The Summit Area YMCA Swim Team is a youth swim team with year-round training opportunities. Daily training takes place in our 6-lane 25-yard pool, complete with state-of-the-art Colorado Timing System. We participate as a team in YMCA dual meets and YMCA championships. In addition to YMCA swimming, we are also a registered USA Swimming team. USA meets provide additional competitive meets for our swimmers.
Our philosophy is a cooperative effort of swimmers, coaches, professional YMCA staff, and parents. Each play an important role in maintaining and improving our program, for the benefit of all involved.
We pride ourselves in helping our athletes develop their talents as well as growing in values that can be utilized in all aspects of their lives—not just in the pool. Our low Coach-to-Swimmer ratio allows coaches to individualize training techniques to best suit each swimmer.
We encourage all team parents to participate in the Summit Seals Parents Organization, known as SSPO. This group of dedicated and hardworking parents form the backbone of our organization. They assist the coaches, other parents, and—most importantly—the swimmers.
