Team Sopris is a year-round swim team that serves all levels of interested athletes.  We have a  highly trained coaching staff, who has been coaching competitive swimming for several 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.

Masters

Team Sopris provides training for adult swimmers ages 18 & over through the Masters Program.  All skill levels are welcome.  Practices are offered four mornings per week.  Click HERE for more details!

MISSION STATEMENT

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 an 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.
