Excellence 300
        Practice Groups        

Denver Swim Academy is a competitive USA sanctioned swim team, instructing swimmers from 6 to 14 years old (age group) to national level Seniors (high school age and above). Our training groups are designed to be a developmental ladder, teaching new skills and reinforcing habits as swimmers progress through each group.  Our youngest swimmers (Dolphins, White, and Blue Groups) learn to develop a strong technical foundation for all four competitive strokes, including starts and turns, while also establishing excellent practice habits and strengthening valuable life skills.  As swimmers grow with our team (Silver, Black, and Senior Groups), they continue to be challenged, learning more advanced technical skills and refining those already acquired.

Training Groups

  • Dolphins (6 to 8 years old)
    • ​Developmental group for swimmers that can swim a 25 freestyle and 25 backstroke, but need broader instruction on breaststroke and butterfly
  • White Group (6 to 9 years old)
    • ​Swimmers are legal in all competitive four strokes. Our focus during each practice is on building a stronger technique foundation for all four strokes.
  • Blue Group (9 to 11 years old)
    • ​Swimmers will continue with our team philosophy of improving their technique for all four strokes, while aerobic training plays a more significant role
  • Silver Group (11 to 13 years old)
    • ​Swimmers have strong technical skills and have proven they will be able to handle the increased expectations, including yardage, attendance, and set length
  • Black Group (12 to 14 years old)
    • ​This is the highest level in our age group progression. Swimmers have developed a strong technical and aerobic foundation, along with sound training habits
