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.

Swimming Should also be a process of continual improvement throughout a swimmers career.


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 learn to take 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. 

Training Groups



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

Unlike many programs, where workouts are geared toward the fastest swimmers, at EA, we've got a unique model, where the workouts are written for EVERYONE in the water.

We will teach you how to make the most of our workouts, so you can reach your goals faster and see more rapid improvement.

Whether you're trying to get into shape, staying in shape or have the goal to make the Olympics (and anything in between), we've got you covered!

EA Partner's & Sponsors

  • How do I contact a coach?
    You can either email us directly or sign-up for our office hours each week through the link in our Sunday Team email.
  • How do I sign-up for a swim meet?
    We use Team Unify for the backend of our website. When a meet is available, we'll send out an email to let you know and you can log into your Team Unify account and sign up for the events that YOU'D like to swim.
  • Will I ever have to pay anything extra?
    We do our best to limit costs for our members. First, we offer a full-time pricing option that doesn't change each month. You can budget and things will stay the same. We know at first glance, this price may seem like a lot, but we've added all the general swimming costs and averaged that out over the course of the year, so for many, our price is less expensive than other options in the area. The following will be extra costs: - Team Travel (outside the state or to the other end of the state - USA Swimming Registration (yearly) - September (yearly) team apparel package ....and that's about it!
  • Does EA have any team rules or policies?
    Yes. And you are required to know them as a member of the team. Use the link entitled "Team Resources" in Team Unify to familiarize yourself with our policies, expectations and codes of conduct.
  • What if I have a question that's not being covered here or on the homepage?
    First, please check the "Team Resources" page in Team Unify. Ninety-percent of the questions you will have are already covered within our members handbook provided in that section. Second, feel free to reach out to any coach. We have "office hours" listed in our team-wide Sunday email, that any athlete or parent can use to reach out to us. You can also email us anytime.
