Join ACES - 10 and Under


Thank you for your interest in Aces Swim Club. We would like to let you know that our 10 & under groups practice in 2 different locations, one being Arapahoe High School/Heritage High School and the other is Cherokee Trail High School.

Here is a little info about our team. We are a year round USA Swimming team. We hold practices from September until late July or early August. Our short course season (practices and meets are swum in 25 yard pools) runs from September until March with the finale being The Colorado Short Course State Meet. Then we continue on through the summer with our long course season. Long course season (most practices and all meets are in 50 meter pools) runs from March until the end of July with the finale being The Colorado Long Course State Meet.

Requirements
Some of the basic requirements to join the team are as follows. The swimmer must be at least 6 years old and be able to swim all four strokes Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Freestyle. We would need them to be able to complete 50 yards of each individual stroke without stopping.

All 8 & Under swimmers in the Jokers practice group are required to attend 2 to 3 practices a week and swim in 1 meet a month.

For all 9 and 10 swimmers in the Jacks practice group, the practice commitment and training standards become more vigorous. All 9 and 10 swimmers are expected to attend 3 practices per week and swim in 1 meet per month.

Rookie/Try Out Week
We will be holding a Rookie/Try Out week for all new swimmers who would like to TRY OUT for the team. This is a try out, not all swimmers will make the team!!! The Rookie/Try Out week will be held at Arapahoe High School and Cherokee Trail High School.

After the Rookie/Try Out week has concluded, we will evaluate each swimmer and decide if they are ready to move into the competitive world of swimming. We have limited space on our rosters, and, if they are not quite ready, we will give them some other alternatives and place them on a waiting list for the future. We will notify each swimmer via email of status.

Every swimmer MUST register for the Rookie/Try Out Week. Please register your swimmer before coming to the pool for the try out. This is not a registration for the team. It is solely for our coaches to have as much knowledge of each swimmer as possible before the week begins. There is also a section available to include their times from previous meets that they have swum in, be it, a summer club meet or a USA Swimming meet or any other type of meet. The Registration Link for the 2015/2016 season will be posted soon.
