YEAR ROUND PROGRAMS-ADULTS
Masters Swimming:
Masters is a coached workout of one hour and 15 minutes (leaving early is OK), and is a great way to get your workout done within a group format.  Coaches help on tips with stroke technique and provide workouts to challenge you, enhancing your cardiopulmonary system and swimming experience.  This is a wonderful program if you plan to do triathlons, compete in USMS swimming, or simply want to get in shape by swimming a varied workout.  Master swimmers do not need to be “pro-swimmers,” but do need to be comfortable swimming 1000 meters in 30 minutes. This is a great workout for those who enjoy a group dynamic and are missing having a coach run a practice.  The goal for practice is to swim between 3000-4000 meters, but having a good time doing it!   Pull buoys and kickboards are provided.  Please bring goggles, and any additional equipment you prefer (paddles, fins, etc).   Please register at the Front Desk.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 7:00-8:15am & 9:00am -10:15am  
Tuesday, Thursday 12:00pm -1:15pm

Adult Swim Clinic:
Swim clinic is a class geared toward those who may be able to swim a length or more in the pool, but who may not be very comfortable doing so.  Coaches help with breathing, stroke technique, and proper body positioning and balance, so that you can find more ease and efficiency in the water.  This program is more geared towards technique than a swim workout, such as Masters, but is working to prepare those who want to join Masters in the future. The Coach will teach; all strokes (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Freestyle) and wall turns (open and closed).  Please bring goggles; swim cap and any extra equipment that you want to learn how to use.  Please register at the Front Desk.
