About the Willow Creek 3 Swim Team
The Willow Creek 3 Swim Team is a 501(c)3 non-profit origination based in Centennial, Colorado. We are a summer swim team that is a must for all of the kids in the neighborhood as well as their friends outside of Willow Creek. Our swim team has been a staple in the neighborhood for over 25 years. Our team is for all abilities and levels with an emphasis on learning to swim better with competitions as a sort of measuring stick to gauge personal accomplishments. There are a handful of year-round swimmers, but the big majority of the team is kids having fun for the summer.
"We were unsure about joining swim team at first. After all, my 3 kids hadn?t had formal swim lessons in over 2 years. And the idea of waking up early and swimming laps didn?t sound like fun. I am so happy another mom talked me into it! My kids fell in love with their coaches immediately. They made so many good friends. With all the fun events planned for kids, they had even more opportunities to splash around with their friends and coaches. My girls didn?t even realize how much they learned this summer until the swim meets. Everyone is a winner as well at Dolphins with medals, ribbons and "speeding tickets" for the kids that beat their own time. My kids also loved swim meets - relay races with their buddies, drinking cup-of-noodle soups between swims, cheering their friends and coaches on? My 4 year old sung the Dolphin team cheer in the shower all summer long! My girls were super sad when swim team was over, and begged me to sign them up for next year already." ~ Dolphin Parent
"My grandson has been on the Dolphins Swim Team for 8 years. Every year he again looks forward to reconnecting with his friends and improving his swimming. This swim team has been invaluable!!! ~ Dolphin Grandparent
"Being on the Dolphins swim team was the highlight of the year for our two boys. They are so sad the season is over and continue to talk about next year's swim team season. This swim team was not just about swimming to them, but it taught them commitment, sportsmanship and how to be a part of a team and community. They had a blast meeting new friends and we really enjoyed watching them get better and better with each meet." ~ Dolphin Parent
It is a great place to practice what the kids may already know, learn more and learn other strokes and generally be more comfortable and proficient around the water. And they usually have a lot fun while they're at it! Plus hanging out with their friends or meeting new friends!
Our team is for all abilities and levels with an emphasis on learning to swim better with competitions as a sort of measuring stick to gauge personal accomplishments. There are a handful of year-round swimmers, but the big majority of the team is kids having fun for the first part of the summer.
WC3 Dolphin Swim Team is open to kids age 4-18. For the younger swimmers, the coaches request the kids are comfortable in the water. Both WC3 residents and non-residents are welcome to join.
Season starts mid-May and ends mid-July. Our end of the year party is typically held at Pirates Cove. Practice are held in the afternoon in May. Once school is out, practices move to the morning time frame (7:30 am - 10:45 am). Swimmers are grouped on ability more than age.
Registration opens in March 15th. Our swim team is open to resident and non-resident swimmers.
Overall, swim team is great! Having the kids in the water each and every day is extremely beneficial to learn to swim!
