Tennis Club is home to the Greenwood Tiger Sharks swim team, a USA
Swimming club with swimmers from ages 6 to 20. The team trains
year-round and competes with other USA Swimming clubs in Colorado
and throughout the country in a program that fosters excellence at
all levels from novice to national and international
The team practices in a
25 meter indoor pool and a 25 meter outdoor pool, which is open
year-round. More space allows less swimmers per lane for more
valuable practice time.
The Tiger Sharks benefit
from their location within Greenwood Athletic and Tennis Club by
training with nationally certified personal trainers for dryland
GTS coaches are full-time
salaried, thereby making them more accessible by phone, email or
during office hours.

team for one week before being required to officially
register. Evaluations typically last 15 minutes.
