  • What is the difference between Seasonal vs. Year Round registration?
  • Seasonal swimmers are limited to the amount of time they may compete each year to remain eligible to compete in seasonal championships. A seasonal swimmer will typically compete in the summer with a summer club and may compete in the fall with another team. Once January 1st comes, the swimmer may not compete until May 1st. A year round swimmer may compete year round.

  • We are from out of town, can my swimmer drop in to swim with your team while we are here?
  • Of course, we would love to have you. Swimmers must be current USA Swimming members. To arrange a drop in swim with one of our groups, please email swimteam@pikespeakathletics.com.

  • High School Swimmers
  • High school aged athletes who are preparing for the high school season or may want to swim with a club team during season are welcome with Pikes Peak Athletics. These athletes may be asked to attend meets during high school season depending on their goals. Swimmers will practice with either Group 4 or 5. These athletes should purchase a pull buoy, paddles, snorkel, short and long training fins and a mesh bag to hold their equipment.

    Price: same monthly fees as the group the athlete will be training with. Charging can be suspended until athlete returns from high school and there are no re-joining fees (if athlete chooses to not swim with the club team during season).
