The Morgan Marlins Swim Team is a seasonal swim team and a member of USA Swimming. USA Swimming is the National Governing Body for competitive swimming in the United States.   The Morgan Marlins Swim Team is also a member of Colorado Swimming and Northern Colorado Swimming. 


       The Morgan Marlins Swim Team is governed by a Board of Directors and bylaws approved by the board.  We receive no financial support from any public agency.  Rather, membership fees, fundraising projects and donations cover our expenses.  The Fort Morgan Evening Optimist Club has become a regular sponsor of the Morgan Marlins Swim Team.  They assist us both financially and with volunteers for our home swim meets.  The Marlins joined Morgan County Junior Athletics in 2015 and under their umbrella we are a Non-Profit organization. 

         We have swimmers from age 6 to 18. Our swimmers compete at a very high level, at a moderate level, at a beginning level and some who do not compete at all but utilize practices for fitness. 


       The mission of the Morgan Marlins Swim Team is to promote the sport of swimming by educating and motivating all team members. The professional coaching staff is dedicated to developing and motivating swimmers at all levels by teaching stroke skills and techniques, promoting physical and mental fitness, providing a safe and fun environment for the development of character, pride, self-confidence, a sense of accomplishment, self-discipline and encouraging good sportsmanship. Family and community members have the opportunity to support our team member by volunteering their time and energy at practices, meets, and organizational events.
