MASTERS SWIM TEAM
Masters swimming is an organized swim program for adults 18 and older and is not a ‘learn to swim’ program. SCYMCA masters swim team is made up of former high school, college, and age-group swimmers, as well as triathletes. Workouts have 5 levels of abilities, and workouts range from 2,800 meters to 4,500 meters in distance during each practice. Swimmers should know the basics for each of the 4 competitive strokes. Practices will consist of drills to improve all 4 strokes, endurance and speed.
The team has two sessions a year, meeting 3 times a week. Participants are encouraged to become US Masters Members, so that they can participate in the two US masters meets that the team takes part in.
