Team Sopris is a year-round swim team that serves all levels of interested athletes. We are a family friendly team and strive to provide a safe and supportive child protective environment. We have a highly trained coaching staff, who have been coaching competitive swimming for many years. We are registered with USA Swimming and Colorado Swimming Inc. and are members of the Western Slope League. We train at the Glenwood Springs Community Center and compete in swim meets throughout the state and region.
The Team Sopris program offers six practice levels: Discovery, Challenge 1, Challenge 2, CUDA, Junior, Senior.Team Sopris also offers a High School training group and a Masters swim program. After joining the team, a youth swimmer will be evaluated by the coaching staff and placed in their appropriate practice group. Discovery is the beginning level of our program, and the proficiency of the swimmers increases at each level with corresponding increases in the practice time and intensity.
Team Sopris offers a year-round swim program for anyone who lives in the Roaring Fork Valley and nearby communities from Vail to Rifle. The team exists to provide a family friendly culture, striving to provide a safe and supportive child protective environment. We offer the opportunity for youth and adults to learn about and participate in competitive swimming. Our goal is for every swimmer to be prepared to compete to the maximum of his or her ability, and to have fun doing so.

Mavalanche Invite January 7-9, 2022
Coach Bob thoughts -
Great swim meet this past weekend. Our younger swimmers have a marvelous pair of senior swimmers to observe and model: Bennett Jones and Amelie Ogilby.
The way you train is the way you will race. Bennett and Amelie both train extremely well. Therefore, they race extremely well. They swim the most challenging lineup of events and simply dominate them. Explicitly, here is how the girls train.
1) They rarely miss workout.
2) They get in the pool on time.
3) They make their workout goal times given by coach. 4) They don’t complain.
5) They do this every day. That’s the way to get it done!
Our younger swimmers had a number of “big drops,” defined as lowering their best time by over 10 seconds. (Mark, Bella, Kate, Claire, Tatum and Timber) We also grew in knowledge and awareness of what it takes to perform successfully. We did a great job of cheering each other on, an indication of our fantastic family and fun atmosphere. We scored more than any other team’s women and finished second overall in team scoring. Keep up the good work.
