2018 Season Information - Last Updated, February 25, 2018

Thanks for visiting the Ken-Caryl Swim Club Home page.

NEW for 2018!!!
We are excited to announce that year-round club swimmers will be able to participate as swimmers with KCSC this summer! The South Jeffco Swim League adopted this change into the 2018 by-laws. Year-round club swimmers will be able practice and swim with Ken-Caryl Swim Club, however, these swimmers will NOT be able swim at the Ken-Caryl Invite or the State Championship meets. Coach Toby and the KCSC Steering Committee are considering practice requirements for those swimmers who wish to participate in dual meets and the League Championship meet. We will provide this information at the family team meetings on April 4th and 5th. Please email Rebecca Matkins at with any questions.

It is that time of year again - time to start planning for summer swimming!! We are looking forward to returning as South Jeffco League Champions for the 3rd year in a row. Toby Mullarkey will be returning as our head coach again this year, and is looking to continue the growth and success from last summer!!

We will once again offer our spring swim stroke and turn clinics at The Ridge on Sunday mornings on the following dates; April 8th, April 15th, April 22nd, April 29th and May 6th

Times for all dates are 9:15-10am for all 8 & under swimmers, and 10-11am for ages 9 & older swimmers. Coach Toby would like to strongly encourage all new, and returning 8 & under swimmers to attend at least two of these clinics.

The cost is $15 per swimmer per session or $60 for all 5 sessions.
Registration information for clinics coming soon!
