Elevation Athletics

Where Your Physical, Mental & Emotional Health

Are of Utmost Importance...and trained to be improved EVERYDAY.



At Elevation Athletics,

we're on a mission to improve the competitive swimming experience

for everyone!

Here's what people are saying about Elevation Athletics...



our philosophy

Everyone has a place at Elevation Athletics!

At EA, we're a family with a simple philosophy...

Your goals are our goals, swimming should be fun, and life balance is an important part of the process.


In an effort to help you achieve your goals...


We teach, we collaborate, and we work with you every step of the way.


Our process includes:

  • A holistic training model  that proactively trains all the necessary physical, mental & emotional skills every athlete needs; and

  • A collaborative coaching model where we work side by side with the athletes, helping them learn to create ownership and personal accountability for their own success.

Our model is for individuals who have a desire to learn and do what it takes to become their best in sport and life. 




At Elevation Athletics, we understand that training is more than just laps in a pool, dryland and weights.  It's about training the entire person:  mind, body and life skills.

  • Swim Training & Technique Work

  • Team Strength - dryland/weights for Olympic Sport Athletes

  • Performance Psychology & Flow Training

  • Sports Nutrition

  • Recovery Training

  • Power Training 

  • Leadership Development

  • Life Skills Development

  • College Recruiting Coaching/Mentoring

  • And much more...

What separates EA from the rest, is we train each area individually and coach athletes on how to connect everything to achieve their goals faster and far more efficiently.

Frequently asked questions

What makes Elevation Athletics so different than any other swim team in the state of Colorado?

There are two major differences between EA and other teams. First, we offer pro-active training in ALL the necessary areas an athlete needs to become their best in both sport and life. These include performance psychology, sports nutrition, quality workouts based in technique, coaches who understand the physiology of training, recovery, technology, and personal development - all wrapped in a fun team atmosphere. Second, we offer one price for your membership per month. No extra charges for the traditional fees associated with swimming (meet fees, facility charges, weights, dryland, suits, caps, etc.). One price per month. Period.

Do you really charge just one fee per month with no extra costs?

Yes....and just about everything is covered. Our goal is for everything to eventually be covered. We've structured our program to work as a team, not as separate individuals joining a team. So, we're able to leverage our group together to reduce costs. We have also created partnerships with companies to offer products and services at the lowest cost possible. Because of these two reasons, we're able to charge one price per month that includes everything we can offer. In addtion, as our membership grows, we will be able to offer more services and products to our members, without having to raise our prices. We are 100% transparent. There are no hidden fees or charges. The more our membership grows, the more we can offer to our members. We are working our way to having all travel fees & outside our staff programs /gear/etc. included in your monthly membership fee. We are not quite there yet, but as we grow & our sponsorships grow, we'll be able to provide those to you as well. Click Here to see what members receive as our membership grows.

How many meets can I go to every year?

In general, we go to about 12 meets every year as a team. We make sure we only attend the meets we need to go to, so you don't spend all your weekends sitting at a pool. As we progress as a team, our goal will be to attend higher caliber meets as a team regionally, nationally and internationally. Your monthly dues stay the same regardless of whether you attend one (1) meet each year or all twelve (12). So we encourage you to attend with us, so we can be a force as a team.

Can I really attend practice at any of your facilities any night of the week?

Yes. Each of our locations offer different training times to fit your busy schedule. So, if you have trouble making the early workout, you're more than welcome to attend practice at either of our other locations later in the evening Locations we utilize throughout the year: Elks Lodge Pool (Boulder, CO) - Fall, Winter, Spring Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center (Thornton, CO) - year round Superior North Pool (Superior, CO) - Fall, Winter, Spring YMCA (Arapahoe & 95th in Lafayette, CO) - Fall, Winter, Spring Mapleton YMCA (Boulder, CO) - year round Dawson School Pool (Lafayette, CO) - summer We are always expanding for more location options & currently working to build our own training center.

Who will be my coach?

Elevation Athletics has a collaborative coaching model. We believe all coaches and athletes should work together so the athlete can become their best. So, you'll get to work with all the coaches on staff throughout the week. Now, we know you'll naturally gravitate toward the coach you see most often, but we'll make sure you work with all of us! This philosophy helps the athlete to learn to take all the coaches perspectives & meld them with their own to creatively improve their skills faster.

Can I get out of paying the Initial Equipment Fee?

No - for the most part. This fee is required to pay for team apparel, training gear and group training equipment that everyone will have access to....that we'll use pretty much every day. We use specific training equipment because we've found it is the best for the type of training we do. Should you already own a pair of DMC Fins, Arena Powerfin Pro Fins or a snorkel, you may deduct these from your $225 initial membership fee. We have partnerships with Adidas, DMC Fins and Finis, so we can get you these pieces of equipement far cheaper with us, than if you bought them on your own. This fee is only for National Team and Regional Team athletes. 10 & under, Splash & Masters/Triathlete members may purchase any of our equipement at our online team store at our team discounted price. 10 & Under & Splash athletes will have to pay a reduced ($100) fee upon joining to cover USA Swimming insurance and to receive some team swag to get started (t-shirt & caps).

What time are practices?

CLICK HERE FOR OUR TEAM CALENDAR - includes practice & meet schedules. In general for the fall/winter/spring, we offer several practice locations & times each evening to fit your schedule. Our practices run after school from 4:00 - 9:00 p.m. (depending on location). We also offer morning options for our older swimmers 2-3 days per week before school, depending on the time of year. In general for the summer, we offer both long course & short course options. Our primary workout times remain in the evenings from 4:00 - 9:00 p.m., but we also have a morning option (usually) 3 days per week for those who work or have conflicts. Long course practice times are dependent on available location & available times. Usually our practices will be in the mornings/early afternoon between 7:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

What is Your Meet Schedule?

Our meet schedule is only available to our active members. In general, we go to about one (1) meet per month. The meets we attend are based on the goals of the team and the best opportunity for our athletes to achieve their personal goals now (and in the future). If you are currently an active member, click the login link at the top of our homepage to access our most up to date meet schedule.
