Masters (Adult) Swim Practices
PROGRAM Masters (Adult) Swim Practices

Masters (adult/18 and Older) swim team practices are offered on specific weekday evenings and mornings year-round (no practice on federal holidays). There are no required workouts, and there are no tryouts. We do recommend that swimmers have the ability to swim at least 25-meters non-stop. These are not swim lessons, this are a swim-based workout. The first week is free, then you must register and pay a registration fee, due five times each year. You can join the masters (adult) practices any time during the year. 

Masters (18 & Older) Practice Schedules (no practice on federal holidays):

  • Mornings: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 5:00-6:15 a.m.
  • Evenings: Cancelled. Will resume when staff are available.

How do practices work?  The written practice is posted by each lane at the pool each day. The first 30-minutes, 5:00-5:30, is a self-directed warm-up. At 5:30 a coach steps in and directs the remaining part of the workout. All you need to do is show up and get started. 

Youth swimmers already on the team may practice with the masters on a space-available basis. Note that these workouts are fitness based and are different from regular youth workouts. Elementary school-age swimmers must ask a coach prior to swimming, and will only swim the first 30-minutes of the workout. Youth swimmers may not swim the evening masters workouts on youth tryout days. Questions? Ask a coach!

Sample practices for the fastest level masters workout are here (the workouts are modified for swimmers not at that fastest level). If you are an adult and you can swim 25 meters non-stop, you can start swimming with the masters.

See you at the pool!
