Rock Creek Flyers Swim Team

The Rock Creek Flyers are a competitive summer league swim team for kids 4-18 and is a member of the Boulder Valley Summer Swim League.  Our season starts mid-May and finishes by the end of July.  Swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool (25 meters) using any stroke.  Practices are in the afternoon until school ends and in either the morning or evening (depending on age group) during the summer.  The Flyers will swim 6 dual meets this season and will compete at Hot Shot / Long Shot, Pentathlon, and the League Championships.

 

Founded in 1990s the team is run by its Board of Directors and has something for everyone, whether it’s having a fun summer activity, staying in fantastic shape, or taking swimming to a competitive level. Our goal is to give children the lifelong gift of swimming, along with instilling a love of the sport.
