1. Group Practices & Rosters – In order to properly train all swimmers, allocate lanes spaces, times, SWAT’s financial resources, and to stay in compliance with Covid-19 Regulations instituted by the State of Texas, the Centers for Disease Control, USA Swimming/Border Swimming, and the City of El Paso, Texas Aquatics Department, it is imperative that Parents follow the Group Practice Schedules.  

SWAT offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the team to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities. Click Here to send us an email to schedule a tryout or request more information.

COVID-19 information and PRACTICE SCHEDULE (Updated January 2021) - Parents and Swimmers: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the City of El Paso has limited and may increase the limitations of the use of city pools.  The SWAT Board has secured lanes at the Westside YMCA to provide as much water time for our swimmers as possible. Please know this means less practice time for every group than we would prefer and potential schedule changes BUT we will try our hardest to not lose the opportunity to train (Please click here for FAQs and Info regarding SWAT's emergency practice schedule).
