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-years (two lenghts) in a competitive, correct freestyle stroke and also exhibit the ability to swim for 45-minutes in a coached setting. 

Tryouts are held on an individual basis.

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

Thornton CARA swim team is currently full. As openings occur, we will contact individuals from the waitlist. If your child is 12 and under and gets called off the waitlist, individual tryouts will be held at that time.

Cost is $104.00 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.

*Practices are subject to change due to District 12 high school swimming.
