Masters Swimming

Are you looking for a great way to get fit or an alternate way to train? Perhaps you're looking to compete in your first triathlon or train for on open water or USMS swim meet. Our Masters team has a large selection of practice times and offers coaching expertise that fits to each person's goals. Practices are coaches to push each individual, and are specific to your speed.  Those who show up to 2-3 practices a week have shown improvement in their technique, efficiency, and speed in only two months!

At a minimum, you should be able to swim for at least 30 minutes. Workouts are an hour long, and you will keep moving the entire time.
