The non-profit Pikes Peak Athletics Foundation was formed to reduce financial barriers that may inhibit those of all skill levels from achieving success as swimmers. Limited access to pools, swim lessons, and coaches has long been a deterrent preventing many of lower socio-economic status from participating in the sport of swimming. The foundation develops community outreach programming that includes the full continuum of the swimming experience. We offer need-based scholarships for water safety education, swim lessons, training and competition. Most of this programming utilizes the physical and human resources available at Pikes Peak Athletics Training Center.
