WELCOME TO THE

TEAM

 

MISSION

At Elevation Athletics, we're on a mission to set a new standard for the quality of how athletes train, collaborate and live their lives.  Using a holistic model, we pro-actively and progressively train all the necessary skills and resources athletes need to succeed at their highest levels in sport and life. 

GET EXCITED ABOUT EA!

"We joined EA because of the holistic training.

We know that no matter how her day is, she comes out of practice happy and rejuvenated."

CONGRATULATIONS TO EA'S

GRADUATING SENIORS!!!!

 

PHILOSOPHY

allinclusive

At Elevation Athletics, we believe everyone should pro-actively train their mind, body and life skills to learn to become their absolute best.

So, we've created a model that encompasses three core philosophies, traditionally overlooked by most sports programs, including:

  • A holistic philosophy that provides all the necessary training and resources an individual needs:  pro-actively training mind, body and life skills;

  • A collaborative coaching philosophy,  where we work in conjunction with the athletes, helping them learn to create ownership and accountability for their own success. Moving away from the top-down "do what I say" model; and

  • A training center philosophy that provides access to all the necessary resources & services every athlete needs to learn to become their best.

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

 

It doesn't matter what level you are now...it matters what level you want to achieve AND your willingness to continually change yourself to get there.

The Future of Sport Training...here today!

 

TRAINING

trainingbenefits

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.

Yes, we provide some of the highest quality coaching in the country when it comes to swim training and we also provide pro-active training to develop elite level skills with:

  • Performance Psychology

  • Sports Nutrition

  • Recovery Technology

  • Swimming Technology

  • Leadership Development

  • Life Skills Development

  • And much more...

Athletes can join us for a training session at any of our locations, any day of the week and receive the same high quality instruction.

We bring athletes together from all of our locations at least once a week to build a stronger team culture and promote healthy, high-level collaboration.

Athletes train with a cohesive team of athletes, coaches and support staff who will challenge them to become better in every way, every day.

Training Locations:

  • Elks Pool (Elks Lodge, Boulder, CO)

  • YMCA of Boulder Valley (Lafayette, CO)

  • Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center (Thornton, CO)

  • Superior North Pool (Superior, CO)

  • Additional locations coming soon!

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?


Our specific practice schedule is only available to our active members. 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. 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.
