Welcome to Boulder Aquatic Masters




While many of you are still hitting the slopes for fresh snow BAM is actively getting ready for the summer season.  Here is the list of Open Water events we will be hosting throughout the summer. Whether you are training for the Ironman or just looking for safe & friendly course to practice your open water skills, BAM is the place to swim!

    from 6:10 am to 7:40 am
  • Saturday Open Water Swims - Saturday June 28th  & Saturday July 26th

All events take place at the Boulder Reservoir.  You do not have to be a BAM member to participate.  Check out our membership options under the Open Water Tab.


BAM is looking for volunteer lifeguards and watchers for our open water swims to spend a few mornings this summer watching swimmers go by while getting a glimpse of the best sunrise in Boulder County!  With a small commitment of only 5 open water swims, BAM will reimburse your Lifeguard, First aid, and CPR certification costs!  and you will receive $100 credit toward next year’s membership.   Watchers are eligible for the $100 towards next year’s membership too!

BAM couldn’t run these open water swims without the help of so many wonderful volunteers. If you haven’t volunteered yet, now is your opportunity to pay it forward and jump in that kayak yourself!

If you are interested in joining our fleet for the summer of 2014 please Contact Christina Sarnecki at casarnecki@gmail.com. This includes both past and future guards.
