Join Mile High Multisport in the tranquil setting of Grant Ranch for open water swimming. 2013 represents the 5th year we have been welcomed by the Grant Ranch Community. Athletes can work on their stroke, sighting and transitions in preparation for their upcoming races. Additionally, we offer swim clinics and will be hosting a swim race this season. Back by popular demand will be a open water swim race on July 7th!! Check the swim race series link after the first of the year for more information.
You do not need to be a client of MHM or any other organization to swim in the lake. We welcome all clubs and other coaching services. You are not required to be a member of COMSA to swim in the lake, we are self insured.
Swimming is open to the general public during the times listed below. Children under the age of 18 must have a current USAT membership card AND approval prior to swimming. (Parents will need to complete a special waiver.

GRANT RANCH RESIDENTS, PLEASE CONTACT THE FRONT DESK FOR DISCOUNT CODES BEFORE REGISTERING..
NEW FOR 2013!! Once you have registered please bring your ticket receipt to the lake. You will be provided a pass which you must bring with you each time along with a photo ID. If you don’t have your pass, you can’t swim. We will not have lists as we have in years past. Photo ID and your ticket are required every time. Don’t assume the person working registration will know you. Monitors will be informed, no pass and ID no swimming (It’s a liability thing). If you don’t register in advance we can’t let you swim for liability purposes. Monitors will keep your pass and return it to you when you exit the lake. (This is our way of verifying entrance and exit of everyone from the water)
Typically on weekday mornings and weekends, parking is not an issue. Week nights will present issues as the residents will also have use of the facility. If the lot is full,there is additional parking at the school located 1/4 mile south on Grant Ranch Blvd. If you park in the adjoining neighborhoods please be respectful of the homeowners properties and neighborhood. If you park on the street please pay attention to the “no parking” signs. If we start over running the community we will need to limit sales. DO YOUR PART AND CAR POOL so we can get more people in the lake.
LOCATION/HOURS OF OPERATION:
The lake will be closed if threatening weather is in the vicinity. Please do not call MHM or Grant Ranch to ask if the lake is open. An announcement will be posted on our face book page once we have knowledge the lake is closing. Sometimes we won’t know until we arrive on site.
