BEST 2021 - reset/


Kids have been swimming in Boulder long before there were swim leagues, adult supervision or coaches walking pool decks. Swimming in the Summer is a pastime built around fun and personal, courageous adventure. We'd like to think that we can bring a little bit of that back into our swim team this Summer.

The Boulder Elks Swim Team is retooling an historic, iconic program in an effort to surpass the

expectations of all those involved: swimmers, parents, coaches and the community. We are going to do this by implementing new and progressive ideas in training and competition; while grounding them in ageless ideals of hard work, professionalism, honesty and clarity.

The Summer of 2020 marks the beginning of an investment of talent, money, effort and energy into a program that is determined to return to the status and station of previous years. We humbly and enthusiastically invite you to experience this evolution first hand...


The Boulder Elks Swim Team participates within the rules, regulations and oversight of the

Boulder Valley Summer Swim League (BVSSL). Mostly everything associated with Summer Swim

is dictated by this governing body.

BEST swimmers generally train 4-5 days a week. We have groups for boys and girls aged 8-18 of varying skill and experience levels. Like many teams in the BVSSL, we strive to provide quality coaching and technical instruction for a wide swath of swimmers.
