RACE Year Round
RACE is intended for the serious swimmer who wishes to train and compete year round. Technique and proper swimming are emphasized while training is introduced.
RACE started in 1999 with two swimmers, this US Swimming affiliated team has grown to nearly 70 and boasts some of the fastest swimmers in Colorado. It is available only to members of RallySport; however, swimmers may become members on their own. RACE is divided into three groups: two Senior groups (age 13 and over) and a 12 and under group.
You may discontinue RACE at any time but if you cancel under 3 months a cancellation fee of $50 will apply. If you wish to remain a member but do not have a swimmer on RACE the membership rate will go to the regular club rates. To inquire about the membership rates please email Jackie. To cancel at any time please print, date and sign the RACE Cancellation Form and turn it in Jackie Dayton. Cancellation must be done in advance. No retroactive cancellation refunds.

The RACE workout group heirarchy is designed to provide workout groups composed of swimmers with similar abilities and goals. Advancement through the workout gropus is a process and reflects progress in training and increasing commitment to swimming.
Preteam/Junior I: (6-12 years old, must have completed swim lessons up to level 6): Primary objectives are to build skill and enjoyment of swimming. Learning the fundamentals of all 4 strokes will be a part of all practice sessions. Our goal is for the swimmer to build confidence, enjoy team atmosphere and become a more proficient swimmer.
Junior II: (8-12 years old & must be able to swim 25 of all 4 strokes): Primary objectives are skill development of all 4 strokes plus enjoyment of swimming. Swimmers will be introduced to set progressions, the pace clock, intervals and speed change. Competition is not mandatory but encouraged.
PreSenior: (10-14 years old, must have mastered all 4 strokes, starts and turns): Primary focus is on training elements with a major emphasis on kicking. Swimmers will build a solid base of technique to serve them throughout life and allow the introduction of more intense training.
Senior I: (15 &up, High School training group). Focus on technique while improving overall fitness. Preparation may focus on High School seasons while providing a springboard to more advanced training group.
Senior II: Most advanced/National level swimming: Senior I has grown into one of the most competitive year round teams in the state of Colorado and is regularly a force on the Sectional and National level. Through the last 10 years we are proud to have developed a National Champion (5k Open water-Christine Jennings), multiple Olympic trials qualifiers and regularly take swimmers to both Junior and Senior National Championships.
