The Pikes Peak Athletics Masters Group is a constituent of Colorado Masters that trains at the Olympic Training Center in central Colorado Springs. In order to swim with this group you must be a registered US Masters or USA Swimming member. The group was formed for four reasons:
1. To provide a training opportunity for adults who prefer a middle-of-the-day workout rather than early morning or evening training.
2. To provide experienced, focused coaching for adults.
3. To provide adults with an out-door swimming opportunity in the beautiful Colorado climate when weather permits.
4. To provide adults with an opportunity to train in a 50 meter pool during winter months.
