Mountain Valley Performance Academy is a non-profit corporation. MVPA homebase is located in Pueblo West, Colorado and extends the Front Range. We are a registerd USA Triathlon Club and Swimming Club under the umbrella of MVPA. 


Our purpose is to provide a family training, conditioning and competition opportunity for all ages, genders, and abilities including para-athletes who are serious about developinig and improving their swimming, running, and biking skills. Club members can choose to register as a USA swimming athlete or USA triathlon athlete or both. Cross training of swimming, biking, running, and strength and conditioning is included in the program for all athlete club members.  Now parents and children can train together and set their own individual and family goals.



The MVPA mission is to train, condition, and educate athletes of all ages and abilities where sanctioned competitive swimming and triathlon/multisport events occur.  Using computerized biomechanical analysis, athletes will improve training and conditioning skills in swimming, running, biking, and joint and muscle strengthening to enhance competitive success on the local, regional, state, and national levels.



The MVPA vision is to develop a well-organized club that is inclusive of the entire family and community in training and educating those who compete in competitive swimming and triathlon/multisport events. MVPA will become the club with well-developed athletes that colleges and universities seek after to award scholarships, while other athletes will go on to acquire local, regional, national, and world class titles in competitive swimming and triathlon/multisport events.
