengths) in a competitive, correct freestyle stroke and also exhibit the ability to swim for 45-minutes in a coached setting. 

​Fall Season:
September- December
​Winter Season:
January - April
Summer Season:
June - July

Thornton CARA swim team is currently full. At this time we will NOT be taking anyone off the waiting list or holding try-outs. The team is currently full with the COVID restrictions in place. We will re-evaluate that with the winter season. 

Cost is $110.00 per season

No refunds will be given two weeks after the program begins.

Parents will be required to volunteer for at least one home meet per season or an additional $25 fee will be added.
Due to COVID-19, we will not be holding traditional swim meets at this time.
