There are a few factors to take into consideration including how long you’ve been out of the water, your general fitness level, and your previous swim experience. We have a wide range of abilities on the team, so if you aren’t sure if Masters is right for you, we offer some one-on-one swim lessons, and support to get you into the flow of masters swimming. Inquire to set these up with our Master swim instructor.
We are currently hosting 8 weeks blocks of Master Swim and will add more slots in coming weeks. If you’d like to join or get on the waitlist and register, please contact the front desk for more details.
Depending on your interval, the workouts range between 2,000-3,500 yards in an hour. There is usually a warm up with your choice of swimming, a warm up set with some drills or kicking, and then a main set. The workouts vary to focus on distance, sprint or stroke. Some are a mixture to keep everyone engaged. Due to covid guidelines, we have 2 swimmers per lane (12 total), with each swimmer ending and starting their swim intervals at opposite sides of the pool.
Yes, Angela Naeth, Professional Triathlete and Triathlon Coach is our current Master Swim Coach.
Currently our program is set for Monday and Thursday evenings 6:15-7:15pm. More options and sessions may be available later this fall.
We have a variety of intervals at each practice and we generally have 6 lanes available. The intervals range from about 1:30 to 2:20 so there’s room for everyone!
Once you get on deck, be sure to bring your own equipment if possible, but also grab a kickboard and pull buoy from the bins.
Don’t worry! Just call/email us and we’ll answer your questions!
