Welcome to the ALTITUDE PERFORMANCE SWIM TEAM.  Electronic Registration platform is for the 2020 Summer Swim Season! We are pleased to offer electronic registration. The process is simple for both returning and new members. You'll get access to your own private account that will maintain your own contact information, and more.

ALTITUDE PERFORMANCE SWIM TEAM wants the swimmers to understand that it is important to be consistent with practice attendance this summer.  We will allow us to keep track of our swimmers in case we have to do tracing for the County Health.  I understand families will have some vacation time, but understand we have a limit numbers for the summer so keep that in mind. 

ALTITUDE PERFORMANCE SWIM TEAM for the summer Altitude's practices will be held at Nor'Wood Recreational District Swim Pool.  These practices will run 7:00-9:00 am and each family will choose a Monday-Wednesday-Friday or Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday schedule.  Swimmers will be assigned a spot upon arrival.  SWIMMERS MUST COME TO PRACTICE IN THEIR SWIM SUIT AND LEAVE IN THEIR SWIM SUIT, NO USE OF THE CLUB BATHROOM TO CHANGE.

All your family swimmers can swim at the same time!

COACHING STAFF

Mike Stromberg, Head Coach/Owner
Coach Mike has been involved with swimming for 46 years. In the last 10 years his swimmers have competed at the Senior and Junior National, Sectionals, Senior Zone and CO High School State Championships.  Altitude swimmers have become high school All Americans and USA Swimming Scholastic All Americans.  Currently Mike is a member of USA Swimming National Rules Committee.

His success has been at all levels, club, high school, YMCA and collegiately.  He coached at the University of North Dakota for 20 years, his women's team was in the NCAA Top 6 for 17 straight years and for those accomplishments, he was recognized in 1989 and 1999 as NCAA II National Women's Swim Coach of the Year.  He is certified as ASCA Level 5.

Karen Athen - Head Age Group Coach
Coach Karen is starting her 3rd year with Altitude Performance Swim Team.  She is our leader for the age group portion of the Altitude Performance Swim Team.
Karen was born in England, she moved to California at a young age and began swimming competitively at the age of eight with the Fairfield Seahorses. She swam mostly for the summer swim league and few years with the year-round AAU Team, Solano Aquatics Club where she had her first opportunity to coach. She her favorite stroke was backstroke, who qualified for regional meets all four years of high school and was an All-American in 50 back in the early 80s. As well as swimming, Karen also played water polo in high school and beyond.
     Karen began coaching at the age of 18 while coaching for the Fairfield Aquatic Club.  She developed a program for developmental swimmers into competitive swimmers within one summer. Some even competed in 100 IMs their first year. She finds few things as rewarding as helping young swimmers achieve their goals.
     After raising her children, Karen returned to coaching as the assistant boys and girls swim coach at Vista Ridge High School until they cancelled the program due to budget cuts. Karen has worked with swimmers of all ages and most levels, but her first love is still age groupers. She has spent the last 3.5 years serving as the head swim coach at Life Time Fitness in Colorado Springs, where she coached all levels and produced many state qualifiers. During Karen?s tenure at Life Time, the team nearly doubled in size and has continued to grow in quality and quantity.
     A few years ago, at the age of 47, she finally succeeded in a longtime goal of competing in a 70.3 Ironman competition. Which goes to prove, you are never too old to achieve your dreams.

SUMMER WEEKLY PRACTICE SCHEDULE
This summer it very important that swimmers are consistent in attending practice, if you plan on missing regularly I rather you begin to swim in the fall.  The team has to be set up to do tracing so consistency is important.
