MACS: One of Colorado’s Top Mid-Sized Swim Teams
Mission Aurora Colorado Swimming (MACS) is headquartered in Aurora, Colorado. We own our own pool at Parker Road and Quincy. This affords us flexibility in scheduling and consistency for our training. Our 13 and Over swimmers and most experienced younger athletes train at our team pool year round. Our coaching staff has been involved with Colorado swimming on every level from Age Group Chair (Coach Catherine) up to General Chair of Colorado Swimming (Coach Andy for 4 years) and President of the Suburban Swim League (Coach Andy currently and for many years). Coach Andy and Catherine have coached MACS for over 20 years along with Coach Gregory for the past 10 years. Our team was founded in 1977. During our more than 40 years of serving Aurora and surrounding communities, MACS swimmers have excelled at a wide range of swimming events--from small, local events to the U.S. Olympic Trials. MACS consistently finishes among the top teams our size in the CO State Championships. When an athlete becomes a member of MACS, they will learn the value of sportsmanship and teamwork. Through the sport of swimming, MACS swimmers develop physical, emotional, and intellectual skills that will last a lifetime.
The USA Swimming Club Excellence Program has designated MACS as a Silver Medal Club. This program identifies and recognizes USA clubs for their commitment to performance excellence, successful club administration, and for their support of USA swimming. MACS is one of only a handful of teams in Colorado to receive this award.
Dedicated to improving swimming performance, stroke technique, individual goal setting, and the physical and mental development of all of our swimmers
Swimmers are given every opportunity to achieve their goals within the team framework, which ultimately aids them in developing and mastering self-discipline, self-motivation, and perseverance. The team philosophy is encompassed in the words courage and perseverance.
Courage is the willingness to accept risk and endure failings. Courage does not exist unless there is a situation that presents opportunity for success. We encourage our athletes to embrace these opportunities and not fear the outcome.
Perseverance is the backbone of success in any endeavor in life. One cannot succeed at the highest levels without enduring some setbacks. These difficult times can create a lack of faith, low self-esteem, and an obvious drop in enthusiasm. Perseverance is the quality that transcends these difficult times. It allows the individual to find the true strength of their character.
