Swimming is a FAMILY SPORT, and that is why you will see Swim Dog parents and their children swimming together in practices and at swim meets. Our goals are:
Building a solid relationship with Denver Public Schools and the local community.
Swimming improvement through technique first and conditioning second.
Encouraging parents and their children to practice and compete together.
Enjoying life through swimming!
