Aurora Masters Swimming

Aurora Masters is a program for swimmers age 18 and over.  Formed in 1979, this team has become a juggernaut in competition statewide, nationally, and even worldwide. The Gators swim for a variety of reasons: to stay fit, to socialize, and to train for competition. They are a diverse group of all ages, with swimmers from around the globe, with a variety of occupations and interests.

A number of team members compete regularly at United States Masters Swimming (USMS) events throughout the year. Annually, in March of each year, the team competes in the Colorado Masters Swimming Short Course State Championships. The team has historically done very well and placed 4th overall in 2012. In the Summer months, you will find many Aurora Masters swimmers competing in Triathlons and other open water events in Colorado and throughout the United States.


In 2012, the USMS Long Course National Championship meet was held in Omaha, Nebraska immediately following the Olympic Trials. A number of Aurora Masters swimmers competed at this meet and Colorado Masters Swimming won the overall team award!


Practices are held at Gateway High School on Tuesday and Thursday evenings as well as Saturday mornings (sometimes we practice at Pier Point due to school events). Workouts range to accommodate the casual lap swimmer to the seasoned competitor. No matter what your speed or ability, you are welcome with this great group of swimmers!
