About

Welcome to the home page of the Ventana Canyon Swim Team. Our team has been at The Lodge at Ventana Canyon since 1987. We are fortunate to have access to a beautiful 25 yard heated pool with eight lanes. Our team consists of both year-round and summer only swimmers, beginners through advanced, club members and non-members.  

Things are going to be a little different this season. We have lots of safety measures in place to help keep our athletes, families, and coaches safe.

About our seasons

Our year is divided in two seasons. The year round USA Swimming season runs from August to the end of March, culminating in Junior Olympics, State Championships, and beyond. Throughout the season our swimmers work in depth on stroke technique, endurance, sprint training, and regularly participate in USA Swimming short course meets.

From April to July we join the Southern Arizona Aquatic Association for a short and fun-filled summer season. During this busy season our swimmers compete in many dual meets and some qualifying invitationals. We finish the season with an exciting two-day Championship and team banquet.

We also offer USA Swimming long course meets for those who desire and qualify to participate during our summer season.

About our practices and groups

All of our groups are currently practicing at least 4 days per week, with many of the groups practicing 5 days per week. We have 3 different general groups that are loosely based on age and more concretely based on the ability levels of the swimmers: 8 years old and under group, 9-12 years old group, and 13+ years old/Senior group. Each group has several levels of ability within, and the groups are divided into smaller groups. The coaches place swimmers in specific groups/lanes based on an evaluation process. Factors like attitude, effort, sportsmanship, work ethic, and commitment often play a roll in the coaches decisions. We currently have 8 practice groups.

We are a team that fosters respect for our coaches, teammates, and competitors. Regardless of ability, we always encourage effort, and we strive to help our swimmers achieve their personal best.
